Week of April 5, 2021
Happy Sunday, BCE Family!
I hope that you all enjoyed your extended Easter weekend.
Please note that the district’s mask mandate is still in effect. A mask is still required for all students and adults entering a district office, building or campus. Refusal to wear a mask is grounds for a student to be assigned to virtual learning. I am flexible on many things; however, this is a non-negotiable. As the principal of Bear Creek Elementary, I will protect the health, safety and well-being of my staff and students at all cost.
Please see the calendar of events for month April.

YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT IS NEEDED
As we continue to navigate our current reality, I would like for us all to keep the safety and wellness of Bear Creek Elementary as our main priority. Before sending your child to school each day you are to assess your child’s wellness with the following questions:
If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms or conditions, it is extremely important that they not enter the school building and you should contact their healthcare provider.
All PCS staff, students or visitors entering a school board building are required to affirm their wellness by answering the questions above.
BEAR CREEK MITIGATION STRATEGIES
Face covering/mask must always be worn while on campus
Daily wellness screenings
Only one adult/family will be permitted to enter the front office lobby at a time
Appointments are required for the following:
-Finalize student registration (now available online – please see directions below)
-Medication drop-off to the clinic (Please DO NOT send medications with students)
-Device Pick-up for My PCS Online families
-Meeting/conference with staff
Routine cleaning and daily sanitizing
Practice social distancing (to the greatest extent possible)
Additionally, please DO NOT send students to school if any of the following scenarios are true.
- Your student has knowingly been in contact with anyone who has tested positive.
- Your student or other household member is awaiting the results of pending test.
Please notify school personnel as soon as possible. This will allow us to keep our campus safe and contact the district COVID-19 team.
I appreciate your collective effort in ensuring our campus is COVID free and safe.
Please Note: All Covid-19 public reporting information is available on the district homepage. This information is updated weekly and can be viewed by campus or district building. My main objective is to keep my school community informed as positive cases are confirmed by the Department of Health.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
