COVID-19 Info

November 19, 2021

Dear Bentley Community,

Due to rising COVID positive cases and quarantining among staff, Bentley Schools will be virtual and asynchronous next Monday (11/22) and Tuesday (11/23); as you know, we are already closed for the holiday on Wednesday through Friday.

Therefore, all students will be going home today with a device: iPads for kindergartners and 1st graders, and Chromebooks for 2nd -12th graders. This is so that they can log on to the playlist next week. Please recall that all lessons are accessible on the Bulldog Learning Center, which you can also access by going to https://www.bentleyschools.org/ and clicking on “Bulldog Learning Center.”

We recognize we are coming into a holiday and that everybody’s stress level has been high—the pandemic has worn all of us out. By offering learning asynchronously, students will still be able to connect with their teachers. There will be learning expectations that are posted, but the emphasis will be on catching up on missing work, reviewing tough concepts, and/or connecting. So, be sure to have your student check in on the playlist on Monday and Tuesday in the hyperlink above.

Extracurricular activities will continue as planned next week as long as coaches and athletes are not quarantined.

Most importantly, I hope you all are able to re-connect with family and friends, to give thanks for all that you have, to relax and regroup over this extended break.

Wishing you all peace,

Dr. Kristy Spann
