  • After discussion at the regularly held North Conejos School District RE-1J Board of Education meeting, it was decided to alter the scheduled opening of the new CHS Building to the following schedule:

    • Students will move into the new school building as originally planned, on Monday, March 28th.  A small ceremony (for students only) will be held, and a brief time for general student tours will occur, and staff will help students immediately acclimate to the new building.  School will then proceed as normal.
    • A full ribbon cutting/opening ceremony and celebration, and public tours, will be held to coincide with the Centauri High School and North Conejos Alternative Graduation on May 27th and 28th.  Details for the entire community, alumni and other interested individuals will be forthcoming.
    • In the coming weeks, the public will be able to say goodbye to the old CHS; the time and date will be announced, allowing interested parties to plan to attend.  Items and equipment from the old CHS will first be offered to other district schools who could utilize such.  Then, items and equipment available for community purchase/bid will be announced ahead of time in a transparent and fair manner to the entire public as appropriate, allowing inspectors to first ensure any and all items are allowable, and safe, to be offered to the public at large.

  • North Conejos School District COVID Policy

    Elements of a routine disease control model for COVID-19 in K-12 settings

    Routine disease control strategies:

    • Continue to encourage vaccination of staff and students
    • Follow isolation requirements for students and staff who are ill or have tested positive for COVID-19.
    • Continue to recommend transmission prevention strategies, including testing and masking for staff and students following illness and exposures.
    • Continue to support regular mask use by staff and students, even when not required by local public health orders (Conejos DOES NOT have masking orders).
    • CDC continues to recommend universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status and at all transmission levels.
    • Respond to clusters of cases (including increases in respiratory illness) and confirmed outbreaks as described below.
    • *Continue to report identified cases and outbreaks to public health as required by Colorado Statute and Regulation (6 CCR 1009-1).
    • In lieu of individual case investigation and contact tracing, implement new cluster or outbreak detection strategies including public health reporting of school absenteeism data and participation in wastewater surveillance.  CDPHE is exploring funding mechanisms to support this work.

    Strategies not continued in routine disease control model (unless a cluster or outbreak is detected):

    • Individual case investigation and contact tracing.
    • Quarantine of students and staff with school-associated exposures. Given the much greater risk of household exposures compared to non-household exposures, schools should continue to follow quarantine guidance for students and staff who report household exposures.


    *In consultation with Conejos County Public Health, the North Conejos School District will discontinue quarantines for staff and students with non-household community exposures.
