  • Covid-19 Screening Testing Program

    In our continued effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, Bridlemile will participate in a weekly COVID-19 Screening Testing Program, a partnership between the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) and PPS. Screening testing provides early detection of COVID-19, even when individuals have no apparent COVID-19-like symptoms.  

     If you are interested in having your student(s) participate in this free weekly COVID-19 screening testing program, please be sure to return a signed copy of the opt-ins provided to your student earlier this week. 

     If I enroll my student in this testing program, what should I expect?

    1. Families who wish to participate in the testing program must fill out the consent forms and health authorization forms we sent with your student on Friday, September 24, 2021 or Monday, September 27, 2021.

    2. Our school will receive testing kits and labels to send home every Thursday.

    3. We ask you that every Friday morning, your student spit into the test tube. We encourage you to watch this 4 minute video on how easy it is to collect a spit sample.

    4. Please return the spit samples that same morning. Dropboxes will be located at the Bridlemile front/main entrance. Samples will be collected by OHSU for transportation to the lab for testing.

    5. OHSU will share the results within 48 hours of the specimen being dropped off at school. You will receive a secure email with your child's results. Please note: PPS will not receive the results of your student’s test. 

     If it is a positive (or inconclusive) result, we ask that you keep your student home from school. Please call us immediately and we will follow the guidance provided by our partners at the Multnomah Health Department. 

     We know that this is an important tool in our effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It’s also important to remember that despite the availability of this program, the best tools to protect individuals against COVID-19 are vaccination for those eligible, physical distancing, masks, proper ventilation and airflow, hand hygiene, and staying home if ill or exposed to someone with COVID-19. 

     We are excited for the launch of this screening testing program, helping us make more informed decisions about our students safety and health.

    Hello Bridlemile Families!

     

    It's hard to believe that we are here yet again! It seems like only yesterday that we were preparing to receive our students for Hybrid instruction.  Although times have been difficult, we have shown resilience, perseverance, dedication and most of all the will to rise above adversity to do the best we can to ensure student success.  So, I am confident that we will take on any challenge that may come during this 2021-22 school year as we all continue to work together.

    As you prepare your family for the start of school, we hope that there remains excitement for students who will be starting their educational journey and for those who will continue, moving on to the next grade.  Although things are changing rapidly, we will continue to keep you abreast of any new guidance that we receive from the district. We anticipate there being adjustments that will be made throughout these first days so I ask that you all continue to be flexible and remain positive as we will all need to lean on one another this year.

    We will continue to follow guidance from OHA and PPS to ensure that students, staff and families are as safe as possible. Please be sure to follow all communication and updates as you receive them.

    Here's to another great year of teaching and learning and we look forward to seeing you all as we start this 2021-22 school year at Bridlemile Elementary!
