Anxiety is currently high in our youth based on the climate we have been in for the last year and a half. Here is one resource that might help your student through moments of anxiety and will help them navigate through it.
For other information and support please click here and checkout CECFC's High School Social Worker Jennifer Wood's resources for mental health.
SPEAKING OF HEALTH...
Please do not send visibly ill students to school, they will be sent home.

COVID - 19 PROTOCOLS AND UPDATES
  • Face coverings are not required for students and staff; however, facemasks are recommended to be worn by unvaccinated individuals and those that feel more comfortable doing so.
  • CEC will be supportive of individuals that choose or need to wear masks. It is expected that every member of the CEC community will respect each other's decisions on these subjects.
  • We will continue to encourage hand washing and frequent cleaning of high touch areas.
  • Increased ventilation and use of outdoor spaces will be implemented whenever possible.
  • Any staff or students experiencing symptoms should stay home, this is the most important practice to limit quarantines of students and staff this year. CECFC will follow CDPHE’s updated Return to Learn guidance for determining when students and staff can return to school. Students who are home sick can still access their classes through Microsoft Teams or the community college portal. Students should check course syllabi for requirements regarding absences in each of their courses.
  • Information on the number of positive/probable cases among staff and students will be provided in the weekly newsletter. If your student is in class with a positive/probable case you will be contacted by the school so you are aware of the exposure.
  • CEC’s virtual program is available for any students wishing to learn remotely this year. More information can be found here: CECFC Online Learning
