Early Go Home Drill –Thursday  October 4th

New York State requires all school districts to hold an annual “Go Home Early” drill to ensure that students and staff know what to do in case an emergency requires school grounds to be cleared and students to be transported home or to another location. The Bethlehem Central School District will conduct this drill on Thursday, Oct. 4. All students will be dismissed 15 minutes early – at 3:05.  We ask that you DO NOT pick up your child from school at dismissal that day. All Children should ride the bus. This is a great opportunity for all children to take the bus they are assigned in the event of an emergency situation.

Have a great weekend!


Heidi Bonacquist
