New COVID Decision Tree
The COVID Decision Tree has been recently updated HERE. There are a couple significant changes:
1. Under the old guidance, an individual who received a negative COVID test had to wait 72 hours after symptoms improved to return to work. Under the new guidance, an individual who received a negative COVID test needs to wait 24 hours after symptoms have improved to return to school.
2. The COVID Decision Tree still applies even if an individual has received the COVID vaccine.
Families, please keep us informed about the following:
If you notice any symptoms, please keep your child at home. Notify the school immediately.
If you have taken a test and it is positive, please inform the school immediately.
If you have taken a test and are awaiting the results, please keep your child at home until you receive the results.

What is the PTA?
The PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association, where parents and teachers work together to support activities for the students. This year the group is working on providing Bobier Spirit wear sales, providing student incentive chains and charms to recognize the work of all of our Broncos, and are also looking into bringing an art program to Bobier that will be available to Virtual and Classic students alike. This is a hard working group that is elected every year and is always looking to grow! Please see the following information to find out how you can become involved. We would love to have you!
