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.

7th and 8th Grade Science Fair today! Today - Mr. Van is having his 7th and 8th grade Science Fair! Parents and Guardians if you are in the area come check it out! Best of luck to those students with their presentation!
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!
