All fifth graders in one hundred years of school must quarantine after field trip

Fifth graders at Willow Creek Elementary in Centennial are in quarantine after seven students tested positive for COVID-19 after an overnight field trip last week.

According to a letter sent to parents Wednesday from the Tri-County Health Department, the students traveled to the Disciples Colorado Camp in Estes Park on September 29 and stayed until October 1.

According to the letter, all students of Class V will have to quarantine by October 15, and return to individual classes after the fall break on October 25.

So far, the staff members have not tested positive. However, they are working from home because they are teaching remotely, said Cherry Creek School District spokesman Abbe Smith.
