As a reminder, BVSD's illness protocol follows CDPHE's How Sick is Too Sick guidelines.
Students may return to school or child care as long as the symptom(s) have been resolved for 24 hours unless the symptoms are caused by an illness that requires them to stay home longer.
COVID testing is recommended, not required, for anyone with COVID-like symptoms or a known exposure
Testing is available through BVSD and COVID Check Colorado throughout the district - see the schedule here
COVID-like symptoms include:
- Fever (100.4 and above), chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose or congestion, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea
Any individual who tests positive must isolate at home until:
They have had no fever for at least 24 hours — without the use of fever-reducing medicines, AND
Symptoms are improving, AND
It has been at least 5 days since symptoms began. (If symptoms do not develop, count 5 days from when the test was administered.)
Individuals should then wear a well-fitted mask for the next 5 days when around others. If they are unable to effectively wear a mask for an additional 5 days, they should isolate for the full 10 days.
If you have questions about returning to school after an illness, please contact our school's health office.
Parents and guardians can log in to their Infinite Campus Parent Portal site to notify School staff of an expected student absence. This will ensure the authenticity of reported absences, while also providing families with improved communication when a student misses class.
See below for a step-by-step guide that can help you through the process.
The BVSD Report Absence Form allows parents and guardians to securely report a student’s absence from school for a single day. Users submitting an absence report will receive a confirmation email at the contact email address listed in Infinite Campus. The form can be toggled between English and Spanish. Confirmation emails will be sent in English or Spanish depending on the preferred language of the user listed in Infinite Campus.
Students are not able to self-report absences from Campus Student.
