COVID-19 Student Positivity Rates

UPDATE: After several weeks of reporting cases under 4% per building, the Basehor-Linwood School District has begun reporting student COVID cases by building on a weekly basis. Numbers will be updated on Thursday afternoons and will be reported Friday mornings. (Building administration and nurses will continue to monitor their daily numbers, which will allow us to be timely in implementing a temporary mask mandate should a building's positivity rate exceed the 4% threshold at any time.)

*Please note, we rely on families to report student cases to us, so these percentages reflect only student absences denoted as COVID-positive.
 

What the 4% threshold means:
This means masks will be required for all students, staff, and visitors while indoors at the buildings exceeding the 4% rate to help slow the number of positive COVID-19 cases. The temporary mask requirement will be in place for at least two weeks (10 consecutive days) and until the weekly percentage COVID-positive result drops below 4 percent for two weeks (10 consecutive days). Case numbers will continue to be monitored daily by building nurses and reported on this page.

What you can do to help:
Families and staff are encouraged to remain diligent in monitoring for symptoms. Individuals who suspect they are ill (i.e., fever, chills, cough, sore throat, etc.) and are not feeling well should stay home. Please see our updated exposure guidelines graphic below.

Contact tracing:

To help alleviate some of the pressure on our schools, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), along with the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE), support schools implementing a 30-day temporary suspension on all contact tracing activities. This means that beginning Tuesday, January 18, all students and staff who have tested positive and/or are showing symptoms, please continue to stay home. Anyone else who has previously been a close contact, who is not showing symptoms, can return to school - this applies to all Pre-K-12th grade students, our district child care classrooms, and all staff members.
