Good Afternoon Broncho Family,
Happy Friday from Bethany Public Schools! I wanted to give you an update on our COVID-19 numbers.
Please notify the school when anyone in your household tests positive for COVID-19 or exhibits symptoms. When parents call to let us know someone has tested positive in their home, it allows us to get that information to the contact tracer more quickly. The contact tracer then gathers the necessary information and makes their decisions much more quickly than if it passes through normal channels. This allows us to notify those who have been exposed sometimes days faster. Quicker notification ultimately reduces the number of sick or quarantined students and staff.
We will continue to be transparent with all we do. Of course, HIPAA and FERPA laws restrict some information for the privacy of those involved.
The map below is a screenshot of the updated COVID-19 map (figure 1) we use to determine what level we are on on the Bethany Bronchos Health and Safety Protocols (figure 2) Last week we were at an Orange-2 level, this week we remain at the Orange-2 level. The following link will take you to a live map where you can get additional information about all the counties as well as towns and zip codes.
Thank you all for your continued support of our kids, teacher, staff and school district. We will get through this together.
