Keeping our BCSD Community Informed
COVID-19 Status Update

#

Oct. 19 - 22 (New cases)

5

Individuals who tested positive

27

Individuals currently quarantining

In an effort to keep students, staff, parents, and the entire community aware of how COVID-19 is impacting our District, we plan to share as much information as possible while protecting the privacy of those affected. Following the direction of the U.S. Department of Education, we will release details by District and not by building to ensure the privacy of our students and staff. Please note we will update this data at the close of each week, and you will be able to view it on the District Return-to-Learn Webpage.

When the District is notified of a positive COVID-19 case through the health department, parent, or staff member, the building principal and nurse will begin to assist the health department in determining any individuals who may have been in close contact with the positive individual. For all close contacts, the health department and/or the school will be in contact with the family.


Return-to-Learn FAQ Updates
The District’s Return-to-Learn FAQ was updated on October 9th. Check out the updates to Health and Safety (highlighted in pink):

    • What happens if there is a positive COVID-19 case?
    • What are the procedures for allowing a sick student or staff member to return?


Free Breakfast & Lunch for All Students
We offer a FREE breakfast and lunch for every child between the ages of 1 - 18. This includes students enrolled in the Bettendorf Community School District and any other child aged 1 - 18 years. Learn more
