"Good evening Bethany Families. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
We are excited to begin Plan A tomorrow, March 22nd, with students attending school in-person all 5 days. Students remaining as 100% virtual students will participate in school 5 days a week remotely. As students return this week, all safety precautions will remain in place, including daily safety screens and properly worn masks at all times. Parents, please remember students may begin entering the building at 7:25am each morning and our tardy bell rings at 7:45am. School dismisses each day at 2:45pm. During morning arrival, all students must come through one of our screening stations and walk-ups are not permitted. All parents and students should remain in their car and use our drive thru lane for morning arrival and afternoon dismissal. Please be patient with our school staff as we work quickly each morning to help our students safely enter the building.
To celebrate our students' return, we will have a dress up Spirit Week. Students can participate by wearing Bethany attire or school colors on Monday; Tuesday is inside out/backwards day; Wednesday is wacky tacky day; Thursday is favorite sports team day; and Friday is crazy sock day! We hope everyone will participate in the fun.
Parents, our annual school wide fundraiser has ended and all order packets were due to the Bethany front office this past week. Please be sure all fundraiser packets are turned in as soon as possible.
Congratulations to our Bethany Battle of the Books team for winning their county competition last week! We are very proud of these students!
Parents, we have scheduled picture make-ups and retakes for Tuesday, March 30th. Any student wishing to have their picture retaken or taken due to prior absence may do so on March 30th.
Parents, please be aware that Monday, March 29th has been designated as a Remote Learning Day. All students will participate remotely on March 29th. There will not be live instruction on that day, however attendance will be taken for participation.
Bethany Elementary is happy to announce that kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year will be April 13th from 8:30am-6pm and April 14th 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.
Bethany Elementary will continue serving free breakfast and lunch to any child up to age 18 through the end of this school year, regardless of their free and reduced meal status. 100% Virtual students may pick up 5 days of meals on Wednesday each week between 11:30am and 1:00pm.
Please enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to a great week of school."
