Dear BCSSSD Staff and Parents/Guardians:
The COVID-19 dashboard on the district's website will now reflect the reporting of positive cases only for the prior day. The dashboard is updated each day at 3:00 pm. If a case is reported after 3:00 pm, it will be included in the following day's report. Please note that the number reported does not reflect the number of students or staff quarantined.
The District is coordinating closely with the Burlington County Health Department (BCHD) and following CDC, state, and local health department guidance in order to assure the health and safety of our community.
Contact tracing has already been completed, if there was a positive case. If your child was identified as a close contact (masked within 3 feet or unmasked within 6 feet for 15 cumulative minutes or more over 24 hours), you received additional close contact notification by email and/or phone. This exception to last year’s close contact definition of less than 6 feet applies to students only, per the NJ Department of Education’s Road Forward: Health and Safety Guidance for the 2021-2022 School Year. Like last year, we may apply the close contact definition more broadly for increased safety in certain situations. No further action is required if you did not receive the additional close contact notification.
