Benefield Parent Newsletter

July 7, 2020

Greetings Benefield Parents and Guardians-

I hope that you and your family are having a good summer despite the circumstances. During a special called Board of Education meeting on July 7, 2020, the district updated its plan for Fall 2020 to include a new start date of August 12 for in-person instruction, along with an option for digital learning, for students in grades K-12. Decisions also were made to require masks and to cancel planned in-person graduations. Click here for more about these decisions and updated plans.

You should have received information on June 29, asking you to select an option for each of your children. I know that there are many questions, concerns, and wonderings out there, so we will devote a portion of Thursday night's meeting to discuss returning to school. Please join us at 7 p.m. via Google Meet (

We are better together, and together we will create safe, successful school opportunities. I look forward to navigating the journey with you.

Proud to serve you,

Mrs. Stevens
