Update on COVID-19

We are working closely with the Douglas County School District (DCSD) in regards to providing information about the COVID-19 virus. We also closely follow all recommendations from the Colorado Department of Health with regard to student and staff safety.

We recommend all families familiarize themselves with the information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to avoid confusion. Additionally, Tri-County Health has set up a webpage for residents of Douglas County with helpful information from a local level.

Check out this article from Children's Hospital about COVID-19

Additionally, stay up-to-date with the latest DCSD news about COVID-19 by visiting dcsdk12.org/coronavirus . Should DCSD call for schools to be on a virtual or remote learning, we will provide additional information for families at that time.
