Welcome to Telluride School District R-1
"Through quality education, our students will achieve personal success." 

January 17, 2021

Dear TSD Families,

I hope you are all enjoying this holiday weekend, and continue to look optimistically for the light at the end of the tunnel.

Below is a table showing the results from our district testing the past two weeks:

It is important to note that these results only includes the tests we perform at school and do not include any testing done by the county or elsewhere, as we are not able to get accurate and timely data for testing other than our own.  With that said, 200-300 weekly tests are a significant portion of tests performed across the county and give us a valid picture of what the situation is in our schools.

Based on these results and the fact that the county Positivity Rate has remained relatively stable over the past week to two, we are still following the phase-in plan shared earlier:

  • Grades K-6 will remain in-person.
  • Grades 7-8 will start hybrid learning on Tuesday, January 19.
  • Grades 9-12 will start hybrid learning on Monday, January 25.

School principals will provide phase-in and operation details.

Please remember that our operation always includes the following caveats:

  • County metrics cannot spike excessively.
  • Internal metrics cannot spike excessively.
  • Quarantining may leave us without enough staff to operate safely.

This coming week, we plan to test those students who have consent forms completed in the following grades:

  • Grades PreK, K, 5, and 6 on Tuesday
  • Grades 9-12 Advisories will do drive-by testing, likely on Wednesday.

After this week we plan to move into a regular bi-weekly testing schedule.

As always, please continue to do your part by following all safety protocols:

  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • Minimize group size
  • Wear a mask, maintain 6-foot distancing, and wash hands frequently
  • Stay home, contact your provider, and get tested if you or anyone in your household is symptomatic

And pray for snow!

Sincerely,

John Pandolfo
Superintendent

Queridas familias de TSD,

Espero que todos estén disfrutando de este fin de semana de vacaciones, y continúen buscando con optimismo la luz al final del túnel.

Abajo hay una tabla que muestra los resultados de las pruebas de nuestro distrito en las últimas dos semanas:

Es importante señalar que estos resultados sólo incluyen las pruebas que realizamos en la escuela y no incluyen ninguna prueba realizada por el condado o en otro lugar, ya que no somos capaces de obtener datos precisos y oportunos para las pruebas que no sean los nuestros.  Dicho esto, 200-300 pruebas semanales son una parte significativa de las pruebas realizadas en todo el condado y nos dan una imagen válida de la situación en nuestras escuelas.

Basándonos en estos resultados y en el hecho de que el índice de positividad del condado se ha mantenido relativamente estable durante la última semana a dos, seguimos el plan de introducción compartido anteriormente:

  • Los grados K-6 permanecerán en persona.
  • Los grados 7 y 8 comenzarán el aprendizaje híbrido el martes 19 de enero.
  • Los grados 9-12 comenzarán el aprendizaje de los híbridos el lunes 25 de enero.

Los directores de las escuelas proporcionarán los detalles de la fase de introducción y de la operación.

Por favor, recuerden que nuestra operación siempre incluye las siguientes advertencias:

  • Las medidas del condado no pueden aumentar excesivamente.
  • Las medidas internas no pueden aumentar excesivamente.
  • La cuarentena puede dejarnos sin suficiente personal para operar con seguridad.

La semana que viene, planeamos hacer pruebas a los estudiantes que tengan los formularios de consentimiento completados en los siguientes grados:

  • Grados PreK, K, 5 y 6 el martes.
  • Los asesores de los grados 9-12 harán pruebas de conducción, probablemente el miércoles.

Después de esta semana planeamos pasar a un programa de pruebas quincenal.

Como siempre, por favor continúen haciendo su parte siguiendo todos los protocolos de seguridad:

  • Evitar viajes innecesarios
  • Minimizar el tamaño del grupo
  • Usar una máscara, mantener una distancia de 1,80 m y lavarse las manos con frecuencia.
  • Quédese en casa, contacte a su proveedor y hágase la prueba si usted o alguien en su casa es sintomático.

¡Y reza por la nieve!
