Daily In-Person Checklist

  1. Complete AT HOME self screening before getting on the bus or coming to school.
  2. Face coverings for all bus riders, and students in grades 1st-5th. Facec overings are strongly encouraged for PreK and Kinder. Remember wearing a face mask reduces your child's chance of having to quarantine for close contact.
  3. Bring your backpack including water bottle, snack, and lunchbox (if bringing lunch).

Staying Healthy At School

This year in order to keep students healthy and in order to limit their possible exposure to COVID, we will be following the guidelines below when deciding whether a student needs to go to the nurse's office. We will continue to offer a full range of nursing services including dispensing daily medications. Situations such as soiled clothing, papercuts, minor bumps, ect., will be handled in the classroom. Teachers have been trained in the guideline and are knowledgeable about serious conditions that require nursing attention including head injuries and student's Individual Health Plans.

For Students Attending Remotely

On Monday, we will begin our full remote learning schedule. At Bertram, remote learners will be taught through team teaching. Each classroom teacher in your child's grade level will be presenting specific content each day. Your child will experience teaching from all three teachers each day. Teachers have worked together to plan and deliver lessons that are consistent from room to room so that all students have the same learning opportunities.

Remote Learning Schedule - Starting Monday, 8/24

This is the daily Remote Learning Schedule. This schedule is subject to change based on the needs of the campus.
