COVID UPDATE:

It is our priority to keep you informed of incidents related to safety. We want to make you aware that this week, we have 3 students or staff members that have been diagnosed with COVID-19. We have notified those people who were in close contact with these individuals.

Each case of COVID-19 is interviewed by public health. As part of this public health investigation:

  • The people diagnosed are being kept home from school until they are no longer infectious. 
  • The people’s activities when they could have spread COVID-19 were assessed. 

If you have any concerns about your health, we encourage you to contact the Denver Health School Based Health Center at 303-602-8958 (or your primary care provider) for further evaluation and possible testing.
