Jeffco's Fall 2021 Health Protocols


Jeffco Public Schools is strongly encouraging, but not requiring, staff and students to get the COVID-19 vaccination. Those who are fully vaccinated (14 days from their last dose) will not need to be quarantined if exposed. JCPH-hosted vaccine locations can be found here and throughout our county.

Masks are required for students ages 3-11 (generally grades PK-6), unless the student is fully vaccinated (currently eligible to receive a vaccine at age 12 or older).

For students age 12 and above (generally 7th through 12th grade), masks indoors are strongly recommended for unvaccinated students, and recommended for vaccinated students in alignment with the guidance from JCPH.

Staff are required to notify the district of their vaccination status by August 16. Masks are required for unvaccinated staff and recommended for vaccinated staff.

Masks are required for all individuals on school buses under federal order.

Masks are required for all visitors and volunteers in school buildings regardless of vaccination status.

We will continue frequent hand washing and cleaning.

Individuals are encouraged to remain at least 3 feet away from non-household contacts when possible.
Continue to self-monitor using our self-screening tool. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay home.

When outbreaks occur, Jeffco Public Schools will work with JCPH to determine the appropriate response. This could include masks indoors, additional distancing, testing, contact tracing, and quarantining.

Jeffco Public Schools encourages use of outdoor spaces and fresh air ventilation, such as opening windows and use of box fans. We have made significant improvement over the past year and continuing through this year on our building ventilation systems. More information is available here.
