COVID-19 Update – March 13, 2020
By: Rhonda Metcalfe

The Yuma School District-1 is actively monitoring the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) situation and its impacts both locally and statewide.

Please note: We will update information on this website as official decisions are made. Any community information received from other sources should not be considered official Yuma School District information.

The situation is rapidly evolving and we continue to receive and monitor information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) as well as information from the Governor’s Office and Department of Education.

Our plan is to continue to monitor and follow current and updated orders and to focus on cleaning and disinfecting during our regularly scheduled spring break.

Currently, CHSAA has cancelled all activities, including athletic practices through April 6th, 2020.

We have been notified Yuma City Recreation activities have been cancelled through April 6th as well.

In line with these decisions, we have cancelled all before or after school facility use of buildings by the community and any before or after school district related activities, including field trips until April 6th ,2020.

We will re-evaluate these decisions as appropriate.

It is important to note that there is potential and probability for school closure. As of today, March 13, 2020, school is expected to resume Monday March 23, 2020 at the conclusion of our scheduled spring break. We will continue to work diligently behind the scenes to ensure that if closures occur, we have plans in place for meal options for our students as well as instructional plans.

We will provide updates on Monday, March 16th on this site.

Thank you for your support!
