With the recent upward trend in COVID-19 exposures, some schools are going back to fully remote learning. Here is an update for New Legacy Charter School.
As of November 16, 2020, New Legacy will continue with our combination of in-person and remote learning. From a November 12, 2020 meeting with Governor Polis and the state epidemiologist, the data is showing schools are actually safer than most places. This is because of the strict requirements schools have in place with masks, social distancing, and hand washing. The state data is showing most exposures and infections are occurring in social settings, including family gatherings. Please make sure to stay safe when out with friends and family.
New Legacy will continue to follow the guidance of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and TriCounty Health Department (TCHD). We will quarantine cohorts for two weeks if exposure occurs, and we will close the school for two week if there is an outbreak. Finally, staffing can be difficult, so some type of two week closure may occur if our staffing ratios are not met.
New Legacy will continue to provide a safe place for both our Early Learning Center children and our high school students.
Together we can help prevent the spread of this illness to those in our community most at risk. Feel free to contact the school if you have questions or concerns.
