BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Bend-La Pine Schools Monday launched a new interactive and more robust COVID-19 dashboard, providing current alerts on COVID-19 isolations and quarantines in the district.
Bend-La Pine Schools COVID-19 Dashboard
Users can sort data by school site and time period to better understand COVID-19 cases and related quarantines in their school community. The data is automatically updated every 15 minutes with cases confirmed by Deschutes County Public Health.
Monday night’s dashboard showed that the district had a total of 334 students and 10 adults in quarantine, while 34 were in complete isolation.
La Pine Elementary School had the highest quarantine rate in the district, with 40 students, while Rosland Elementary, also in La Pine, had 18 quarantined students.
“I want to thank the dedicated staff who have worked tirelessly to bring this tool together to provide a more transparent picture of COVID-19 cases in our school and district communities. This was a great boost, but I believe it will make a significant difference to our employees and families who are looking for a more in-depth look at matters,” said Chief Inspector Steven Cook.
Families can now find school-wide reports of positive cases on the dashboard. Families will continue to receive a notification letter when their student: is identified as being in close contact with a COVID-19 positive person, is identified as being COVID-19 positive, is part of an athletics or activity team, or is identified as having low risk exposure in a elementary School.
