The alertnow script below has been recorded for parents and posted to Dojo. Please share as you see necessary. "Good evening Bethany Families. This is Josh Eanes, Principal at Bethany Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Parents, as we start another week of school I want to remind you 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, have a family member that has been tested for COVID or have been exposed to COVID. Our school staff will help determine appropriate next steps for attending school safely.
End of Grade tests for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. Our students and teachers have worked extremely hard during this difficult school year and I know they will do their very best this week. Please be sure students get plenty of rest, eat a healthy breakfast and are on time for school each day. Virtual only students have the option to test on June 3rd and 4th. All EOGs must be taken on campus at our school. There is no remote option for testing since this is a standardized state mandated test. I wish all of our students good luck as they take EOG’s!
Parents, Bethany Elementary is collecting all school issued devices. A purple info sheet was sent home with students a week ago regarding leased chromebooks. Please return this form with your child’s school issued chromebook, in their bookbag, tomorrow. All chromebook chargers and RCS hotspots should be returned also. Again, all devices should be returned by the end of the day tomorrow. Students attending school virtually for the remainder of this school year will return chromebooks at the end of the school year and do not need to return them tomorrow.
Bethany Elementary will be hosting a 6 week Summer Acceleration Academy for students providing remediation in all academic areas. The camp will begin on June 14th and run through the end of July. Transportation and breakfast/lunch will be provided. Initial invitations were sent home last week. Please know these invitations were based off of mid-year assessments completed this past February. We are currently administering end of year assessments and final invitations for Summer Acceleration Academy will be sent home soon. Please be on the lookout for final invitations based off of end of year assessment and return the bottom portion of the form letting us know of your interest.
All Bethany library books are due to the media center by this Friday, May 21st. Please help by locating and turning in all books by this date.
Parents, our Bark Blast Water Day is approaching fast! This year’s fun will take place on Friday, May 28th. Many fun activities are planned for our students. As we prepare, we are in need of the following items: pump hand sanitizer, clorox wipes, water hose, can drinks and bottled water. If you are able to donate, please deliver the items to the front office no later than May 21st.
Please enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to a great week of school. "
