RFSD closes Basalt Elementary Early Childhood Center due to confirmed COVID cases

Two staff members at the Basalt Elementary Early Childhood Center tested positive with Covid over the weekend, and another staff member is exhibiting Covid symptoms. Because of this situation, the Basalt Elementary Early Childhood Center will be short-staffed and will temporarily close until September 28 during the 14-day quarantine period.

“We understand this closure puts families in a difficult situation, and we apologize for the inconvenience,” said Early Childhood Director Cindy Gray. 

The Roaring Fork Schools are working closely with Public Health and have contacted all students and staff who had close contact with those individuals. The district cannot divulge names to protect patient confidentiality.
