Color Key:           Purple = Home Game       Gray = Away game, that requires early release from school.

Serial Testing:  The school district has decided to pause the required serial testing for students involved in athletics and activities at SHS and SMS.

  • Serial testing was an effective strategy for early detection of Covid with the Delta variant, but we have found it to be inconsistent in detecting the new Omicron variant within the first 48 hours of transmission.
  • Serial testing may be a strategy we adopt again in the future, depending on future variants.
  • Our current strategy is for students who are symptomatic to wear a mask and check in with nurse Becky at SHS or nurse Cari at SMS. This is "Day 0," the first day of symptoms. Assume this is a probable positive case.
    • If they do test positive for Covid, they are to isolate for days 1-5. Then they can return to school on day 6, and they must wear a mask on days 6-10.
    • Upon returning to school on day 6, the student needs to check in with Eddie, our athletic trainer, for their return to play protocol.
  • All students, coaches, and staff must wear a must on bus trips. This is federal regulation.
  • If a school in our district goes remote, it will be due to a staffing issue. This will be addressed on an individual school basis. If this happens, we will continue with activities and athletics as much as possible.
  • We are encouraging families to take responsibility for the health of students and to be honest about symptoms and the timing of their return. It takes all of us to keep our students in the activities they love!

NFHS Channel:  Did you know that all contest held in the Main HS Gym and in Spartan Stadium are live streamed.  What a great way for out of town relatives and fans to watch the Spartans.  I would encourage everyone to subscribe so you can have access to contest across the country.  https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/schools/salida-high-school-salida-co

92.5 The Peak:  For those wanting to listen to Salida Spartans in action, the home varsity basketball games are broadcast on 92.5 The Peak.

Finally, I want to encourage all fans to remember we cheer for the Spartans and NOT against our opponents.  BE LOUD! BE PROUD! BE POSITIVE!
