UPDATED COVID-19 Info: January 11, 2022
Return-to-Play after COVID-19 Infection:
Although the symptoms and disease course of COVID-19 in younger people appear on average to be somewhat milder than those of older individuals, there is the potential, and documented cases, of severe disease complications in people of all ages. In addition, it is not yet known whether the currently circulating Delta and/or Omicron variants, or other SARS-CoV-2 variants will affect children differently than what has been the experience to date. Furthermore, the long term health effects and impacts on organ systems function resulting from even mild or asymptomatic COVID-19 disease is still unknown, although there have been some studies implicating blood clotting and cardiac effects as potentially under-recognized longer-term sequalae.
As such, DPH recommends that all youth athletes receive health screening and clearance from a healthcare provider prior to resuming athletic activities after recovering from COVID-19. Post-COVID athletic health screening and a phased approach to a return to athletic activities should incorporate the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) guidance for Return to Sports and Physical Activity.
Please click on the link below for a form to have filled out by your child's health care provider:
Athletes who have been diagnosed on or after August 1, 2021 will need to submit the clearance note to the BMS or BHS Health Offices. After this note is received by the school health office, the athletic trainer will review the clearance and begin a Return to Play Protocol, if required, with the athlete before clearing him/her to participate in BPS Athletics.

***New for 2019-2020***
Consequences for Possession/Use of Tobacco, Alcohol, Drugs and Vape Products:
There are a few changes to our drug, alcohol, and tobacco/nicotine products policy for the 2019-2020 school year. These policy changes were the result of a recommendation from a Bethel High School committee that included administrators, teachers, parents, coaches, and club advisors. In an effort to promote a safe and healthy lifestyle, we are introducing this policy to help students understand the effects of self-destructive habits involving alcohol, drugs, and tobacco/nicotine products in the hope that they will refrain from future at-risk behavior. In addition, the new policy provides an opportunity for students who are in violation to seek support and reduce the term of their suspension.
Please note: this new policy (as delineated below) applies to all extracurricular activities (sports, clubs, band, musical etc…)
Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco/Nicotine Products Policy
The first offense will result in a minimum 60-day suspension from all extracurricular/athletic activities and this will include loss of leadership roles. Students will have the opportunity to reduce the duration of the suspension to a minimum of 21 days (3 calendar weeks) if they meet the following conditions:
Research and respond to a published article relating to the student’s infraction.
A minimum of 2 meetings with school substance abuse counselor or school counselor to discuss the behavior.
Publicly apologize to extracurricular group/teammates and to advisors/coach.
For a drug infraction, the student must pass a drug test conducted by a private facility. Student is responsible for the cost of the drug test.
A second offense within the same school year will result in loss of extracurricular activities for the duration of the school year.
