"Good evening Bethany Families. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Students return from Spring Break on a normal schedule tomorrow, Monday, April 12th. As we return, we will continue to social distance 6ft whenever possible, require face coverings worn properly, perform increased disinfecting practices, and promote frequent hand washing. Beginning April 12th, the student daily symptoms and temperature screenings will be discontinued. NC DHHS has removed this previous requirement from their current guidelines. All employees will continue to complete daily symptoms and temperature screenings
I do want to remind parents to please contact your child’s teacher or our school prior to sending a child to school if they have symptoms, have been tested for COVID, or have been exposed to COVID. Our school staff will help determine appropriate next steps for attending school safely.
Bethany Elementary will host kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year on Tuesday this week, from 8:30am-6pm and Wednesday from 3pm-6pm. Please call our Bethany front office to schedule an appointment time to register. We are excited to welcome our newest bulldogs to Bethany and hope you will help share the word in our community.
Parents, Fall Fundraiser items will be delivered to Bethany this Thursday, April 15th. We will sort and send home items with students that day. If you know that your child sold an abundance of items, you may pick these items up after dismissal. All fundraiser money is due Friday, April 30th. Thanks again for selling!
