COVID-19 Information

We really desire to partner with our parents this school year especially in light of COVID-19 issues. We need you to partner with us by being the first line of defense with regular screening of your children.
 
What's the goal?
 
The goal is for BCS students, teachers and staff, along with their families, to be healthy physically so in person education takes place as we strive for learning, spiritual growth, and emotional well being.
 
It will take us ALL to accomplish this goal. HOW?
 
Stay home when sick.
 
The current guidelines from the Indiana Department of Health are stay home when you answer yes to ANY of the following:
 
  • Congestion/runny nose
  • Fever of 100.0 or above (BCS policy)
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath/Difficulty Breathing
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle pain or fatigue
  • Chills
  • New loss of taste or smell
 
Please refer to the attached screening tool. We will use the same tool to decide if your child needs to be sent home from school.
 
We will no longer encourage students to push through not feeling well.
 
If your child has allergies, migraines or other medical issues that would explain why he/she was not feeling well, we will work through those together.
 
BCS will be working closely with the Allen County Board of Health as we navigate COVID-19. If BCS has someone who tests positive for COVID-19, you will be notified if your child is considered to be exposed. We will do that through contact tracing using seating charts and cohort information.
