Burlington Cohort Definitions by Building
BES cohorts are defined as a grade level. Grade levels have minimum mixing while indoors in the elementary school. Grade levels are allowed to mix outdoors for recess. Grade levels are allowed to mix for after-school tutoring and enrichment activities. Staff will keep rosters to determine exposure during these activities.
BMS cohorts are defined as a grade level. Grade levels are kept apart during class, lunch/recess and during passing periods. Grade levels are allowed to combine for extra curricular activities. Extra curricular activities create additional cohorts and a student would belong to more than one cohort should they participate. Seating charts are kept for contact tracing and parents are informed if their student was potentially exposed to close contact.
Due to the nature of student schedules, the high school practices social distancing as much as possible. Seating charts are kept for contact tracing and parents are informed if their student was potentially exposed to close contact. Extra curricular activities create cohorts for those participating in them.
Good Afternoon Parents, Staff and Students,
Due to a large number of illnesses, the district is experiencing a high number of student and staff absences The district will be closing all three schools this Wednesday and Thursday, January 19th & 20th, to hopefully allow the illness to run its course and prevent the district from experiencing another shutdown. There will not be online schooling or homework packets during these days.
All extracurricular activities will continue as planned, including athletic practices and competitions, the Stock Show trip, etc. If they are not feeling well, I ask that you keep your students home from activities over the next five days to help us resume school next Monday at 100%. I understand that this is not convenient for many if not most parents and I appreciate your understanding as we work to minimize disruptions to the school year.

Buenas tardes padres, personal y estudiantes,
Debido a una gran cantidad de enfermedades, el distrito está experimentando un alto número de ausencias de estudiantes y personal, el distrito cerrará las tres escuelas este miércoles y jueves, 19 y 20 de enero, para permitir que la enfermedad siga su curso y evitar que el distrito experimente otro cierre. No habrá escolarización en línea ni paquetes de tareas durante estos días.
Todas las actividades extracurriculares continuarán según lo planeado, incluidas las prácticas y competiciones atléticas, el viaje stock Show, etc. Si no se sienten bien, les pido que mantengan sus estudiantes fuera de las actividades durante los próximos cinco días para ayudarnos a reanudar la escuela el próximo lunes al 100%. Entiendo que esto no es conveniente para muchos, si no para la mayoría de los padres, y aprecio su comprensión mientras trabajamos para minimizar las interrupciones en el año escolar.
