COVID-19 Information

Dear BCS Parents,
BCS received new guidelines from the Indiana Department of Health on Tuesday 8/25/20. Please have your child stay home when you answer yes to ANY of the following:
 
  • Fever of 100.0 or Chills (BCS policy 100.0)
  • Sore throat
  • Cough or Shortness of Breath (especially new onset, uncontrolled cough)
  • Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting or Abdominal pain
  • Headache (particularly new onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell
  • Muscle or Body Aches or Fatigue
 
According to the updated guidelines, a symptomatic person should isolate for at least 10 days and anyone living in their household should quarantine. Therefore once someone in a houshold develops symptoms of COVID-19, all members of the household should quarantine until the symptomatic member receives a negative test result or receives an alternative diagnosis. If neither of those can be obtained, all those living in the home should quarantine themselves for 14 days starting with the onset of symptoms of the symptomatic member of the household.
 
 
BCS continues to work 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.
 
Please notify BCS if your child tests positive for COVID-19 so that we may work quickly, but thoroughly through the contact tracing. If your child tests negative for COVID-19, also let us know so we may walk through the return to school process.
 
Please provide copies of both positive and negative test results for our records.

I am pleased to announce the addition of a part time nurse to join our team. Cindy Buhr is acclimating herself to BCS and ready to care for your child.
