Bee Cave Beehive

3.30.21

Dear Bobcats,


WOW! I can't believe we are in the last nine weeks of the 20-21 school year already. Looking back...We have been in a pandemic, through five 1st days of school, and one of the most severe snow/ice/winter storms in history for this part of the map. Everyone has done an AMAZING job this year with flexibility, tolerance, perseverance, and staying healthy. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone !


With continued diligence in following our daily COVID protocols we 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.


Take care and stay well,

Principal Kellner

A message from our counselor, Mrs. Trimmer ...

This month, our kids are learning how to be safe, strong digital citizens. We're talking about the importance of realizing that a stranger online is anyone we don't know in real life, and that it's important to never share personal information with people we don't know. Also, it's important to pause and think before searching, clicking, and sharing. We need to pay attention to our feelings and ask for help when we feel confused or scared about something we see online. Finally, we discussed the importance of setting limits on how much time we spend online, and making sure that we're spending at least as much time on other activities we enjoy. We talked about what it means to have balance. Students shared with me that some of their clues their media usage is "out of balance" is that they start to get a headache, have trouble sleeping, their eyes hurt, and they feel irritated, angry, or bored. We know there's so many fun things and places to explore online, but it's important to stay balanced because too much of a good thing is bad. I will be visiting with 3rd-5th graders this week, and their lessons will cover cyberbullying in addition to the other topics listed above.


The lessons I used this month were from commonsense.org. and netsmartz.org. There are also a lot of great resources there for parents to help us stay current on the appropriateness of games, apps, YouTube channels, movies, etc. There is SO MUCH out there and it's really hard to keep up with all there is for our kids to see and do, so it's helpful to have a trusted source for all of the things we need to know in order to help our kids stay safe and responsible. While we're on the topic, Hands Free Life and Hands Free Mama by Rachel Macy Stafford are some of my favorite books on being balanced and present. As parents, we are pulled in many different directions, and these books have helped me find balance in my own life. They offer practical tips for reducing distraction and stress in order to be fully present for what really matters.


We're having so much fun learning about this important topic! As always, please don't hesitate to reach out if there is ever anything I can do for your child.

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.
