    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:

     

    SELF-SCREENING QUESTIONS

    1. Has your student experienced any of these symptoms, not associated with previously diagnosed conditions, in the past 72 hours:
    • Fever greater than 100.4/chills
    • Cough/shortness of breath
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea
    • Experienced multiple symptoms
    1. In the last 14 days, has your child:
    • been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19;
    • been placed on quarantine for possible contact with COVID-19;
    • traveled abroad or to an area of the country where it is recommended that they self-quarantine;
    • had a COVID-19 test pending

    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.
