TikTok Challenge/Trend

      Comments Off on TikTok Challenge/Trend

We have been made aware of another nation-wide trend, where students post a threat regarding gun violence in schools on social media. There are no direct or indirect threats towards any of our schools or students at this time. We believe it originated with TikTok, but it has been seen on Instagram and Facebook as well. Specifically, the viral threat focuses on a shooting at a school on Friday, December 17.

We would like to reassure everyone at this time that there are no reported threats to or in any of the schools in the Huerfano School District Re-1

If you know of any specific threats or witness any suspicious activity, please reach out to the Huerfano County Sheriff’s Department at 719-738-1044, or school administration immediately. You can also use the Safe-2-Tell hotline 1-877-542-7233.

Mask Recommendation update – 9/10/2021

      Comments Off on Mask Recommendation update – 9/10/2021

9/10/21

To:  All families of students in the Huerfano Re-1 School District and school based employees

Short of issuing a mask mandate, I urge you to send your child to school each day with a mask to wear. Staff members are also being urged to wear masks on a daily basis.

If you do not have masks for your child, we have them available in the school offices and at temperature check in stations.

Due to our most recent Covid “outbreak” determination at John Mall HS and increasing numbers of positive cases in our community, it is wise to try to prevent any further spread of positive cases and attempt to avoid any further “outbreaks” at either John Mall HS or Peakview Elementary. We all need to do our best to keep your children in the in-person learning mode, athletics and extracurricular activities.

I understand we have families on each end and in the middle of the mask wearing and vaccination debate. I can also appreciate personal choice. I understand nothing is guaranteed to prevent one from becoming Covid positive yet we can still all opt in to try to minimize the risks to our students, teachers and community members by practicing the recommended mitigations from the CDC and local health department:

  1. Get vaccinated
  2. Get tested at school or other testing sites in town
  3. Wear masks in indoor areas of congregate settings
  4. If quarantined: please follow quarantine guidelines and quarantine
  5. Social Distance
  6. Wash hands thoroughly and often
  7. Stay home if you are ill
  8. Other

Thank you for understanding and making the effort to help minimize the risk of exposure and positive results.

Respectfully,

Michael J Moore/SuperintendentMask Recommendation Update Letter - 9/10/2021 Mask recommendation 9-10-21
