Dear Parents & Guardians:
Attached you will find the Box Elder School District (BESD) Covid-19 response plan for the 2021-2022 School Year. This plan has been developed by the Bear River Health Department (BRHD) in conjunction with the four school districts (Cache, Logan, Rich & BESD) in the BRHD Region. These guidelines and recommendations are taken from the Utah State Health Department’s recommendations. At this time there is no longer a state wide mask mandate. There is still a pandemic in our state and in our county. Our hope is to follow this response plan and do all we can to keep the students and adults in our care as safe as possible. Throughout the plan you will see the word recommended. It is our hope that we can all work together to follow this plan and help mitigate the spread of the virus. Wearing masks is still an option for anyone who feels like it will keep them as safe as possible. There will be every effort to allow mask wearers to feel safe and supported.
As we all know last year was a tough year and it is our hope that we can have a safe and educationally sound year coming up. Please be safe and have a fun and exciting conclusion to summer.
Steven E. Carlsen
Box Elder School District
