As we excitedly await our move to Phase 4 - In Person Learning at our middle and high schools, which is coming up on March 30, we did want to take a moment to remind everyone to continue to do their part to help us #StayTogetherBVSD
It will take all of us working together to keep our schools open.
Please consider taking the following actions:
- Stay home if you feel ill - many positive cases report having very minor symptoms (headache, congestion, a scratchy throat).
Limit interactions outside of your household
If you do have to venture out:
Wear face coverings
Socially distance, whenever possible
Wash your hands often
When people ask Chris Urbina, Boulder and Broomfield counties’ public health medical officer, the best way to stay safe during the pandemic, he always shares the same list of tried and true virus prevention tips.
As we prepare for the return of students to the Boulder Valley School District in January, our partners in public health say the data and research shows that schools are one of the safest places for our students and staff to be during the pandemic, because it is one of the few places in our community where a layered approach to health precautions is being implemented with fidelity on a daily basis
Getting kids back to in-person learning and staying in school is what everyone wants. Safely doing so during this pandemic will continue to take everyone working together, including staff, students, and families.
