BISD is asking all families to complete the 2021–22 Free and Reduced Meal application. One of the key components of the application is it is used to identify families eligible for funds through the P-EBT program. If you received P-EBT funds in 2020–21 and do not complete the 2021–22 form, you will not be eligible for P-EBT funds or other benefits in 2021–22.
BISD has created a dashboard (“the Dashboard”) to provide BISD families and staff with information about new active COVID-19 cases in the District. An “active case” is defined as an individual who has been in a BISD school and test-confirmed to have COVID-19. Dashboard is now available.
Health Screening -
PARENTS/GUARDIANS: Before sending your child(ren) to school each day, YOU are responsible for screening them for COVID-19 symptoms. When each child reports to school, YOU are acknowledging that you have taken his/her temperature, and they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, meaning symptoms that are not normal for them.
If symptoms are present, the parent/guardian should contact the campus nurse for further guidance on if, or when, the child(ren) should report to school.
COVID-19 Symptoms include:
· Temperature of 100 or greater
· Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
· Muscle aches
· Sore throat
· Loss of taste or smell
While on campus, any student who experiences symptoms will immediately report to the school clinic. If the temperature is 100 degrees or greater, a second temperature will be taken to verify the first reading. If the second reading reflects a temperature of 100 degrees or greater, the student will be sent home immediately.
