Bangor High School Goes Remote Due to COVID-19 Case
Bangor High School has moved to remote learning, due to a case of COVID-19.
According to a post on the Bangor School Department's website, Bangor High School students will begin the remote learning model immediately. In-person learning will resume on Tuesday, April 6th. The school staff will be notifying all members of the school community who may have come in contact with the student or staff member who has tested positive for the virus.
Fourteenth Street School has also confirmed a case of COVID-19 in a student or staff member. Officials say there were no close contacts to this person, and so in-person learning will continue, as usual.
Members of the Bangor School community are reminded to continue with safety protocols, in order to keep the number of cases down, including:
- Wearing a face covering, when out in public.
- Practice physical distancing, of at least 6 feet.
- Practice good hygiene, including regular hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and avoiding touching your face.
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched services.
- Avoiding close contacts with people who are sick.
- Taking care of yourself, including eating right and getting plenty of sleep.
Staff members, students, and their families are reminded to stay home if they're showing symptoms or feeling sick. Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
Any questions should be directed to your child's school. For general COVID-19 questions, call 211.
