As student and staff health and wellness is our top priority, Summit School District works closely with our local public health partners all year. SSD follows health protocols, recommendations, and direction from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Safety (CDPHE) and Summit County Public Health (SCPH), and we would like to remind families to be vigilant keeping yourself and others healthy.
You can help keep our schools healthy by following the guidelines below. The same precautions recommended for avoiding colds and flu can help protect yourself and others against coronavirus:
- A face covering is required of everyone in school buildings.
- Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing (Spanish).
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Avoid close contact with anyone with COVID, cold or flu-like symptoms.
- Stay home if you are sick. Follow the "When a student should stay home from school" guidelines below for when to keep a sick child home. If you need to keep your child home due to illness, please report that the absence is due to illness and remember the importance of keeping your child at home until they are free of symptoms for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.
