Beginning Monday, March 15, 2021, the following new mitigation plan in our schools and district office went into effect, assuming no school-related active cases in our community.


Fully Vaccinated Staff (Two Doses + 2 Weeks)

Fully vaccinated staff will no longer be required to wear a mask when in their classroom or walking around their school or building. Masks will still be required when meeting in groups of 25 or more. In addition, Principals will no longer be required to monitor staff that are fully vaccinated on a daily basis and record on their daily COVID checklist. BSSD staff that are traveling and that are fully vaccinated, with permission from the local tribal or governing agency, will not be required to quarantine prior to returning to work.


Previous COVID Positive

Any staff that have tested positive for COVID, in the last 90 days, are not required to vaccinate, quarantine, or test under current NSHC protocols. Therefore, upon proof of your release following your positive designation, these individuals will also fall under the Fully Vaccinated Staff Guidelines above. Once the 90 days is over, those staff will fall back under the non-vaccinated staff guidelines, as till such time as they become fully vaccinated.


Non-Vaccinated Staff (2 or less Doses or <2 Weeks Post Dose)

Non-vaccinated staff will still be required to wear a mask or face shield in school or district office common areas, or in their classroom when conducting individual or small group discussions. Principals will still need to monitor non-vaccinated staff on a daily basis and record on their daily COVID checklist. BSSD staff that are traveling will still be required to quarantine, per local tribe or governing agency requirements.



All students, Grades 3 and up, should continue to wear masks or face coverings in common areas, at lunch, when in large groups (25 or more people), or when doing group work in the classroom. Masks do not need to be worn in the classroom while doing independent work, sitting at their desks, or while moving about the classroom.


Schools will still continue to operate on an "illness-free" status. Staff or students that do not feel well should continue to stay home and document their return to school or work with a note from the clinic.



Upcoming Events: 



A few snow showers scattered about the area this morning, otherwise a good deal of clouds. High 9F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 30%.
