Updated Guidance for the 2021-22 School Year Coming Soon
CDE and CDPHE, using new guidance recently published by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, are working to provide update resources for schools and districts to use as they prepare for the upcoming school year.
The toolkit is anticipated to be ready in early August.
For now, please find the resources from last year for review purposes.
This is alternate text for the Continuum of Screening graphic.
- HOME is the first point on the screening continuum.
LEAs should educate and support families on identifying the symptoms that indicate staff and students must stay at home. Families should be encouraged to self-report symptoms of illness, including: Fever, new onset of cough, etc. Self-reporting mechanisms could include: calling the school, calling health care provider, etc.
- TRANSPORTATION is the second point on the screening continuum.
LEAs should use clearly visible signage to communicate the symptoms students should NOT have if traveling on a school bus.
- SCHOOL is the final point on the screening continuum.
Schools may conduct additional symptom evaluation for students and staff who were unable to complete screening before arrival to school, appear ill, or complain of symptoms of COVID-19.
