Reopening Roadmap

Dear SES Community,

This reopening roadmap is the result of several months of research and collaboration among members of the COVID task force, the leadership team, and the Board of Trustees. Grounded in research, directives, and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Colorado Department of Education, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Association of Colorado Independent Schools and the Governor of Colorado, we have also kept our core values and mission at the forefront of our work and decisions. We are grateful for the diligence and dedication shown by so many in preparing for the 2020–2021 school year.

The strategies, plans, and protocols below represent the most current research and have been reviewed by our nurse at Children’s Hospital. As the pandemic continues to unfold, we will continue to update our approaches to health and safety and we will keep you informed of those updates. Our community’s commitment to the health and safety practices in our roadmap not only safeguards the SES community, but helps us do our part in protecting the well-being of our broader community as well.

This document shares SES’s plans for reopening school safely for students and faculty/staff, how the school will maintain wellness within the community, and the role that our community will play moving forward.
