Note from our school Nurse
We are continuing to see new cases of COVID-19 in our school and community. Spring has brought about an increase in allergies, flu and colds. Symptoms of COVID-19 are hard to distinguish from these other illnesses and without testing we cannot determine if the illness is COVID-19 related or not.

COVID-19 is most commonly spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person talks, coughs, sneezes, or sings. The symptoms of COVID-19 are:

* headache
* muscle or body aches
* cough
* fatigue
* sore throat
* nausea or vomiting
* runny nose or nasal congestion
* diarrhea
* shortness of breath
* fever/chills (measured 100.4 F)
* new loss of taste or smell

Currently most of our positive cases are presenting as typical allergy symptoms of runny nose, congestion, cough, sore throat or fatigue. We are encouraging anyone with these symptoms to test regardless of allergy history. Students absent or sent home with symptoms will need a negative test to return to school. Rapid antigen home tests are available in many stores, pharmacies and insurance will often cover the cost. If you are having trouble finding a test kit the school nurse may be able to supply you with one.

Please continue to monitor your students for symptoms of COVID-19 due to possible exposure both in and out of school and report any positive cases in the home to the school nurse for quarantine and isolation guidance.

Thank you for doing your part in keeping our school community healthy.

A.L.I.C.E. Student Training - This past week, all BMS students were trained in the A.L.I.C.E. emergency response protocols. The students did a great job listening and answering questions about these enhanced protocols. In the next few weeks, our students will be practicing barricading with the classroom teachers and having discussions on how to respond to an intruder.

Social Media Awareness - We continue to see students making poor choices on social media.

Have a nice Weekend,
