EPSD COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Plan
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a statement advising communities to prepare for a domestic outbreak of COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus.
For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19, visit the Larimer County Health Department website or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Estes Park School District is working closely with local, state and national health officials to monitor the coronavirus health issue and will provide district related communication for families as it becomes available.
The district is utilizing their specific coronavirus response plan and communicating accordingly to our families, staff and community. This work is being done collaboratively with district staff representing health, facilities, safety/security, and more.
EPSD will continue to follow the Larimer County Health Department’s lead on operations for quarantines, closures, or other health measures needed. Our focus is ensuring the safety of students and staff, and working with a plan for education to continue if any of those situations should arise.
Parents and guardians can help prevent illness by continuing with the same critical practices – for themselves and with their children – as one would during flu season.
- Wash hands often with soap and water
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects
- Keep kids home if they are sick. Please notify your school if your child is sick and needs to stay home. If possible, please share their symptoms and if they have a positive influenza diagnosis.
More information is available on the Larimer County Health Department website.
