On Monday, April 11, Belton ISD will move to Scenario 1 of our COVID-19 Response Plan. The decision to transition is based on Bell County recently reaching the lowest incident rate since the start of the pandemic.
Scenario 1 is the closest to a pre-COVID-19 school environment, although we should note that some prevention and mitigation strategies have been incorporated into standard practice. For example, the district will continue contact tracing, reporting COVID-19 statistics to local and state health officials and updating the dashboard. Handwashing and other good hygiene practices will still be encouraged.
We appreciate your partnership and look forward to safely celebrating our annual end-of-year traditions this spring.
