"Good evening Bethany Families. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
We will continue operating under Plan B this week with students in our AA cohort attending school on campus Monday and Tuesday, students in our BB Cohort attending school on campus Thursday and 100% Virtual Students participating remotely Monday through Thursday.
This Thursday, February 25th is an Early Release day. School will dismiss 2 hours early at 12:45pm. Friday, February 26th is a Teacher Workday. There will be no school for students and no remote work will be assigned.
Bethany Elementary will kick-off our annual schoolwide fundraiser this week. Packets will be sent home with AA students on Monday and with BB students on Thursday. 100% virtual learners may pick up a fundraiser packet at their convenience beginning tomorrow. All order packets will be due to the Bethany front office during the week of March 15th.
School pictures have been rescheduled for the first week of March. Students in our AA cohort will have pictures taken on Tuesday, March 2nd and BB cohort students will have pictures on Thursday, March 4th. Virtual students will be given the opportunity to have their picture taken on March 2nd or March 4th. Walk-ins are welcome between 12:00pm-2:30pm. Please enter at the double doors by the cafeteria. Masks are required and all students will be screened, including temperatures taken, before entering. Parents may walk students to the door but must remain outside. Pictures will be taken inside the gym to help with safe distancing. Students will be escorted straight to the gym for pictures and then back to their parents outside.
