On Wednesday, 11/25/2020, Blackford County moved into the “Red” level of community spread on the Indiana State Department of Health Dashboard. This dashboard looks at the number of cases and the positivity rate of the county, and both figures are at their highest this fall for our county.

After consultation with the Blackford County Health Officer, we are following her recommendation, students in grades 9-12 at BJSHS will be on at-home Blended Learning for the week of Monday, November 30th through Friday, December 4th. This is a preemptive move by our district, in conjunction with the health officer on anticipated spread through the holiday activities this week. The focus on high school students doing at-home learning is driven by that age group being the highest area of typical spread in school aged students.

Students in 7th grade and 8th grade at BJSHS, as well as students in BCS Elementary schools, will continue with normally scheduled classes in person.

We want to continue to thank our faculty, staff, parents and students for their efforts during this unusual year. Our student cases and quarantine numbers within the schools have stayed low due to your diligence in monitoring student symptoms and reporting issues to the school. The preemptive move next week will only be successful in reducing the spread if students and families continue to practice good health habits including social distancing, wearing masks, and frequent hand washing/hand sanitizing while not at school.

To our High School students, it is imperative that you maintain a great effort during this week of blended learning. Look for emails about the upcoming week, and plan your schedules to participate in online discussion and lectures as set up by your teachers.

We appreciate the support of our community and look forward to students in grades 9-12 returning to in-person learning on December 7th.

Sincerely,

Chad Yencer
Superintendent
