BIG REDS NATION: It has become necessary for the Bellaire Schools to implement its remote learning plan beginning Tuesday, November 17. This remote delivery will extend through Friday, December 4th. You should monitor your child’s school social media for updates. We will reassess our situation on an ongoing basis. Specific directions regarding your child’s building learning plan are available through your child’s building social media and that specific building’s remote learning plan. Students will be expected to follow their schedule within that learning plan. The schools will remain open and staff will be reporting. I believe all of us can agree that students are better served in school; that they learn best in a classroom. This action became necessary when our district absentee rate reached 25%. It should be noted that the clear majority of this 25% were not active COVID cases nor those students who have been quarantined as ‘close contacts.’ Rather, most of these absentees were non-COVID related. Finally, I want to thank the community for its hard work during this difficult situation. Although we have had COVID cases brought into the school, we have had no COVID spread while students attended school. This is in not small part due to our student following safety protocols, such as wearing masks. We all hope we will be back in school on Monday, December 7.

We have become aware that some are concerned over the bottled water we are giving our students. Rest assured student safety is our central concern. We did identify some water in the district had a 'best by' which had passed. This is very different that an 'expiration date'. Out of an abundance of caution, we are replacing that water. However, please keep the following in mind: per the U.S. FDA, and other health professionals this water is perfectly safe to drink. If a bottle has sediment at the bottom, it was probably minerals settling from the water not plastics leaching from the bottle. This is because a temperature of 150+ for an extended period is required for plastics to leach. Our water is not stored at high such high temps. Thank you and GO BIG REDS!
