Dear BCHS Families,
On Thursday, April 29th, and Friday, April 30th, 2021, BCPS officials received notification from the Boyd County Health Department that two BCHS students tested positive for COVID-19. Due to the two positive cases, several BCHS students will be required to quarantine. As of late this afternoon, contact tracing is complete; and parents have been notified. No additional students will need to be quarantined at this time.
As always, our custodial and maintenance staff will continue to clean and sanitize all BCPS facilities and buses at high levels throughout the remainder of the school year.
We encourage our community to continue following the recommended public health guidelines, including wearing a mask, frequent hand washing, and maintaining social distancing whenever possible. Please be aware of any symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Additional symptoms may include runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lack of appetite, loss of smell and taste, diarrhea, headache, and body aches. If these symptoms develop, please self-isolate, do not send your child to school, and contact the health department or your local health care provider.
