Daily COVID Screenings

September 8, 2020

All BCMS families whose students will be returning to the school buildings will begin receiving, via email, a required daily screening for their students that must be completed every morning before school.


Parents and guardians of students who have chosen virtual learning will not receive the daily survey for those students. However, all other families will receive the screening via email each day. It is important that the screening becomes a daily morning routine. To ensure that routine, families of students in grades 7-12 who will be attending school on an alternating “A” and “B” day schedule will be asked to complete the survey every day, even on days when students are not scheduled to be at school in person.
