9-R COVID-19 Weekly Summary - 3.5.21

The COVID-19 dial in the community continues to sit in Yellow, which means there is moderate risk for transmission in our community. While we have had quarantines occurring since students came back in January, transmission rates are primarily occurring outside of school as staff and students continue to practice the right behaviors to limit the spread of the virus in our schools.

This past week we have seen quite a bit of movement in our schools around quarantines, requiring a total of 18 cohorts to go into quarantine (at the time of this report).

Cohorts to Quarantine - 3.3.21

On March 3, 2021, 9-R was notified by San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) that individuals across Durango High School, Miller Middle School, and Needham Elementary, as well as individuals in Track at DHS and individuals in Basketball at Miller Middle School and Escalante Middle School, were in close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, causing nine (9) cohorts to quarantine. The school and the district are working proactively with the SJBPH to make the appropriate notifications and next steps for those who may have been in close contact with this individual.

On February 28 and March 2, 2021 respectively, 9-R was notified by San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) that a cohort went into quarantine from Park Elementary due to a positive case of COVID-19. Additionally, a cohort had to quarantine at Fort Lewis Mesa Elementary due to an individual exhibiting severe symptoms of COVID-19. A. The school and the district are working proactively with the SJBPH to make the appropriate notifications and next steps for those who may have been in close contact with this individual.

9-R Weekly COVID Response Summary - 2.26.21

This week our community continues to remain in yellow on the COVID-19 dial for our region. These fluctuations are the reason the district will not move on its Return to In-Person Learning Matrix until 14 days of steady community transmission rates, as well as personnel availability remains stable.

For this week of February 22, 2021, seven (7) cohorts, six (6) at Durango High School and one (1) at Park Elementary, were put into quarantine.
