BCCS School Board approves COVID-19 business plan

Wednesday, August 25, 2021 – During the work session on Monday, August 23, the BCCS School Board approved the COVID-19 business plan, also known as the Safe Return to In-Person Learning Plans, for the 2021-2022 school year. 

BCCS’s COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows the industry guidance developed by the state of Minnesota, which is based upon Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines for COVID-19, Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MNOSHA) statutes, rules and standards, and Minnesota’s relevant and current executive orders. It addresses:

  • ensuring sick employees stay home and prompt identification and isolation of sick persons;
  • social distancing of 3 feet is encouraged whenever possible;
  • employee hygiene and source controls;
  • workplace building and ventilation protocol;
  • workplace cleaning and disinfection protocol;
  • drop-off, pick-up and delivery practices and protocol; and
  • communications and training practices and protocol.
