REMINDERS and UPDATES
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
