A Message from Our Director

September 16, 2020

Dear Union Colony Family,

This Sunday, September 13, I published this update informing you that we completed three full weeks of in-person learning. Two school days later, we’re quarantining. At least we completed 17 days of instruction before a quarantine. Hopefully this is a short one and we’re back together next week.

Tuesday afternoon, September 15, we learned that two individuals at our school have exhibited a major and a minor COVID symptom for more than 24 hours, or have been exposed to a positive case. The individuals who are considered to be at high risk of exposure are being asked to quarantine for 14 days.

One case has already been tested and we are awaiting results. The second is scheduled for a COVID test and we should have results before next week. If the results are negative, students will return to school Monday, September 21. We will communicate exactly when 7th-11th grade students are to return to school physically.

The exposure is limited to two grades or cohorts, but high school teachers teach many different grade levels. Therefore, following recommended quarantine procedures, grades 7-11 will begin remote learning Thursday, September 17. Please click here if you need a device for remote learning.

Per guidance from the Weld County Department of Public Health, the unaffected cohorts are not at high risk for exposure and will be able to continue their classes. Grades K-6 and 12 will continue to report to school as they have been. Grades 7-11 DO NOT report to school until further notice.

We appreciate your continued cooperation as we move forward to safely serve our students. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Sincerely,

Jim Anderson

Jim Anderson
Director
