As you are aware, we made significant adjustments to the 2018-2019 school calendar for the renovations of Johnson and Rockwell.  The goal of the adjustments was to create a summer of close to 12 weeks to maximize construction for the projects.

Currently the Board, as stated on the calendar, gives me latitude to reduce the vacations (both February and April) to compensate for weather related closures.  I hate to do so at the last minute, because many staff and families have nonrefundable vacations. I have communicated to you multiple times (emails & newsletter, both this year and the end of last year) the following:  

  • If we have 3 weather related closures by February 15th, we will have school on February 19th.

  • If we have 4 weather related closures by February 15th, we will have school on both February 18th and 19th.  

As of tomorrow, Tuesday, February 12th we will have three (3) weather related closures prior to February 15th.  Therefore, Bethel Public Schools will now be in session on Tuesday, February 19, 2019.
