NEWS & MEDIA
On October 27, we notified the Bloomfield Hills Schools families that based on feedback, we would begin sending COVID-19 probable and positive case updates to only the impacted school community. After further consideration and discussion, Bloomfield Hills Schools will continue to communicate all district COVID-19 cases to the entire BHS community. Communicating all cases provides the community with an understanding of the district's response, as well as the impact COVID-19 has on our community.
On October 30, Bloomfield Hills Schools will have a half day of school. The half day will be remote/virtual for all DHH (pre-K-12), PREP, and K-12 students regardless of their learning setting (hybrid, remote, and Bloomfield Virtual).
We are writing to update you regarding the latest probable and confirmed cases in Bloomfield Hills Schools. The CDC defines a “probable” case as someone who has tested positive with a Rapid Results diagnostic test.

The schools have been cleaned and thoroughly disinfected. Our regularly scheduled classes will continue and, if you do not receive a specific quarantine notice or a phone call from the Oakland County Health Division case investigator, your child can attend school as scheduled.
We are writing to notify you of two confirmed positive student COVID-19 cases: one at East Hills Middle School and one at Eastover Elementary School. The schools will be deep cleaned once again this evening and all areas will be thoroughly disinfected. Our regularly scheduled classes will continue and, if you do not receive a specific quarantine notice or a phone call from the Oakland County Health Division case investigator, your child can attend school as scheduled.
The Bloomfield Hills Schools COVID Pre-Screen has been updated to now include a self-reporting tool for possible, probable, and confirmed cases of COVID-19.
In addition, families can report a student absence via the form and we encourage families to use the form for absence reporting in lieu of the attendance hotlines at each individual school.
