Dear Buford City Schools Families,

We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, students, and staff very seriously.

As we head into our first of several upcoming breaks from school, we want to make sure you are informed about the Center for Disease Control's guidance for International Travel .

All air passengers coming back into the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States.

Travelers must also be tested 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after travel. Even if you receive a negative test result, you must stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days. If you choose not to test, it is safest to stay home for 10 days after travel.

For more information about COVID-19 and what you can do to keep healthy and safe, visit the Centers for Disease Control at or your local health department's website.

We appreciate the cooperation and care our BCS families have taken during this second semester. Do not hesitate to reach out to us about this information.

Dr. Robert Downs
