Device Pick Up for ALL Students!

WHEN: Wednesday, August 26th from Noon to 6:00 p.m. and Friday, August 28th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. If these days and times don't work, please call the school office at (419) 886-3244 to make other arrangements.


WHO: ALL Bellville Elementary Students, both remote learners and in person


WHAT: In person learners will pick up their devices and drop off school supplies. Remote learners will pick up their device and all other materials they will need to begin remote learning on August 31st.


BRING: In person learners, please bring a bag/box/crate of your school supplies during device pick up to leave at the school labeled with your child's name and teacher's name. These will be delivered to your child's classroom so they do not need to carry everything in on the first day of school.


WHY: If Richland County would be in purple, or Governor DeWine makes a change regarding schools, all students would have their devices to begin remote learning on Monday, August 31st.


WHERE: We will be doing a drive through at the rear of Bellville Elementary. Parents will not exit their vehicles or park in a parking place. We will be using the same procedures as we did in March 2020 with material pick up.


All students K-5 will begin school on Monday, August 31, 2020.
