Barnstable Public Schools COVID-19 Information


    In an effort to keep our BPS community as healthy as possible, we ask that students and staff who are ill stay home until feeling better. As a reminder, students should never be sent to school if they have had a fever, vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours. This helps to prevent all illness, not just COVID-19, from being spread among our students and staff. Please encourage good hand hygiene, covering coughs and sneezes, and to not share cups, bottles, utensils, etc. with others. Illness related absences should be reported to the school nurse.
