Dear Platte Valley Community,
As you have probably seen many schools and districts in Weld County have moved to hybrid or fully remote learning. This is because either they have so many positive cases that a majority of the students are quarantined, or so many staff members are out sick or quarantined that they cannot run school. So far, we have been fortunate that our positives have been rather isolated, or people have stayed home when sick so that they did not expose others. This has meant that we have been able to continue to have in-person school. Please know that this has taken great effort on everyone’s part and we have come close in a couple of situations to not having school. We are quickly approaching the holidays and colder weather; this means that there is opportunity for people to get together indoors and in larger groups. I am by no means telling what you should or should not do. I am asking that you be mindful of how many people with which you and your family are exposed to or have contact. I have had many people/parents/families express appreciation that we have continued to have in-person school. The reason we have been able to do this is because we have had relatively few positive COVID-19 cases and related quarantines.
In order to continue to have in-person school through December and into second semester of 2021, we will be asking and doing the following:
Please continue to use the following precautions:
• Screen for COVID symptoms and stay home if you have symptoms or are sick.
 If you are sick, please contact the school nurse before coming to school.
 If someone in your household is sick, please contact the school nurse before coming to school.
 If you or someone in your household is being tested for COVID-19, everyone in the household must stay home until there are results. Please contact the school nurse and send the test results to the nurse prior to returning to any district building or activity.
• Wash your hands with soap and water and if not available use hand sanitizer.
• Practice social/physical distancing.
• Use a face covering when entering buildings or gathering with others, or if you are within six feet of others.
• If you travel over the holidays, realize that you are at increased risk and please monitor for symptoms upon your return. If you find out you were exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms, please stay home, and contact the school nurse.
• We will reduce the number of people outside the school community into school and district facilities. This means outside visitors to schools or attendance by others to school functions. We still have very few positives among students but the number of positives in the wider community grows each week.
I appreciate everyone’s efforts to help us stay in school. We can continue to have in-person learning if we all follow these guidelines and do our best.
Sincerely,
E. Glenn McClain Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendent

Estimado Comunidad Platte Valley,
Como probablemente has visto muchas escuelas y distritos en el Condado de Weld se han mudado al aprendizaje híbrido o totalmente remoto. Esto se debe a que tienen tantos casos positivos que la mayoría de los estudiantes están en cuarentena, o tantos miembros del personal están enfermos o en cuarentena que no pueden dirigir la escuela. Hasta ahora, hemos tenido la suerte de que nuestros aspectos positivos han sido bastante aislados, o de que la gente se ha quedado en casa cuando está enferma para que no expongan a los demás. Esto ha significado que hemos podido seguir teniendo escuela en persona. Por favor, sepa que esto ha tomado un gran esfuerzo por parte de todos y nos hemos acercado en un par de situaciones para no tener escuela. Nos acercamos rápidamente a las vacaciones y el clima más frío; esto significa que hay oportunidad para que las personas se reúnan en interiores y en grupos más grandes. No estoy diciendo lo que debes o no debes hacer. Les pido que sean conscientes de cuántas personas con las que usted y su familia están expuestos o tienen contacto. He tenido muchas personas / padres / familias expresan agradecimiento por haber continuado teniendo en la escuela en persona. La razón por la que hemos podido hacerlo es porque hemos tenido relativamente pocos casos COVID-19 positivos y cuarentenas relacionadas.
Con el fin de seguir teniendo la escuela en persona hasta diciembre y en el segundo semestre de 2021, estaremos preguntando y haciendo lo siguiente:
Siga utilizando las siguientes precauciones:
1. Prueba los síntomas de COVID y permanece en casa si tienes síntomas o estás enfermo.
1. Si está enfermo, comuníquese con la enfermera de la escuela antes de ir a la escuela.
2. Si alguien en su hogar está enfermo, comuníquese con la enfermera de la escuela antes de venir a la escuela.
3. Si usted o alguien en su hogar está siendo evaluado para COVID-19, todos en el hogar deben permanecer en casa hasta que haya resultados. Comuníquese con la enfermera de la escuela y envíe los resultados del examen a la enfermera antes de regresar a cualquier edificio o actividad del distrito.
2. Lávese las manos con agua y jabón y, si no está disponible, use desinfectante para manos.
3. Practicar el distanciamiento social/físico.
4. Usa una cubierta facial al entrar en edificios o reunirte con otras personas, o si estás a menos de seis pies de otros.
5. Si viaja durante las vacaciones, tenga en cuenta que está en mayor riesgo y vigile los síntomas a su regreso. Si descubre que estuvo expuesto a COVID-19 o tiene síntomas, quédese en casa y comuníquese con la enfermera de la escuela.
6. Reduciremos el número de personas fuera de la comunidad escolar a las instalaciones escolares y del distrito. Esto significa que los visitantes externos a las escuelas o la asistencia de otros a las funciones escolares. Todavía tenemos muy pocos aspectos positivos entre los estudiantes, pero el número de aspectos positivos en la comunidad en general crece cada semana.
Agradezco los esfuerzos de todos para ayudarnos a permanecer en la escuela. Podemos seguir teniendo aprendizaje en persona si todos seguimos estas pautas y hacemos todo lo posible.
Sinceramente
E. Glenn McClain Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendente
