Dear Blosser Lane and Brookside Families of Bus Riders, Please be informed that a person on your child’s bus for Blosser Lane Elementary School and Brookside Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. The person was on the bus today, October 26, 2021. There will be no bus service tomorrow morning; it will resume tomorrow afternoon for those students who have tested negative. Please bring your Brookside student to Brookside at 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. for drive-thru testing. If negative, your child can come to school and then take the bus home as usual. If positive, more information will be provided. The Kids Club bus was not affected; it will run as usual. If you do not want your child tested at school, you have two options. You can have your child tested at your health provider’s office, or with the County. If you do not wish to have any testing, your child will need to quarantine at home for 10 days, and may return on Monday, November 8th. If you have questions, please call the Blosser Lane office at 459-3232 or the Brookside office at 459-5385. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Voluntary travel outside of the area (usually 120 miles or more) should be done cautiously, wear face masks, maintain social distance and wash your hands . If you are going somewhere and participating in higher risk areas like parks, hotels, etc., the current CDC guideline is to quarantine for a minimum of 7 days after traveling. It is further recommended to take a COVID test 3-5 days after you return, if negative you may return to work/school 7 days after travel.
