Big Pine Families, Thank you for your support in helping reopen our schools. We believe that keeping schools open offers Big Pine students the best educational, social-emotional, and extracurricular opportunities and support. Please help us continue to keep our schools open. Everyday we are faced with challenges to our health: smoke and air quality, allergy and cold season, the beginning of the flu season, and COVID-19. To support our school remaining open and to protect everyone’s health, please consider these guidelines: Observe what our local public health officials are recommending. For example, read about their guidance for a safer Halloween and Dia de los Muertos celebrations. We will be following these recommendations and unfortunately this means we will not trick or treat through town this year. If your child has any of the following symptoms, please keep them home from school: temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher/fever, a sore throat, an uncontrolled cough/difficulty breathing, diarrhea/vomiting/abdominal pain, or a severe headache. When children are ill or have the symptoms listed above, they should return to school only after the symptoms have improved and they have been fever free for at least 24 hours. Sending ill students to school only puts us all at risk. If someone in your home is quarantined or your child has had close contact with a person with confirmed COVID-19 or close contact with a person quarantined for possible exposure to COVID-19, have your child and any other siblings in the family stay at home. Please do not send any children to school when someone in your family is quarintend in your home and/or has been exposed to COVID-19. Please consider getting a flu vaccine if you have not already done so. Thank you again for your support in helping us keep our schools open. To remain open means that we are all following best practices in safety, hygiene, and illness prevention. Only as a united community can we keep each other healthy and ensure that our schools remain open.
