Important Covid19 Alert

Dear Bemus Point Community,
I want to let you know that the safety and health of our students and staff is our greatest priority. I know it is frustrating to not have all of the details about our current situation at Bemus Point Elementary and at Maple Grove Middle/High School. Please know that we are working with the Chautauqua County Department of Health and providing you with all relevant and permissible information. All contact tracing has been completed and all potentially affected individuals have been contacted. 

Because of the nature of the elementary situation, we are unable to adequately staff the elementary school. As a result, Bemus Point Elementary School will go to a virtual instruction model starting on Monday, October 26th, and lasting until Friday, November 6th. Please be aware that this is currently a staffing issue and not an outbreak. Maple Grove Middle/High school will continue its current hybrid model. 

There will be a parent community meeting for all elementary parents on Monday, October 26th,  at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM to discuss the next two weeks. . Please join us at a time that works best for you. 

We will keep you notified of any new developments. Please continue to wear masks, wash your hands, and stay socially distant. Stay safe and stay well Bemus Point.  Sincerely,

Joe Reyda Superintendent of Schools
