Dear TCA Community,

 

I always love this time of year; the leaves will be changing very soon, our classes are in full swing, and our activities and sports teams have begun with enthusiasm. As we bring this first month of school to a close, I wanted to provide you with an update on our progress with school related illnesses. First, we have been able to mitigate and keep COVID related school disruptions to a minimum. We are in frequent communication with the El Paso County Public Health (EPCPH) department about our requirements—which are far less than last year—and we give thanks to our community for continued adherence to our illness guidelines.

 

Moving forward, our COVID dashboard is now updated daily with active cases along with our FAQ's, which will be updated as needed with process definitions. Also, per EPCPH requirements, we will continue to exclude from school those who test positive, along with their household contacts, and we quarantine unvaccinated close contacts that are within three feet of a positive case for more than 15 minutes, in the traditional classroom setting. Per recent contact with EPCPH, we have increased attention on the last requirement, but since we have sufficient desk and seating spacing in our classrooms, we believe these quarantines will be minimal because of our small class sizes.

 

One metric to which we remain cognizant is our outbreak status. An outbreak is defined as five or more positive cases in any one classroom. To date we have had no outbreaks at TCA, but if we do reach that status, we stand at the ready to respond appropriately to health department direction.

 

TCA remains mindful of local and national media reports regarding vaccines and mask mandates. Currently, we do not expect these mandates to reach significant influence at TCA. Still, we encourage masking for those families who wish, and we encourage vaccinations for those that are able.

 

Thank you again for your flexibility, grace, and patience in working with us in this ever-changing climate. Be sure to enjoy this fall weather! Cooler temperatures are right around the corner.

 

We Are Titans!
