Dr. Jensen Shares Update on Latest COVID-19 Case - Today, we were informed of a positive COVID case of a student at Lowry High School. As the community continues to see an increase in the number of COVID cases, our schools reflect what is occurring in our community. As we continue our cleaning protocols, social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitizing, schools remain one of the safest places for our students and staff to be. These actions place us in a strong position as we prepare for the annual cold and flu season. Stay safe and thanks for all each of you do!
