BK Community Health Values

Stay Healthy.       Stay in Class.       Stay Together. 

The threat of Covid-19 continues to be present in our minds and community. We all must remain vigilant and work together to protect ourselves and our neighbors—allowing us to stay in class and school activities.

  • Monitor yourself for illness and Covid-like symptoms: If you are experiencing any symptoms STAY HOME and contact the BK Nurse’s Office.
  • Limit Risk of Exposure: Avoid unnecessary large group or densely populated gatherings. Masks can help reduce exposure risks when social distancing is not possible.
  • Do Your Part: Be diligent in protecting and promoting your own health so our school community can remain healthy and stay in school.

Latest COVID-19 Updates

Campus Experience and Safety Protocols 

Bishop Kelley is currently operating with full, in-person classes and campus life at near-normal procedures and practices. Over the past year, we have fine-tuned our COVID-19 safety procedures and are ready to implement them when and if necessary. Here are a few highlights: 

  • Masks are recommended but are not required for students and staff.

  • Classrooms will continue at full capacity.

  • Campus activities (i.e. academics, athletics, student activities, theater) will continue in their normal, pre-COVID capacities. 

  • Bishop Kelley will continue to monitor the health situation and cases will implement safety protocols as needed.

Isolation Policy and Protocol

If a student exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 or any infectious illness during the school day, they should immediately leave their classroom and report to the designated isolation room in the Nurse's Office where they will be assessed. Students must be picked up within 30 minutes if exhibiting symptoms of infectious illness. Please have a designated safe alternate pick up plan in place in case of delay due to parent work schedule or travel.

At this time, if you test positive, there is a 5-day isolation period with a return on Day 6 as long as symptoms have resolved or improved. On your return, you will need to wear a well-fitted mask for a remaining 5 days. Just a Reminder: In calculating isolation, Day 0 is your first day of symptoms or positive viral test. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed or test specimen was collected.

Thank you all for your diligence and commitment to our community.
