Health Information

COVID-19 update: Due to the current global pandemic, SBS has initiated new health protocols for this school year. Upon arrival to school each morning, students will have their temperature checked and be assessed for symptoms associated with Covid-19-like illness. A health questionnaire that screens for COVID-19 has been posted on the ParentPortal, and should be completed daily for each “in-person” student. Additionally, social distancing, mandatory face coverings and frequent hand sanitation have been introduced during the school day. The effectiveness of these measures depends upon the commitment of the entire school community to keep our SBS family safe.
