BPSD Pandemic Precautions & Distance Learning
The district’s COVID protocols vary with its five alert levels: Green, Yellow, Orange 1, Orange 2, and Red. The alert level is determined during the school year by the average of district cases and city cases and is updated & posted at BPSLEARN.COM each Wednesday afternoon.
The CDC says the best precautions against COVID infection include vaccination, masking, distancing, and contact tracing.
At least 3-foot spacing is a goal in classrooms, with up to 6 feet when feasible. The current alert level affects indoor student assemblies, indoor and outdoor venue capacities, and third-party use of school interiors.
If you have any “A” symptoms or 3 or more “B” symptoms, stay home until you get a negative PCR test. If you do a rapid or antigen test, false positives are quite rare, so a positive result is considered confirmation you have COVID-19. But a negative result from an antigen test is false about half the time, so if you get a negative rapid test result, proceed with PCR testing and stay home until you receive a negative result.
