Eagle Elementary School, the Bethlehem Central School District’s newest elementary school, opened its doors to students for the first time in September 2008.
The Bethlehem Central Board of Education decided to build the new school in an effort to alleviate elementary school overcrowding and give the district room for future space flexibility. The construction of Eagle was part of the district’s $93 million building project, which the community’s voters approved in 2003 to renovate and upgrade each of the district’s buildings.
The naming of this newest Bethlehem Central elementary school was also a community affair. Students, parents, community members and staff members submitted potential names, with students ultimately voting on the finalists in the fall of 2006. Eagle was the clear favorite.
Attendance and Reporting Absences
Regular school attendance is essential to a student’s educational development and social-emotional well-being. With some exceptions, every child enrolled in school is expected to be present each day school is in session.
All absences, tardiness, and early departures (ATED) must be accounted for. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school office on the day of the ATED and to provide a written excuse upon the student’s return to school.
Visiting our School
Our visitor policies are designed to ensure the safety of all students and staff and minimize disruption to the instructional program. The doors to all elementary schools are locked during the school day. Visitors will push a call button at the main entrance to alert the office to their presence at the door.
Main office staff will ask visitors to identify themselves, and then will “buzz” them into the building. Once inside, visitors will report to the main office, sign in, and take a visitor’s badge. Upon leaving the building, please return to the office to sign out and return the badge.
