COLORADO SPRINGS — Officials confirmed Monday morning someone tested positive for COVID-19 was at a D11 elementary school earlier this month.

The district said a person who tested positive was at Monroe Elementary on Sept. 8. They have notified those who were in close contact with the person on that date and said they are now in quarantine for 14 days following the exposure.

For the week, the district said in-person learning for special populations that was scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday will move to remote learning so they can disinfect and clean the school.

The district said the person with COVID-19 will be home until they are no longer infectious. Officials said other people notified them that they were not feeling well, but there are no test results for those individuals yet.

Students began the school year on Aug. 24 with a hybrid model, targeting students with the greatest academic need for levels of in-school support.
