Bee Cave Beehive

5.12.21

Dear Bobcats,


WOW! Can you believe that we only have 2 1/2 weeks left of the 2020-2021 School Year? It has been a year of challenges and a year of successes! Bee Cave Elementary has stayed happy and healthy, which was my first priority. I want to send out a heartfelt thank you to everyone for all of your help and support this year with keeping our kids well and in school. I truly cannot thank you enough.


These last couple of weeks will go by very quickly as there will be the remainder of STAAR testing and EOY parties and festivities the last week. Please stay tuned to hear from your child's teacher on when their class party/festivities will be.


We will move through these last weeks with continued diligence in following our daily COVID protocols that help ensure that everyone stays healthy. Thank you for continuing to contact us when your child (BCE student) or family member becomes COVID positive so we can help guide you through the quarantine or isolation period timeline, protocols to follow before returning to school, and a plan for continued instruction during this period.


I will be sending beginning of the year information to you later in the summer, including what it will look like coming back to school in the fall.


Take care and stay well,

Principal Kellner

District updates Return to School Protocols for COVID-19, reviews new CDC guidelines for quarantine

As conditions surrounding the pandemic continue to evolve, Lake Travis ISD officials have evaluated and updated the Return to School Protocols for COVID-19. Specific changes can be found in the document as outlined below:


  • Self-screening Protocols for Staff and Students (p. 12)
  • Close Contact (p. 14)
  • Protocols for Re-entry After Confirmed or Suspected COVID-19 (p. 14-15)
  • Protocols for Re-entry After Coming into Close Contact with an Individual Test-Confirmed to Have COVID-19 (p. 15-16)


Additionally, District officials are aware of new guidelines issued December 3rd by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which reduce the number of days close contacts should quarantine following exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual. Austin-area school district officials and local health authorities participated in a conference call December 4th to review and discuss the CDC's guidelines. Given the importance of contact tracing and quarantining in our schools, Lake Travis ISD will continue its review of these guidelines and will make a final determination shortly.


"The health and safety of our school community is of utmost importance," said Paul Norton, Lake Travis ISD Superintendent of Schools. "Our plans will remain flexible to accommodate potential changes, and guidelines may be further modified as needed. In the interim, we urge our school community to continue the consistent practice of personal hygiene and social distancing."

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.

Symptoms are:


★ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

★ Loss of taste or smell

★ Cough

★ Difficulty breathing

★ Shortness of breath

★ Headache

★ Chills

★ Sore throat

★ Shaking or exaggerated shivering

★ Muscle or body aches

★ Diarrhea

★ Fatigue

★ 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.
