Covid Action Plan

Faithful To The Mission

We do not know the future yet, we take heart in The One who does. Although the world feels shaky and unpredictable, we trust Our God, who holds this world and our lives together. USCO is committed to the health of our students, faculty and staff, as well as to the health of our school and our continued mission to ignite a passion for Jesus in students. As we forge ahead, here are the plans we are working on to return to campus safely.  We will periodically update these as the CDC provides more research and guidelines. We cannot wait to see you all on campus!


Given the current mandate from the State of Colorado, the USCO administration and school board have been working to create a plan that is within the guidelines of this mandate.  Please keep in mind that as regulations change and the number of infections increase (or decrease) the plan may require updating and/or revisions.  Having worked through six (6) weeks of distance learning at the close of the 2019-2020 school year, we are committed to doing what we can to ensure on-campus, in-person learning for as long as possible and request parent and student cooperation and patience with this plan.

Safety + Health Precautions

(Reference:  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), El Paso County Health Department and Colorado State guidelines)

Reduction of viral exposure by the following:

  • Desks cleaned regularly between periods
  • Hand sanitizer available to be utilized between classes
  • Teachers arrive no later than 8:00 am to allow time for health check
  • Quarantine rooms for sick students while awaiting pick up
  • Temporary shutdown of campus/classes if hotspots occur
  • As per the Governor’s Executive Order D 2020 138 issued July 16, 2020, masks are required in buildings for all persons over the age of 10 years (K4-5th grade are exempt from this requirement)
