COVID-19: Important NMDOH Letter to the nex+Gen Community

Del Norte High School is working with the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) in investigating a case of COVID-19 in a student of the school. Some of the students and staff may have been exposed.

Out of an abundance of precaution we are sharing this notification with you because some of our nex+gen students attend classes on the Del Norte High campus.

Illness seems to be very mild in young people, but more severe in adults over 60 years of age, or those with underlying conditions.

It is possible that exposure could have occurred on March 4, March 5, March 6, March 9, or March 10 when the confirmed case attended school.

NMDOH is recommending all students and staff who spent time on the Del Norte campus on dates mentioned above, self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for up to 14 days from their last exposure. If any student potentially exposed to COVID-19 begins to develop symptoms (fever and/or cough or shortness of breath), NMDOH needs to be notified. Call the NMDOH on-call epidemiologist (24/7/365) at (505)-855.600.3453 so that they can collect your demographic information and track the progress of your evaluation and COVID-19 testing. All information provided to NMDOH remains confidential. This is an important step to aid NMDOH in preventing transmission in the community.

Additionally, the NMDOH will have a clinic on Sunday, March 22 at the Public Health Office in Midtown Albuquerque, where exposed students can get an appointment to be tested for COVID-19 if they are symptomatic. To be seen at this clinic please call 505-235-1564 during the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 21 to make an appointment to be tested on Sunday, March 22.

If you or your child begin to develop symptoms and need to see a healthcare provider, please contact the healthcare provider to arrange an evaluation. It is important that you call ahead to your healthcare provider before presenting to the physician office, clinic, urgent care or emergency room so that they can be prepared for your arrival. Some physician offices and clinics may be unprepared for testing a patient for COVID-19 and may not have the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) or testing supplies. Your healthcare provider may direct you to another facility or location that is more suitably equipped to conduct COVID-19 testing and evaluation.

You can call NMDOH at  505.855.600.3453  if you are not in need of medical attention, but have questions beyond what has been explained in this letter. Thank you for your support in these efforts.

Sincerely,
David Lynch
Principal

About Our School

Established in 2010, Nex+Gen Academy is a small community school with a capacity of 400 students in grades 9–12 and a unique culture of trust, respect, and responsibility. We are located on the Del Norte High School campus and are open to all students interested in project-based learning and collaboration. We're a proven and successful small school model.

It is our mission “To create a community where learning and global citizenship are cultivated to develop future leaders.”  In order to lead in the modern age, our students must emerge from school knowledgeable in the core content areas and the arts, but they must also act as curious individuals, who can communicate well, collaborate effectively, and take initiative to get things done. For that reason, we formally teach, assess, and grade students against a set of skills that we believe are imperative for their success.  Namely, we focus on content knowledge, agency, collaboration, communication, and inquiry & analysis.
