What is Valor Christian High School Doing?
Since the beginning of the outbreak, Valor Christian High School has been collaborating with our public health partners. The school has an infectious disease preparedness plan and we work in coordination with these agencies to ensure the continuity of learning throughout any such situation.
It is important to know that during a major outbreak, we would follow the health department’s lead on any quarantines, closures, or other health measures needed. Our focus has been on how to ensure the safety of students and staff, and how education can continue. Valor is putting a plan in place for how to continue classroom learning remotely through various electronic systems, should the situation reach that point.
We have received a number of questions regarding students or families who have recently traveled internationally, or who are preparing to travel internationally over the upcoming break. As you may know, protocols have been put in place to evaluate and, in some cases, quarantine passengers as they return from their travels. Please closely monitor all travel bans and travel restrictions, both internationally and domestically, from the CDC. Additionally, anyone who spent time in Eagle, Summit, Pitkin or Gunnison counties in the past week should minimize all contact with other people, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms.
We are already making arrangements with our facilities team to have additional supplies of soap and hand-sanitizer made available across our campus when students return.
