    COVID – COMMUNITY HEALTH UPDATE
    As of today, there are currently 6 new reported COVID-19 cases in our school community.

    We provide current active cases of COVID-19 each week in the Weekly Roundup. Each case of COVID-19 is interviewed by our school nurse.  Unless you receive individual communication about exposure to a positive case, you do not need to take any action. As part of the public health investigation:

    • The person diagnosed is being kept home from school until they are no longer infectious
    • The person’s activities when they could have spread COVID-19 were assessed
    • Per Denver Public Schools and Denver Public Health guidelines, students who are fully vaccinated and/or are wearing their mask over their mouth and nose at the time of exposure do not have to quarantine. Any students who do not meet this criteria are instructed to stay home from school for 10 days after the exposure. This is called quarantine.

     

    SCHEDULES  FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL IN JANUARY
    Tuesday, January 4 and Wednesday, January 5 will be in-person learning for students who received a failing grade in one or more classes during the first semester. The pandemic continues to present challenges for our students, and it is critical that our staff is all-hands on deck to support students with passing courses before moving into the second semester. Students who passed all of their classes will report for the first day of 2nd semester on Thursday, January 6. We will have modified bell schedules on January 6 and 7 that we will share in the next Weekly Roundup.

    SCHEDULES  DECEMBER FINALS SCHEDULE
    The December Final Exam Schedule is now available on our public calendar and a printable version is available HERE. Early final exams will only be permitted in the event of an emergency and must be approved by the principal.

    Freshmen, sophomores and juniors: If you took the PSAT 9 on October 14 or the PSAT/NMSQT on October 13, you should receive an email from College Board starting December 7 notifying you that your scores are available in your College Board account.
