Principal's Message


Happy Monday Team Bear Creek,


Nice to be able to say "Fall is here" now if the weather will just realize it is indeed Fall, things will be even better :-)


Thank you for being so diligent about letting us know when your children are not feeling well.


Take some time and read all the news that matters.


Much Love and Light,


David

What To Do If Your Child Is Not Feeling Well


What Do If Your Child Is Not Feeling Well


If your child is ill with symptoms consistent (cough, sore throat, stomach issues, headaches, fatigue, congestion, etc ...) with Covid-19 contact Mr. Crissey and your child's teacher and then the following protocols must be followed:


Students May Return After


10 days have passed since symptoms started, and improvement in overall symptoms, and 24 hours have passed without fever and use of fever-reducing medication.


OR


Provide doctor’s note to campus health room staff stating that symptoms are not COVID-19-related and student can return to school.


OR


Provide a negative COVID-19 test. This MUST be a PCR test not a rapid test.


As an FYI the same holds true for staff members.

Bear Creek Book Club


Purchase a book from our special collection of birthday books. Be the first to read it and donate it to the library! Students may also choose a beloved favorite from our existing collection


After joining the birthday book club, Ms. Saenz will have your child choose a book and take a picture to document. The pictures will be placed on the Book Club board inside the library for recognition during that month. Students will keep the book for 2 weeks before returning it to the library for circulation.


Each book is $15 and a special book label will be placed in the book showing your child’s donation to the Bear Creek library. This is a great fundraiser for our Bear Creek library, and we appreciate your support!


Your child will choose a book during his/her regular library time. At the end of the month, the pictures from the hallway will be given to the students to take home.


Thank you for participating! We can’t wait for your child to come choose a book from the library! Your student is more than welcome to participate in more than one book club. Each month is an additional $15. For students with summer birthdays, they may choose a month of their liking.


Due to Covid precautions, payment can be made through
