SHOULD MY CHILD GO TO SCHOOL?

During Colorado’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, children and staff who have been exposed to a positive case or who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 listed below, must follow the Guidance for Cases and Outbreaks in Child Care and Schools. 

Families across the District, our County and our State are adapting to the evolving changes in daily life caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Your families health is of the utmost importance and with all the stressors of the times of 2020, our country is faced with helping their families adjust to the new normal.

DEFINITION OF SCHOOL NURSING

School nursing, a specialized practice of public health nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates normal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders that bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potentials. NASN, 2016.
