Bulldogs,

First of all... we all hope you are well.  We think about you often and wonder how you are doing.  Let us know if you need help.

It's been a fast 2 weeks back and I want to update you on where we are at.  Here goes...

COVID, OPH & BCPS

- a child that was sent home from school tested positive for COVID, last week and here's what happens when that happens

- OPH confirms the case, they investigate and we provide data

- people who came into contact with the child are deemed 'low risk' or 'high risk'

- a general notification is sent to the community

- a specific notification goes to 'high risk' individuals and they are required to quarantine 14 days from their last contact with the student

- they fulfill the quarantine WHETHER OR NOT they receive a negative COVID result in the meantime

- by the time OPH was done, those ordered to quarantine included

  • all classmates

  • all buss mates

  • all EDPers

  • 3 out of 4 office staff

  • 7 Teachers, ECEs & EAs

- they will all be back on the 24th and we will be very happy to see them

Coverage behind Mr. MacDonald

- Since Mr. Mac left for a medical leave, we have run several competitions for a short term replacement and we have had NO applicants

- this leaves us with occasional teachers and usually a different one everyday

- I am very sorry for this

- the nice people at the Board are doing their best to help us out

 BCPS Staff

- we are strong bunch made of tough stuff

- this is a challenge for us but we are up to it and doing what needs to be done to provide a safe learning environment for your children

If you have any questions at all, please just call me at a school.

Have a wonderful evening.

Thanks

Dave
