COVID-19 Potential Exposure and School Closure

Good Evening DCSD Families,

Please know that the health and safety of our students and entire community are our first
priorities in all that we do, and we will be providing extensive support to each of you during this
time. With that in mind, we want to make you aware that your student may have been exposed to
COVID-19 on or around February 2nd.

We are working closely with BBAHC throughout this time and close contacts will be notified
directly by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and/or DCSD, if possible.

To support this safety effort, the buildings are closed to all students beginning Thursday,
February 4th. Virtual school will resume through, on-line only classes, beginning at various time
intervals on Tuesday, February 9th for MS/HS students and prior to or on Wednesday, February
10th for Elementary students. Each school will send out further communication in the upcoming
days. The district will continue to operate under the high-risk operation plan until further notice.

Next, to support our families, students and staff, BBAHC will conduct a mass testing event on
Sunday, February 7th from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M in the MS/HS Gymnasium. If your family
chooses to participate, BBAHC has asked that your students attend in the times/grade slots below
(Families with students in multiple grades may attend when it works best for them.):

10:00 A.M. – K through 3,
11:00 A.M. – 4 and 5,
12:00 Noon – MS, and
1:00 P.M. – HS

We will continue to share additional information as quickly as we are able to and will continue
operating with student and staff safety in mind.

Jason Johnson, Ed.D.
Dillingham City School District
