High School Weekly Update
From Co-Principals Ruby Bode & Chuck Scott
January 29, 2021
Dear EPHS Family,
Thank you to our staff and students for your commitment to following all the covid protocols to keep our building clean, and keep each other healthy!
A special thank you to our kitchen and custodial staff. Our custodial staff is working hard to keep our school and bathrooms sanitized, and our school looks great! Our kitchen staff is working hard to make free grab 'n' go lunches for our whole school every day.
Another special thank you to our District Nurse, Theresa Oja! Mrs. Oja makes sure we are all up-to-date on the current guidelines and leads us in contact tracing positive cases of COVID-19. She works so hard to make sure we keep the virus out of our school. Thank you Mrs. Oja!
There is School Monday!
Quarantine Guidelines for Students
Based on the guidance and recommendations from the Colorado Department of Education, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment and Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, we do not let any student or staff with symptoms of COVID 19 attend EPHS.
COVID 19 symptoms include:
- Loss of taste or smell
Feeling feverish, having chills, temperature of 100.4 degrees F or greater
New or worsening cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Runny nose or congestion
Muscle or body aches
In accordance with this guidance:
Any student with a critical symptom/s must stay at home for 10 days and be fever free to return to school,
Any student with major symptoms that last longer than 24 hours must have a negative test result or must stay home for 10 days AND be symptom free to return to school,
Any student with minor symptoms that last longer than 48 hours must have a negative test result or must stay home for 10 days AND be symptom free to return to school.
If a student has symptoms of COVID19, they will need a negative COVID19 test result to return to school when symptom free OR remain out for the 10 day isolation period and can return when they are symptom free for 24 hours. Thank you for your support as we work to keep everyone safe and healthy at school. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the front office at 970-586-5321.
Farewell Mrs. Rains
We are sad this week to say goodbye to our school counselor, Mrs. Heather Rains. She is moving to California to provide care for her beloved family members. Mrs. Rains has been an incredible addition to our high school staff, and we are grateful for her services this year. She is loved and she will be missed.
If your last name ends in A-K, and Mrs. Rains was your assigned counselor, you can contact Mr. Loeffler, firstname.lastname@example.org
No Days Are Snow Days
No problem! We are able to learn remotely when we are at home. For the remainder of the year, instead of cancelling school due to the snow, we will be learning online in Cloud School.
Holocaust Remembrance Day January 27
The commemoration day was designated to remember the 6 million victims of the Holocaust, and promote Holocaust education throughout the world to prevent future genocide and promote universal human rights. Global Awareness and Compassion is one of the Global Outcomes we value for our students.

Too Much Screen Time?
Athletics are underway and our teams are showing a lot of success! We have had several wins from our wrestlers and basketball teams this week and look forward to our upcoming contests this week. Best wishes to our swimmers, wrestlers, and basketball players! We are live-streaming all the events, so look for the links being sent from our office so you can watch our athletes compete. Athletic Director, Chuck Scott, will be providing information on a weekly basis about whether or not each event it hosting spectators.
