Dear BEA Community,
We had two additional positive Covid cases today, a first grader at Wingate Elementary and a 7th grader at the Middle School.  The parents of those students that need to be quarantined have been notified.
Again, neither case was traced to being contracted at school.  To date, we have not had any transmissions between students in any of our cases and I am hopeful that trend continues.  Most of our students who have been on quarantine will return prior to Thanksgiving.  While we have seen an uptick in the number of cases, they have been spaced in different buildings throughout the district.  Therefore, at this time, I do not plan to close any schools.  
My thoughts and prayers go out to the students that have caught Covid and wish them a speedy recovery.  I hope that in the near future, I will not have to send these emails out.  As always, I will keep you updated as events warrant and appreciate your support.
