On Monday, May 10, 2021, the FDA approved the authorization of the Pfizer Vaccine for students aged 12-15, now allowing all individuals 12 and up to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine if they wish. The CDC formally approved the Pfizer Vaccine for 12 and up today as expected. This will begin to move us further towards our school reopening efforts for next year, as well as allow more communities to reach that 80% mark for further reopening of our region. Teams from NSHC will be put together Thursday, May 13 and be ready to begin administering shots on Friday, May 14, 2021. As stated before, I have approved teams from NSHC to come into the schools and provide shots as necessary. Attached are links to the Pfizer Vaccination Consent Form for parents and the EUA referenced on the form. If you would like for your child to receive the vaccination at the school, please complete this form and return it to your school office by Friday, May 14, 2021. The Bering Strait School District highly recommends all eligible students and community members get the vaccine to assist in our efforts of keeping all our students, staff, and communities safe.

Good Afternoon Gambell Schools Community: Unfortunately, due to the number of community spread COVID cases and the school closure, all student travel and home activities are cancelled until further notice per BSSD Superintendent, Dr. Bolen. We will continue to monitor the situation and send out updates as soon as they are available.
Good Afternoon Gambell. I would like to inform the students, staff, and community that Gambell Schools will be on RED status next week 11/1-11/6 due to the current number of community spread COVID cases in the village. Meals and school work packets will be provided beginning Monday from 11:30 am-2 pm. Please only have one person from each family pick-up meals and you must wear a mask.
Good Morning Gambell. In order to mitigate the possible spread of COVID here in the village, the school has decided to move the school carnival to November 24, 2021 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. We will also have an early out that day. We will also not be having Open Gym this weekend, and will re-evaluate this next Monday. Our responsibility is and continues to be the safety of the students, staff, and community members and the school administration feels that not having the carnival and open gym is the best way to help prevent the spread of COVID. We will continue to monitor the situation, as we are in communication with Norton Sound Health and the school superintendent, and keep you advised of any and all changes that occur. Thank you for your cooperation.
