WPS Parents/Guardians. An individual in Mrs. Jones’ 2nd grade classroom has tested positive for COVID. We will institute our testing protocols.

Call the school office with any questions: 719-254-7681.
WPS First Grade parents/guardians. Due to the recent isolation of a first grade class, the performance scheduled for tomorrow, Jan 20, 2022 has been cancelled.
Washington Primary School Parents/Guardians. We have been notified of a number of individuals who have tested positive for COVID in one of our classrooms. While current protocols allow us to initiate a routine testing protocol we have chosen to be more restrictive in this particular case in order to minimize the potential for further spread. The current number of positive cases is not considered to be an “outbreak” as defined by Colorado/Local health department guidelines. However, we are acting out of an abundance of caution and are asking students from Mrs. Case’s first grade classroom to isolate and work remotely through the end of this week. They will return to in-person learning on Monday, January 24, 2022.
