Nos ha llamado la atención que un miembro del personal de la escuela Steen ha dado positivo por COVID-19. Después de consultar con el Departamento de Salud, cancelaremos toda la instrucción presencial durante las próximas dos semanas en todas las Escuelas Públicas de Bogotá. Todos los estudiantes aprenderán virtualmente y todas las actividades y deportes serán cancelados durante las próximas dos semanas. Esta decisión no fue fácil, pero es la más segura para nuestros estudiantes y personal.
 Nuestro plan es reabrir el 9 de noviembre. Las comidas para llevar estarán disponibles en la
escuela secundaria todos los días entre las 10:30 am y la 1 pm.
El distrito y el departamento de salud local han estado en estrecha coordinación. Los equipos de rastreo de contactos a través del departamento de salud se comunicarán directamente con los estudiantes, el personal y los miembros de la comunidad que puedan haber estado en contacto con la persona de la comunidad escolar que dio positivo en la prueba de COVID-19.
