Because of the new COVID-19 Protocol that went into effect on Tuesday, ALL ELEMENTARY students that were quarantined on September 2nd can return to school on Monday September 13, 2021 if they are symptom free. We are looking forward to having them back in school. Thank you for your cooperation during this time. Dena Jaminet Elementary Principal
Updated COVID-19 Protocol! If students or staff are exposed to an individual with COVID, they will need to quarantine for a minimum of 5 days. On day 6, they may return to the school to take a rapid test. The test must be given by a member of the office staff. If the test is negative, they can return to class/work while wearing a surgical mask through day 10. Parents and staff members are encouraged to continue monitoring for symptoms through day 10. As always, if a child, staff member or family member has symptoms please continue to quarantine at home for ten days. The cafeteria will be open tomorrow (Wednesday) beginning at 8:00 a.m. for testing. If you would like for your child to return to school tomorrow, please report to the cafeteria for testing. If negative, the student will be given a surgical mask and will return to class. If you do not want your child tested, please have them stay home for the remainder of the ten day quarantine. These students can return to school on Monday September 13th. Please call if you have any questions. Tonight or early morning is fine. 719-298-8786 Dena Jaminet Elementary Principal

April 27, 2021 Dear Parents, Well, I really am sorry to be writing this letter. We have done so well for quite a while. The school currently has multiple positive cases and according to the CDPHE guidelines, it is considered an outbreak and we must quarantine for a period of ten days. We are taking every precaution to keep all the students safe and healthy. As a school, we are following state CDPHE guidelines and are in contact with Conejos County Public Health. We will be quarantining ALL ELEMENTARY STUDENTS IN GRADES PK, K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, AND 6. Since the PK, 2nd and 5th graders have already been out for a few days, they can hopefully return to school on May 3rd. All other grade levels will hopefully be able to return on May 10th. I will send updates on return dates through the website and facebook. Because students were exposed, we will be moving into remote learning starting tomorrow April 28, 2021. Please have your child complete the Emergency Remote Learning Packet for tomorrow’s work. The teachers will be getting materials ready and adding activities to Google Classroom. Students will continue their education through remote learning and Google Classroom. Please have students work on the packet materials and access Google Classroom daily. Parents may begin picking up materials and iPads on Thursday morning until 2:00 pm. If you are unable to come in during those hours, please let me know and I can deliver. During this pandemic, we have two major goals. One, to keep your child safe and two, to continue with in-person learning. This is how we do that. By quarantining, we will keep your children safe and they can continue their learning via remote access. We appreciate your support and understanding. Please feel free to call me with any questions. 719-298-8786 (After hours is fine.) Sincerely, Dena Jaminet Elementary Principal
April 25, 2021 Dear Parents, I sincerely apologize for the late notice. I know how difficult it can be to make last minute adjustments to the weekly schedules. Today we learned that 2nd and 5th graders were possibly exposed. We are taking every precaution to keep all the students safe and healthy. As a school, we are following state CDPHE guidelines and are in contact with Conejos County Public Health. We will be quarantining all students in 2nd and 5th grades. Your child can return to school on May 3rd if they have been symptom free throughout the ten days. Because students were exposed, we will be moving into remote learning starting tomorrow April 26, 2021. The teachers will be getting packets ready tomorrow and adding activities to Google Classroom. We will send iPads and packets home with siblings tomorrow, or parents may pick up the items beginning at 12:00 pm. These students will continue their education through remote learning and Google Classroom. Please have students work on the packet materials and access Google Classroom daily. Please understand that at this time there is no reason to believe that we have any other exposures of COVID-19 at the school. During this pandemic, we have two major goals. One, to keep your child safe and two, to continue with in-person learning. We appreciate your support and understanding. Please feel free to call me with any questions. 719-298-8786 (After hours is fine.) Sincerely, Dena Jaminet Elementary Principal
