Staying Healthy While Dealing With Coronavirus 

March 11, 2020

To Our Mile High 360 Community,

In an effort to ensure our community of students and families are prepared for the possible

spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are monitoring recommendations and alerts

from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). As the

CDC emphasized, there is not currently a coronavirus pandemic in the United States, however,

given how quickly the situation is evolving, we are evaluating the situation daily to ensure

the safety of all of our students, mentors, and staff.  

Education is the key.

We urge that parents, mentors, staff, and students stay informed about the virus, how it spreads, how

to identify symptoms, and recommended actions so we can all do our part to prevent the virus

from spreading.  

Recommendations for prevention in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and

World Health Organization (WHO) are -  

§  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going

to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. (If

soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at

least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.)

§  Stay home when you are sick. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek

medical attention and call in advance.

§  Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

§  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

§  Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

§  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household

cleaning spray or wipes.  

When talking to students about the outbreak, try to stay calm, and reassure them that they are

safe. Here is a great resource for children -

Important Note**** We ask that any students, staff, or mentors who are sick or

showing flu-like symptoms to stay home.  

We will update parents and schools if any schedule changes occur as we monitor

this situation.
