From Head of School, Lacey Scadden
Attendance is very important to the success of CEC students. While we appreciate families symptom screening at home, we want to send you this reminder from the CDC.
Symptom screening will identify only that a person might be sick, not that the person necessarily has COVID-19. There is no symptom or set of symptoms that occurs only in children diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Many symptoms of COVID-19 are also symptoms of common illnesses like cold and flu. For example, fever and cough are the most common symptoms reported in children with COVID-19 and are present with many infections. The overlap between symptoms of COVID-19 and other common infectious illnesses means that some people with COVID-19 symptoms could have something else. This could be true even more often in young children because they typically have multiple viral illnesses each year.

  • Students with chronic conditions like asthma or allergies might have symptoms such as cough or nasal congestion without having an infectious illness. Children with other chronic illnesses such as those that affect the stomach or intestines (e.g., Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome) might also experience symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea that can be confused with symptoms of COVID-19. For many students with chronic medical conditions, symptoms might reoccur frequently throughout the year.

  • Because many COVID-19 symptoms are present in other illnesses, symptom screenings have the potential to exclude students from school repeatedly even though they do not have COVID-19 or another contagious illness, particularly when those screenings evaluate for multiple or all known COVID-19 symptoms.

Picking up students for appointments?
Attendance questions?

Procedure for picking up students during school hours:
Please have your child pick up a pass from Mrs LeFevre, our Attendance Monitor BEFORE class and have your child give it to the teacher whose class they will be leaving. This will minimize disruption to the teacher and the class and Mrs LeFevre will know when to pull your child from class.
For your student's safety, we will only permit people listed in your Infinite Campus Relationships to pick up your child and they will need to sign out at Reception. A note from the provider should be sent with your child the next day and handed to Mrs LeFevre if you wish the absence to be excused.
She may be reached at the Attendance Line at (970) 666-4032 or at Voicemail messages are checked throughout the day.
If your child is late or unable to make it to school, please call the attendance line (970) 666-4032 and leave a message. Please refer to the Student and Family Handbook for more detailed information.
