CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Shout out to BMS parents who have submitted vaccination verification for their children
More than 120 parents of Blackhawk Middle School students have submitted vaccination verification for their children.
If your child has received the COVID vaccine, please click the link below to complete the confidential online vaccination verification form. The information collected from it will be essential in assisting us in keeping students and staff safe.
During contact tracing, the District and the DuPage County Health Department will use these forms to determine if students that have been identified as close contacts to a confirmed COVID case must quarantine. (If masking guidance changes, schools will use the forms to determine who does not have to wear a face covering because they are vaccinated.)
Nobody is required to submit a confidential vaccination verification form, but fully vaccinated students are not required to quarantine if exposed to someone with COVID, and the District and the DuPage County Health Department will consider those without forms on file to be unvaccinated.
COVID VACCINATION RESOURCES
Please consider getting vaccinated!
Students 12 and older are eligible for the COVID vaccine, which greatly reduces the chance they will get COVID. Vaccinated individuals who do get COVID typically experience less severe symptoms, are less likely to require hospitalization, and are more likely to survive the illness.
