Dear Parents, Guardians, and BISD Staff, In keeping with the District's practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families that a staff member who was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 was present on the campus of East Elementary School on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify him or her. The District, in cooperation with the local health department, has begun a case investigation and will contact any individuals determined to be in "close contact" with the infected individual. All students and staff that came into close contact will be directly notified as soon as possible. Those that were in close contact will remain off campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus, so that there will not be any further spread. All District's facilities are sanitized and cleaned daily. We will keep you apprised of further updates. While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, watch for symptoms of COVID-19. Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection: Temperature of 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth; Sore throat; New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with a chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline); Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; or New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever. If you or any member of the BISD community does begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that his not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the BISD community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school immediately. Sincerely, Bryan Allen Superintendent Breckenridge ISD

This means that ALL children qualify for free breakfast and free lunch starting Monday, September 21, 2020, while funding lasts . This program also applies to the Remote Learners, however if the parents choose to not bring their child when they pick up their meal(s), they will have to bring proof of enrollment.

Our Breckenridge Junior High football games scheduled for Thursday vs Eastland are BACK ON. All high school games this week have been cancelled. Tickets for the junior high games will be available at the gate on Thursday. We will have information about tickets that were purchased for the high school games tomorrow morning. Stay tuned for updates! We apologize for any confusion. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Buckaroo Fans: Due to an unfortunate situation, all football games scheduled for this week with Eastland have been cancelled. Eastland ISD has made the decision to suspend UIL Athletic Competition for this week. They have had several athletes who have either tested positive or are showing symptoms of COVID-19. The Eastland Mavericks and their administration did all they could to prevent this from happening, but at this point, they have made a decision that is best for their student body and their community. Let's keep the Eastland Mavericks in our thoughts over the coming days. Once again, NO FOOTBALL GAMES THIS WEEK.
