While described as COVID-19 safety precautions, most of these are really practices that can help prevent or lower the number of cases of the flu , RSV, and other diseases as well.
Students and staff with severe symptoms such a fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea should stay home. Should symptoms occur while at school we encourage students and staff to leave early or mask. Students and staff with persistent symptoms or a worsening cough should consider talking with their doctor. Taking an at-home test for COVID-19 may also be a good idea.
Students and staff should practice good hygiene by washing their hands before and after they eat, after using the restroom, and after being outside. We encourage individuals to cough or sneeze into their elbow rather than their hands.
Bellevue Community Schools will ensure that the building is cleaned at least once a day.
