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
I apologize for the late notice, but The Little Indians Learning Fair is going to be postponed until May 25, 2021.

Please call 719-274-5167 or 719-298-8786 if you have questions.

PARENTS NIGHT! Hello, With their being some uncertainty about playing Center next Friday. We are going to do Parents’ Night tomorrow during the Sargent games. I am sorry for the inconvenience, and hope that this will work for everyone. Please let me know if here are any major concerns. With gym capacity limitation we will have to announce the kids after their game. We will still have to clear the gym after each game. Here is the schedule: 4:00pm—JV Girls—We will do Parents night for the JV Girls right after their game. 5:45—Varsity Girls—Parents Night for the Varsity Girls right after their game. 7:45—Varsity Boys—Parents Night for the Varsity Boys and JV Boys will be right after the Varsity Game • Since Sargent will only have nine players we can allow for our JV boys who are not suiting varsity to still have four tickets. I understand that this is not ideal but it seems better than waiting to see if the boys will play Center.
Below is the times and how to watch the game this week: Thursday is only Varsity Girls and we get two tickets Thursday JH Boys vs. Alamosa • 7th Grade 4:30pm • 8th Grade 6:00pm • How to watch: Sanford Events - YouTube Thursday 2-25 Varsity Girls @ South Park • Varsity Girls @ South Park 4:30 • Two tickets per participant • How to watch: https://www.facebook.com/pcsdre2 Friday 2-26 JV Girls, Varsity Girls and Boys • JV Girls 4:00pm • Varsity Girls 5:45 • Varsity Boys 7:45 • How to watch: Sanford Events - YouTube Saturday 2-27 • JV Girls, JV Boys, Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys @ Centauri o JV Boys & Varsity Girls 4:00pm o JV Girls & Varsity Boys 6:00pm • How to watch: https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/search?query=centauri
