Dear BHRSD Community,
I hope this past week has found you some rest and time with loved ones.  Before we return to school on Monday, I wanted to share important health updates we received from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Department of Public Health.
Yesterday,  they released updated guidance for public schools reflecting some of CDC’s most recent COVID-19 recommendations.  Please note that while the isolation guidance for K-12 is changing (applying to people who have COVID), the quarantine guidance (for those who are exposed but haven’t tested positive) will be staying the same for K-12.
The guidance for the general public has been updated and can be found here:

Please see attached for the updated health protocols we will be using moving forward with changes highlighted in yellow.

Thank you,

Peter Dillon, Superintendent
