YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT IS NEEDED
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.
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.
