If you have driven by Parish Park today, you might have noticed that the playground is taped off and that dirt mounds are everywhere. **Parish Park playground will be closed for the next 2-3 weeks** for crews to replace the swing set and the wood chip bedding with a safer and more reliable rubber bedding called Pour-In-Place.
The park itself will remain open, only the playground is closed. We will continue to post updates here and on our website.
For more information, and details regarding Pour-in-Place under playgrounds, check this link out: https://townofjohnstown.com/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=573
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – Symptoms
COVID-19 School Outbreak at Pioneer Ridge Elementary School:
Dear Parents and Community members,
The following information went out to the entire Pioneer Ridge Elementary School families and staff. Pioneer Ridge Elementary will be fully closed until October 12, 2020. Please read the email for more details:
Pioneer Ridge Elementary School has been designated by the new guidelines presented by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment as a school outbreak for COVID-19. Last night and early this morning, we received multiple positive tests from families, students and staff that affect every child and staff member that attends Pioneer Ridge Elementary. Therefore, the entire Pioneer Ridge Elementary school will be quarantined until October 12, 2020. This includes extending the kindergarten quarantine to October 12, 2020 as well.
Since your child was in close contact with a student or staff member who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, they must remain in quarantine. Each case of COVID-19 is interviewed by public health and, as part of this public health investigation:
The people diagnosed are being kept home from school until they are no longer infectious.
The person’s mask use, social distancing, and activities while infectious were assessed.
The people who were close contacts of the person with COVID-19 are instructed to stay home from school. This is called quarantine.
During this time, your child should stay home and not go to other schools, activities, childcares, sports or other activities around other people. If you have children in other classes at other schools, they can still go to school unless their sibling gets sick or tests positive for COVID-19. Instructions about how to quarantine are available here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/how-to-quarantine#
If your child develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (https://www.cdc.gov/…/2019-n…/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html):
Follow these isolation instructions (https://covid19.colorado.gov/how-to-isolate)
Have your child tested (https://search.211colorado.org/search…)
Continue to keep your child home from school and avoid other activities around other people.
Notify the school.
Seek medical care and testing for COVID-19, calling your doctor before you show up.
Public Health may recommend and will let you know directly or you may choose to have your child tested for COVID-19 a week after they were around the person with COVID-19, even if your child does not have symptoms. A negative test result does not mean that your child will not develop symptoms or become sick after the test. A negative test result means that your child did not have COVID-19 detected at the time of testing. A negative test will not allow your child to come back to school or attend other activities sooner. Medical insurance may not cover the cost of testing for people without symptoms.
Under the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act (“HFWA”), (https://cdle.colorado.gov/interpretive-notice-formal-opinio…), an employer must provide paid leave to an employee under certain conditions, including taking care of someone else due to COVID-19 precautions, including a child whose school, place of care, or child care is closed or unavailable.

Families can still pick up breakfast and lunch throughout the quarantine period at the back of the cafeteria. Breakfast can be picked up between 8 AM and 9 AM and lunch between 11 AM and 12:30 PM each day. If you will be entering the building, please wear a mask. Thank you.
COVID-19 has a wide range of symptoms. The Self-Checker is a guide to help make decisions on when to seek testing and appropriate medical care.
