Health and well-being our priority during Coronavirus (Español)

March 05, 2020
By Sully Barrett

STRIVE Prep Families,

There have been confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States and it is anticipated to spread over the next weeks and months. As a part of Denver Public Schools, STRIVE Prep is working with the school district and health departments to monitor the situation. DPS has published an FAQ document online

If COVID-19 arrives in Denver, we have plans and processes in place to respond accordingly and prevent the spread of illness. Our goal is the safety and well-being of every student and staff member. 

There are many things you can do to minimize your risk of becoming ill with COVID-19 and other viruses:

  • Stay home if you are sick and do not drop your child off at school if they are sick
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 30 seconds or more
  • Help your child wash their hands frequently and make sure they don’t touch their face
  • Avoid touching nose, mouth, eyes with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze. Use a flexed elbow as a cover if you don’t have a kleenex
  • If exhibiting symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath), visit your local health provider
  • Disinfect surfaces frequently and use hand-sanitizer when you can’t wash your hands. 
  • Avoid close contact (6 feet) with people who are sick.
  • Be especially rigorous with these measures when you are traveling or spending time in public places.

COVID-19 is a flu-like, respiratory illness that is spread through touch, cough, sneeze and other person-to-person contact. 

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has resource information here, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has information here.

STRIVE Prep and DPS will continue to keep you updated about any impacts or next steps related to COVID-19.

If you have general questions about the virus, please call CO-Help at 303-389-1687 or 877-462-2911, or email COHELP@RMPDC.org. Answers are available in English, Spanish, Mandarin and other languages.

Estimadas familias de STRIVE Prep:

Ha habido casos confirmados de Coronavirus (COVID-19) en los Estados Unidos y se espera que se propagues próximas semanas y meses. Como parte de las Escuelas Públicas de Denver, STRIVE Prep está trabajando con el Distrito escolar y los departamentos de salud para vigilar la situación. DPS ha publicado un documento de preguntas frecuentes en línea.

Contamos planes y procesos en el caso que el COVID-19 llegue a Denver para responder debidamente y evitar la propagación de la enfermedad. Nuestro objetivo es la seguridad y bienestar de todos los estudiantes y miembros del personal. 

Hay muchas cosas que ustedes pueden hacer para minimizar el riesgo de enfermarse a causa del COVID-19 y otros virus:

  • Quédense en su casa si están enfermos y, si sus hijos están enfermos, no los lleven a la escuela.
  • lávense las manos a menudo con agua y jabón durante al menos 30 segundos o más.
  • Ayuden a sus hijos a lavarse las manos a menudo y asegúrense de que no se toquen la cara.
  • Eviten tocarse la nariz, boca y ojos con las manos sin lavarse.
  • Cúbranse la boca al toser y estornudar. Usen la parte interna del codo flexionado para cubrirse la boca si no tienen pañuelitos de papel.
  • Si manifiestan síntomas (tos, fiebre, falta de aire), vayan a ver a su proveedor médico local.
  • Desinfecten las superficies a menudo y usen desinfectantes para las manos cuando no puedan lavarse las manos. 
  • Evite el contacto (6 pies) con personas enfermas.
  • Sean especialmente estrictos con estas medidas cuando estén de viaje o pasen tiempo en lugares públicos.

COVID-19 es similar a la gripe, una enfermedad respiratoria que se propaga a través del contacto, la tos, los estornudos y otro tipo de contacto directo con personas. 

El Centro de Control de Enfermedades (CDC) tiene recursos de información aquí, y la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) tiene información aquí.

STRIVE Prep y DPS seguirán manteniéndolos al tanto acerca de cualquier impacto o los próximos pasos relacionados con el COVID-19.

Si tienen preguntas generales sobre el virus, llamen a la línea CO-Help al 303-389-1687 o al 877-462-2911, o bien envíen un correo electrónico a COHELP@RMPDC.org. Se ofrecen respuestas en inglés, español, mandarín y otros idiomas.
