Good afternoon, Family School! As we gear up for the new school year, I wanted to let you know that we are getting ready for the remote/hybrid learning model. -Teachers will return on August 25th. -Students will begin the remote learning starting Aug. 31. -The hybrid model (which is what FS is already doing) will start Sept 8th. Teachers will be calling/setting up times to discuss what your student's day/details will look like regarding the remote learning when they return. The hybrid model will look exactly like our schedule, except - the 1/2 day Wednesday will be removed for deep cleaning/planning/updates. Please visit the "documents" folder on our website to get additional information regarding Instruction and Remote Learning Policy. It is our goal at Family School to provide the best education for your student(s)/family. It is with your help that we can make this time a great learning experience and a safe learning experience for your student/child. Together we can do great things for our children!

Family School Parents/Teachers/Students: As the Principal of the Alternative Schools, I wanted to let everyone know that we are doing our best to plan and move forward with the new school year. There is a lot of unknowns and valid concerns from every person and family. I am a firm believer of staying positive and doing our best with whatever our situation is... The survey is designed to get an idea of what people need/want for their students/child(ren). Please know if you want 100% online learning - we WILL offer it to you and your student... As I mentioned that we are all working diligently given the situation...like you, I want to plan and ensure everything is order...unfortunately, I am not able to have solid plans and provide answers to every concern at this time... However, if we look forward, stay positive and figure out together ways to help educate our children - we won't fail! I pray everyday for all the students and staff who I miss very much... if there is anything I can do to answer or alleviate stress - please feel free to email me at batistam@beleneagles.org Mary C.

As we prepare for the upcoming school year there are many uncertainties. Belen Consolidated Schools is working on preparing for students to re-enter school in the fall. The Public Education Department is working with a task force to provide guidance. The link to access the 2020-2021 Student Calendar that was approved by the School Board is: https://go.aws/37m3V2p. We are anticipating that we will start school as scheduled on August 18th. We are hopeful that it will be in-person with all our students but are preparing for variations that may need to take place do to COVID-19 CDC guidelines. We recognize that students are our foundation and will make decisions that positively impact their learning and well-being.

Hello Family School Parents and Guardians: This is a friendly reminder, please do not leave your student at school without an adult supervision and be mindful of start and end times. Many students are left for Science Club on Tuesday, or Yearbook on Wednesdays. Science Club is not a drop off activity. Please be here to supervise your child. Younger siblings of Yearbook need to be picked up or have adult supervision (their older sibling is not an adult). This becomes a safety issue. Thank you!
