On the district homepage, choose select a site and choose Coronavirus Communications.
Highmark has provided the following website: https://www.highmarkbcbs.com/home/ as a dedicated resource in order to provide up to date information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Highmark has implemented a temporary COVID-19 Relief Program. Under the program, cost-sharing (i.e. copayments, deductibles, etc.) associated with physician-ordered diagnostic testing for novel coronavirus will be waived for all members. These tests are being treated as preventive, so they will not apply toward the deductible in a QHDHP or impact HSA eligibility. It is the testing (lab charge) that does not have cost-sharing, office visits would still be processed in accordance with your health plan benefits.
Please see the website link for further information, and answers to your COVID-19 questions and concerns.

- a public elementary, middle, or high school;
- a public charter or cyber-charter school;
- a private licensed academic or private religious school;
- home tutoring by a certified teacher;
- or an approved program of homeschooling.
Children may be excused from compulsory attendance for documented medical or other compelling reasons as outlined in District attendance policy and procedures.
