In an effort to keep students in school for in-person learning, TSD is strictly enforcing the Return to Learn state requirements for COVID symptoms. These have been in place for over a year, but TSD will be actively enforcing the need to test or stay out the 5 day requirement from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The more we can keep students and staff with symptoms out of the classrooms, the less COVID spread we are likely to have.
If your child has any potential COVID symptoms, please keep them home.
Parents and guardians can use these symptom checklists to determine when to keep their child at home. School staff can also use this tool to determine if they need to stay at home. Any student or staff diagnosed with COVID-19 or who is a close contact of a COVID-19 case should not go to school and should isolate or quarantine according to public health recommendations regardless of current symptoms.
This symptom screen refers only to new symptoms or a change in usual symptoms. A student/staff should not be kept home for usual symptoms they experience due to a chronic condition unless they are worse than usual. These guidelines are in addition to your regular school guidance (for example, a child with vomiting should also not attend school based on usual school guidance).
Please refer to the CDPHE Return to Learn guidance to determine when it is appropriate to return to school. If your child is/you are experiencing any potentially life-threatening symptoms please call 911.
Symptom Screen: If any of the following symptoms are present, keep the child at home/stay at home, inform the school of symptoms, and reach out to a health care provider about COVID-19 testing and next steps for treatment.
