Hello BES Parents,

As we continue to prepare for student school re-entry, we wish to continue to ensure you have our most current mitigation practices in written form for your reference. Please find the RE-ENTRY CONSIDERATIONS for parents, students and staff below.

Below are guidelines to follow noting when to stay home.

RE-ENTRY CONSIDERATIONS: WHEN TO STAY HOME

When should students stay home based on symptoms?

If a student has ANY of the symptoms belowSTAY HOME AND DO NOT REPORT TO ANY DCSD BUILDING! Contact your healthcare provider.

  • Fever/temperature at or above 100.4 or chills or sense of having a fever
  • Cough that you cannot attribute to another health condition
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
