Important Message to Parents - 9/26/2014

Re: Chicken Pox

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We found out today that a student in the HS/MS building has a confirmed case of chickenpox.  The student developed the symptoms despite having had both the varicella vaccination and the varicella booster vaccination.

Chickenpox is contagious and may cause some children to become quite ill.  We do have some children who have not been immunized and others that have weakened immune systems so we feel that it is important to notify parents when a virus like this occurs.

If your student develops chickenpox-like symptoms, please notify the school if the chickenpox has been confirmed by a medical professional. If your student does develop chickenpox they should be kept home from school until the rash has dried up, generally 5-7 day, to avoid spreading the virus.  The rash usually starts on the trunk and face region of the body, but can spread over the entire body.  Other than an uncomfortable itching rash, symptoms may include a fever, sore throat, cough, headache or general feeling of illness.

For more information, please contact your doctor or the local health department.

Thank you,

Jim Emery

Superintendent/HS Principal

Press Release: Open Enrollment for 2014-15

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

From: Bellaire Public Schools Board of Education

The priority at Bellaire Public Schools has always been to provide a quality education for our students.  One component that truly aids in that goal is having a low student-to-teacher ratio as we believe that class size is a critical part of our children’s education.  Therefore, during the 2014-15 school year, the only new open enrollment/school of choice requests that will be considered will be for students entering the following grades 1, 7, 8, 9, and 10.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact any of your School Board members.

“The mission of Bellaire Public Schools is to provide an environment which develops self-sufficient and productive citizens to adapt to a challenging and changing world.”
