Daily & Weekly Updates

Recognizing that some families do not want to receive numerous phone calls when there are positive cases of COVID-19, BTCS is changing our method for sending daily notifications for new cases of COVID-19. In addition to updating the COVID-19 Reporting Dashboard, beginning November 9, each school will send staff and parents a notification of the total number of new cases and new quarantines for that day. These notifications will only be provided on student attendance days. In addition, the district will begin providing a weekly update for parents via Canvas, which will include even more information about the number of positive cases of COVID-19 and resulting quarantines in our district. The daily school and weekly district notifications will be sent as Global Announcements in the parent and staff Canvas accounts. 

You may choose how you prefer to receive these announcements within your Canvas account settings. To view and change contact information and notification preferences in Canvas, go the Account link. Your email address and mobile phone can be added or changed under Settings. Notification preferences can be viewed and changed under Notifications. Again, the COVID-19 case updates will be sent as Global Announcements. You will find your notification settings for Global Announcements under Alerts by scrolling to the very bottom of the Account Notifications Settings.

To learn more about setting notification preferences in Canvas, you may refer to the following video.
