Due to a significant increase in BUSD staff members required to quarantine due to testing positive for COVID or being identified as a close contact, it is not currently sustainable to stay open to in-seat learning district-wide. Each of our school sites are feeling the impact of this and unfortunately it's likely that further ripple effects will continue in the coming days given the elevated levels and spread of COVID in our community. After today, BUSD will transition to Distance Learning (DL) for all students from January 15th - 29th (2 weeks). During this time, please make plans for your student to attend school remotely according to the Distance Learning schedule at your school site. (Keep in mind, this Monday 1/18 is MLK Day, a school holiday.) We plan on seeing students back on campus on Monday, February 1st. Thank you for doing your part in supporting our schools and keeping our community safe.
