As the BSD Reopening Task Force prepares to #ReopenBSD schools this fall for school year 2020-21, we will post the most up to date information here. Stay tuned and stay safe!
Throughout this process, there have been many questions asked by our staff, parents, and community. We are working to answer each of them slowly through FAQs and our Guidance Document. Please see below for our most recent FAQ document.
In response to the August 11th update to the Agency of Education’s “A Strong and Healthy Start Guidance,” we have created a tool in PowerSchool that will allow families to complete student health screenings at home each morning before leaving for school. Please check out the video for a look at how to complete the daily form, then login to your BSD PowerSchool account to complete the screening.
Remember, it will be important to complete the screening before 7:30 AM each morning, if possible, because at 7:30 each morning, staff will download a report to see who has completed the screening. Those who did not complete the screening prior to 7:30 AM will have to complete the screening on-site prior to building entry. Once students arrive, staff will verify which students still need to be screened and confirm students are fever-free.
