Bee Cave Beehive
Dear Bobcat Parents,
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ...
for your continued support in our efforts with keeping everyone healthy by encouraging and practicing the wearing of face masks, hand sanitization, and staying at a safe distance.
Our APEX fundraiser is underway and the kids are having a blast! Please see the schedule and information below for details. We will have a second prize pick up for our remote learner this coming Friday afternoon from 3:30 - 5:30pm in the back bus drive.
We have seen a change in traffic since the new grading period with the increase of in-person students. Please be patient as this will smooth out just like it does at the beginning of the year. I appreciate you communicating with me when there are things that are of concern, so please do not hesitate to let me know. As I always say, I can't make better what I don't know needs help.

LTISD Protocols for Screening
***Please remember to screen your children each morning before school.***
If your child has any ONE of the symptoms on the screening list, they should stay home.
★ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
★ Loss of taste or smell
★ Difficulty breathing
★ Shortness of breath
★ Sore throat
★ Shaking or exaggerated shivering
★ Muscle or body aches
★ Congestion or runny nose
★ Nausea or vomiting
Please know that children who come to school with symptoms will be sent home.
It is important that everyone become familiar with the re-entry protocol
Re-entry protocol applies to students who experience symptoms at home OR if they are sent home from school.
● at least one day (24 hours) has passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);
● the individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and
● at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
The 10 days must be observed even if symptoms only last a short while and the child did not have fever.
If your student wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, you must either:
● obtain a medical professional’s note (with date) clearing the student for the return based on an alternative diagnosis; or
● obtain an acute infection test (at a physician’s office, approved testing location found at tdem.texas.govc/covid19/, or another site) that comes back negative for COVID-19.
In-Person vs. Remote Learning for your Child
