Blue River Valley Schools would like to remind our staff and students of the following information to stay ahead of the ever evolving information regarding the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States.
Stay home when you are sick: If possible, stay home from work, school and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth: Germs spread this way.
Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects: Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Find additional CDC resources on how to clean and disinfect schools.
Wash hands for 20 seconds: Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
Blue River Valley has decided effective March 13, 2020 to close the week of March 16, 2020 up until the end of spring break in abundance of caution with the Corona Virus Outbreak.
