Dear Aurora Public Schools Community,

You have likely heard that Governor Jared Polis declared a state of emergency in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Colorado. In light of this news, we wanted to provide you with additional information about how we are preparing for and monitoring COVID-19 in APS.

As we have shared with you previously, APS works closely with our local public health agencies including the Tri-County Health Department and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

What safety precautions is APS taking?
The APS Health Services Department regularly monitors illness trends in Aurora and surrounding communities while working closely with the Tri-County Health Department on increased numbers of illness and specific illness cases. School nurses continue to monitor illness trends in each building and are tracking symptoms when students are absent due to illness.

Please know that if a student shows illness symptoms at school such as fever or cough, the school nurse will send the student home. Parents and guardians should be prepared to pick up their students as quickly as possible if they receive a call from their school nurse or Health Para.

Please be assured that APS custodial, transportation and cafeteria staff have been spending additional time cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces. In addition, custodial crews will be deep cleaning every APS school during the upcoming Spring Break.

We have also continued to encourage all students and staff to adhere to the following health practices.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with the inside of your elbow or a tissue, then wash your hands.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when sick (Please follow the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s guidelines).
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Disinfect high-touch surfaces frequently.

With the upcoming Spring Break and other district-related trips, how is APS addressing travel?

  • We continue to receive questions regarding staff, students or families who are traveling internationally or to areas of the U.S. seeing a large number of COVID-19 cases. For privately scheduled international trips, please be aware that you may be asked or required by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to quarantine upon return or not be allowed to return from the country you have visited. At this time, state and local officials are not recommending quarantine or exclusion of individuals returning from countries other than China and Iran. Our public health partners are not recommending additional actions by school districts at this time. We will continue to follow the CDC's official guidelines in regard to staff, students and families returning from international travel. 
     
  • As for out-of-state district-related travel, we will be cancelling all student and staff trips through March 31. This was a difficult decision, but one that we made in the best interest of our students and staff. Please know this is a dynamic and fluid situation. We will continue to evaluate and follow up again on March 31. Families may also choose to make individual decisions based on what is best for their students.

When would APS close a school?
APS would follow the Tri-County Health Department’s lead on any specific quarantines, closures or other significant precautions. If we choose to close a school, we will inform parents and staff as quickly as possible using our normal communication channels.

What about school-sponsored events including sports and activities?
At this time, we are not cancelling school-sponsored events including sports and activities. As we shared earlier, we are encouraging students, staff and families to stay home if they are sick. In addition, we will continue to encourage frequent hand-washing and other healthy habits. We will continue to stay consistent with any guidance from the Colorado High School Activities Association

How can I talk to my child about COVID-19?
The National Association of School Psychologists has this online resource available on their website that may be helpful when talking to your child about COVID-19.

Please know that our school and district staff will continue to monitor COVID-19 and work closely with our public health partners. Our Incident Response Team meets regularly to stay updated on new information and provide guidance to our schools and sites. We will continue to provide information on important updates. Please check our website for any new information. 

The health and safety of students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for your continued support.

- Superintendent Rico Munn
