    School Based COVID 19 Safety and Protection Protocols:



    Mask are required for all persons inside of our school, regardless of vaccination status.  No exceptions.  If students do not have a mask, the school will provide the student with a mask.  If students refuse to wear to mask, restorative disciplinary measures may be implemented according to the BPS Code of Conduct.

    COVID-19 Testing

    To ensure safety for all, parents will need to SIGN OFF TO CONSENT to ensure that their child(ren) can participate in randomized less invasive PCR testing at no charge.  Testing of all non-vaccinated adults will happen weekly.  30% of vaccinated staff and all consented students will happen weekly. There will be a 24-hour mandatory turnaround for results.

    Social Distancing

    Schools will adhere to the CDC distancing requirement of a minimum of 3 ft. amongst persons.


    When Your Child is ill

    When your child is ill before the start of the school day, it is required that you keep your child home.  If your child becomes ill during the school day, the student will report to the school’s Isolation Room and you will be contacted to pick the child up, as quickly as possible.

    Immunization Requirement

    Please be informed that it is a New York State Requirement that all students participating during in-school learning have up to date immunizations on file in their schools.
