BKW Secondary School community,
As a result of a number of teachers and/or staff members being quarantined due to possible exposure to COVID-19, BKW Secondary School students are shifting to a Remote Only Learning schedule until Tuesday, January 19.
All secondary in person instruction is temporarily suspended for the week of January 11-15. Monday, January 18 is a school holiday with no instruction at all. BKW Elementary School will operate in person as normal next week.
Secondary School teachers and staff may come to the building to teach from their rooms, unless they are on quarantine.
Please remember that moves like these may become necessary at any time if a significant number of BKW faculty are placed in mandatory quarantine, and a staffing shortage requires that we temporarily shift a class or school building to a fully remote setting.
This notification is part of our commitment to keep you informed during these uncertain times. However, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and other privacy laws restrict district officials from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. Therefore, we cannot identify by name anyone who has tested positive or is under quarantine.
Please continue to conduct at-home screenings and maintain personal awareness of COVID symptoms for your children. As always, the health and safety of the students, staff, and community in the GASD remains our top priority.
Timothy Mundell, Ed D
Superintendent of Schools
