Platte Valley School District will work in conjunction with CDE and local public health with regard to illness issues. The general message is simple. If your son or daughter is well, we want your student at school! If your student is sick and not feeling well please keep him or her home. More specifically, because we have to address the issues that existed the last two years, this means:
We will not require masks. If a student or stakeholder would like to wear a mask they may do so. We continue to ask that individuals continue to be considerate of others.
We will not contact trace.
We will not prevent family households who are not sick from attending school. If a student is sick they should stay home. If a student has a temperature of 100.4 the student will be sent home. This is in accordance with historical practice so that your student can work on feeling better and we do not get other students sick.
We will follow board policy as it relates to vaccinations, exemptions, and exclusions. This includes items such as Tuberculosis, Roseola, Head Lice, Chicken Pox, etc. Please refer to Board Policy JLCC-E(1) around Communicable Diseases.
It is important to understand these expectations may change while also knowing we do not want them to change. We will continue to work to make the best of any situation.
November 1st is the deadline for making sure all students are compliant with state immunization law. Please make sure your student’s records with Platte Valley School District are updated.
If you are planning to file an exemption, there is a new process. You can no longer just sign a waiver and have your student exempted. You must either have a physician signature of counseling received orcomplete the Online Immunization Education Module in order to file an exemption. This is pursuant to the new Colorado Immunization Bill (SB20-163) that is in effect with the 2021-2022 school year.
You can drop off updated immunization records or fax them to 970-336-8635.
Thank you. Please let me know if you have any questions.
