BCS Covid-19 Communications

Aug. 24: Covid-19 Updates, Protocols, & School Status

How Will Positive Covid-19 Cases Be Communicated?

BCS has created the 2021-2022 Covid-19 Communication page on the BCS website. It can be accessed from the home page under News & Updates. The number of positive Covid-19 cases will be posted by programmatic level to our Covid-19 Dashboard reflecting the number of positive cases received by the Covid-19 Tracing Team from Friday at 8 am through 4 pm the following Thursday. The BCS Covid-19 Dashboard will be updated each week on Friday.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Should staff or students be exposed or need to quarantine, you will be contacted by a BCS Covid-19 Tracer and/or school representative and be provided with follow-up health information for the close contact/positive case and household members.

Please visit our Covid-19 Communication page on the BCS website. You will also find protocols for Covid-19 close contacts, and Covid-19 positive cases, frequently asked questions, and weekly school guidance updates.

What Are the Protocols for Positive Identified Cases & Close Contacts

How Will I Know the Status of Face Coverings

Please visit our website and look for the icon pictured below to review important COVID-19 communication for the 2021 - 22 school year.

NOTE: The use of face coverings depends upon the health of our community. Required face coverings can be a temporary situation. When our community experiences fewer transmissions, we will move to a LOW/MODERATE level with recommended face coverings, rather than required. This will require community action. We must all work together to reduce community transmissions.
