Dear Telluride School District Families,

This is a brief update with our plans for in-person vs. remote learning next week and after Thanksgiving break.

Next week, we have a full school day Monday and a half-day Tuesday.  For both days:

  • Our PreK 3 and PreK 4 will remain in-person
  • Grades K-6 will be in remote learning mode, with some high priority groups in-person.  There will be a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning for K-6 on those days, as staff further develop test their remote learning plans.  The TES and TIS Principals will share more details for the learning in each building following this message.
  • TMHS will continue with remote learning with some prioritized groups in-person.

Earlier today, San Miguel County posted the county metrics for the two-week period from October 29 to November 12.  The Positivity Rate for that period is 4.2% and the Incidence Rate is 868.6 (per 100,000).  Because the Positivity Rate is below 5%, we will remain in our current Orange Phase of Learning after Thanksgiving, with PreK-6 in-person and TMHS in remote learning with some prioritized groups in-person.

To see the Positivity Rate and Incidence Rate on the newly revised Sam Miguel County Dashboard, go to: https://sanmiguelco.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/56e682135d1d4128bee1a0426aed1d10

We have had one more staff member test positive for COVID this week.  That staff member has been quarantining due to exposure, so this will not result in any additional quarantines of staff.

Thank you
