Covid Policy

BVC Covid Protocol


We are so excited to begin the semester at BVC.  Between a new facility and ongoing covid concerns, we’ll need more parent help than ever to keep the doors open.  For the safety of our students, all parent duty positions need to be filled each week.  We need parents to be willing to step in at the last minute if another parent is unable to serve their duty time.  This will help ensure that we can meet each week.  We’re asking each family to donate one canister of disinfecting wipes and one pump bottle of hand sanitizer to assist in keeping students healthy on Fridays. 

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Stay home if anyone in your household has had a positive test within the last seven days.  Students AND parents.

  • Parents should check each child for symptoms on Fridays before coming to BVC.
    People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear two to fourteen days after exposure to the virus. People with the following symptoms may have COVID-19:

    • Congestion or runny nose

    • Cough

    • Diarrhea

    • Fatigue

    • Fever (100.4°F) or chills

    • Headache

    • Muscle or body aches

    • Nausea or vomiting

    • New loss of taste or smell

    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

    • Sore throat

  • Students will be sent home midday if exhibiting covid symptoms.

  • Students will be asked to apply hand sanitizer when entering each class.

  • Parents should contact the committee if a student tests positive for COVID after attending the previous Friday.  The committee will let affected teachers know but not share a family’s information publicly.  We truly want to respect each family’s privacy while protecting teachers and classmates.

  • Parents are encouraged to step in at the last minute if parent duty subs are needed.  To be added to the substitute contact list, email servicehours@brazosvalleyco-op.com.

  • Connect with other BVC parents and have a substitute in mind for your own duty times in case you need to stay home unexpectedly.  If you’re home due to COVID, do not send your spouse to serve as a sub.

  • BVC will not offer make up classes/refunds.  Our families can help ensure we’re able to meet each week.  Should there be too many unfilled parent duty positions on a Friday, BVC would be cancelled for that week with no make-up classes.

  • Let your teachers know if you’re open to being a classroom substitute.  This will help them plan in case of a last-minute substitute need.

  • Notify teachers if your student will be absent.

  • Students showing COVID symptoms may return to BVC after (1) Seven days since onset of symptoms AND (2) No fever for 24 hours without medication – OR – a negative COVID test.

Covid policies are subject to change as the need arises.
