Bulloch County Schools has changed how it will notify families if their child had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 at school. The school district says automating the process will provide families this information more quickly.
On August 12, Bulloch County Schools began sending automated telephone calls and emails to families if their child was a close contact to a case at school. These will be sent each weekday at 5:30 p.m.
If families would also like to receive this information via text message, they can opt in to receive text messages by texting ALERT to 22300. The cellular telephone number(s) they use must be a number(s) the school district already has on file for their child.
This is also a good time to ensure the school district has all of the correct contact information for a child. Families can do this online using their Campus Parent account to update and verify their child’s information. They may visit the Campus Parent webpage for how to do this and how to obtain a Campus Parent account if they do not have one.
For the school district’s infectious illness mitigation protocols, which include COVID-19, and weekly reports of cases, close contacts, and clusters, visit the school district’s website. They are also posted at the top of all schools’ websites.
