Dear Parents and Guardians, 

As we head into the holiday week and our week of remote learning that follows, we will continue to watch the numbers of COVID-19 cases in our county. Our number one priority remains keeping our students and staff safe. In order to be as safe as possible, we will continue to share updates from the Kent County Health Department and continue to share our health and safety protocols within our BCPS Return to Learn Plan.

We have appreciated the communication regarding symptoms, testing, close contacts, and positive cases. We also appreciate the continual screening of our students being done at home. BCPS would like to continue to monitor the data while students are out of the buildings. We ask that you continue to communicate with us as well.

If you or anyone in your household are testing, determined as close contacts, or become positive for COVID-19 during our time away, please contact the building using the information below. If you have questions, please put those in your email as well. Someone will contact you as soon as possible. Please reference the Kent County Health Department toolkit as well.

Jen Lake email:

Information: child(ren)’s name(s), situation details, any questions you have

As always, thank you for working alongside BCPS to keep our students and staff safe. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
