Updates for December 14-18
  • COVID-19
    • Our COVID-19 guidance is at BPSLEARN.COM, including exposure guidance. On Distance Learning Days, please call a child's school to keep them informed if your child is a close contact or tests positive for COVID-19. During Winter Break from December 19-January 3, you can email Health & Safety Director Kerry Ickleberry or leave her a voicemail at 918-336-3311 ext. 1196 if you need to report a student who tests positive for COVID-19 or is quarantined as a close contact.
    • It is vital to suppress city cases and reduce the loads on hospitals to make in-person instruction feasible. Please follow basic precautions.
    • Due to high rates on infection and overloaded hospitals across the nation, travel is strongly discouraged over Winter Break
      • Consult the CDC guidelines on holiday travel and gatherings, including how to make winter holiday celebrations safer and safer celebration ideas.
      • If you simply must travel:
        • Check whether the area you are traveling to has quarantine or testing requirements you must follow when you arrive.
        • Quarantine for 7-14 days before your trip.
        • The CDC says those who do travel should get a test (PCR or rapid antigen, not an antibody test) one to three days before travel and three to five days after travel, regardless of where they are headed. 
        • Due to high rates of false negatives, a negative COVID-19 test before traveling is not a free pass and should be accompanied by the quarantine period.
        • Consider your mode of transportation: driving is generally safer than flying.
        • Once you've arrived at your destination, be prepared to continue physical distancing, wearing masks, and washing hands. Do not let your guard down: most hospitals are overloaded, so you could be putting yourself or loved ones in jeopardy.
