COVID-19

Please click here for all communication from Superintendent John Pandolfo including start of school plans.

  • Microgen will continue community testing at several locations in San Miguel County, including on Tuesdays from 7:00am-12:00pm at the west entrance of TMHS by Butcher Creek.  To sign up for Tuesday testing, or to see other SMC testing locations and times, go to: https://www.freecovidtestingsanmiguelcounty.com/
  • We will continue to have BinaxNow Rapid Antigen Tests available at school for symptomatic students and staff.  In addition, anyone can sign up to receive in CDPHE’s Rapid At-Home program, where you can have BinaxNow Rapid Antigen Tests delivered to your home so you have them available if anyone in the house is symptomatic.  For more information in ordering At-Home tests, please go to https://covid19.colorado.gov/covid-19-testing-at-home
  • We also have some Rapid At-Home kits in our school offices, so please contact your school office if you would like one.

Please understand that a negative rapid test by itself does not mean a symptomatic person can return to school, as rapid tests are antigen tests and not PCR tests.  See the CDPHE Return to Learn flowchart for more details (http://p2cdn4static.sharpschool.com/UserFiles/Servers/Server_4072017/File/COVID/2021-2022/Return%20to%20Learn%20July%202021.pdf), and please contact your school nurse with any questions.

Microgen continuará las pruebas comunitarias en varios lugares en el Condado de San Miguel, incluyendo los martes de 7:00am-12:00pm en la entrada oeste de TMHS por Butcher Creek.  Para inscribirse en las pruebas de los martes, o para ver otros lugares y horarios de las pruebas de SMC, vaya a: https://www.freecovidtestingsanmiguelcounty.com/.

Seguiremos teniendo pruebas rápidas de antígeno BinaxNow disponibles en la escuela para estudiantes y personal sintomáticos.  Además, cualquier persona puede inscribirse para recibir en el programa Rápido en Casa del CDPHE, donde puede tener las Pruebas Rápidas de Antígeno BinaxNow entregadas en su casa para tenerlas disponibles si alguien en la casa es sintomático.  Para obtener más información sobre cómo solicitar las pruebas a domicilio, visite https://covid19.colorado.gov/covid-19-testing-at-home 

También tenemos algunos kits rápidos para el hogar en nuestras oficinas escolares, así que póngase en contacto con la oficina de su escuela si desea uno.

Por favor, comprenda que una prueba rápida negativa por sí misma no significa que una persona sintomática pueda regresar a la escuela, ya que las pruebas rápidas son pruebas de antígenos y no de PCR.  Consulte el diagrama de flujo del CDPHE sobre el regreso a la escuela para obtener más detalles (http://p2cdn4static.sharpschool.com/UserFiles/Servers/Server_4072017/File/COVID/2021-2022/Return%20to%20Learn%20July%202021.pdf), y comuníquese con la enfermera de su escuela si tiene alguna pregunta.
