Big Reds, Making a decision regarding the reopening of Bellaire Schools is a difficult one because none of us knows what the future holds. Even though the number of cases in the general population might be higher now as compared to when we began hybrid learning, cases associated with the Bellaire Schools are at a low point, both student and staff cases. We have had no evidence to suggest any spread has occurred within the school setting during the pandemic. Given our firm belief that it is in students' best interest to be in school every day for a variety of reasons, academic as well as social/emotional, for example. The Bellaire Local School district will resume in-person, face-to-face instruction 100% of the time on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

Bellaire Schools Educational Announcement: Bellaire Schools will be operating on a Hybrid Educational Model through Friday, January 15. It is our goal to resume full time, face-to-face instruction, on Tuesday, January 19. This decision will be made based on the number of students and staff under quarantine and in consultation with the Belmont County Health Department. Families are encouraged to communicate with their Building Principals so that we have the most recent information on students’ health status. As a reminder, the current grading period and first semester will end Friday, January 15th. Students should plan accordingly and consult their individual instructors on how and if late work will be accepted. Should parents have additional questions, those should be directed to their children’s individual buildings.

From Mr. Jenkins, Superintendent- BIG REDS NATION: It has become necessary for the Bellaire Schools to implement its remote learning plan beginning Tuesday, November 17th. 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 plan and hope to be back in school on Monday, December 7th.

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!
