This afternoon, Bend-La Pine Schools is launching a new, interactive, more robust COVID-19 Dashboard offering up-to-date notifications about COVID-19 isolations and quarantines within the district.
Users can sort data by school site and time period to gain a better understanding of COVID-19 cases and related quarantines in their school community. Data auto-updates every 15 minutes with cases confirmed by Deschutes County Public Health.
“I want to thank the dedicated staff members who worked tirelessly to pull this tool together to provide a more transparent view of COVID-19 cases in our school and district communities. This was a big lift but one I believe will make a meaningful difference to our staff and families looking for a more in-depth view of cases,” said Superintendent Steven Cook.
Families can now find school-wide notification of positive cases on the dashboard. Families will continue to receive a notification letter when their student: is identified as a close contact of a COVID-19 positive person, is identified as being COVID-19 positive, is part of an athletic or activities team, or is identified as low-risk exposure in an elementary classroom.
