Individual Picture Day is Coming - Tuesday, February 9th

Big picture

Dear families,


Spring Picture Day is coming up! Our BEARS will have individual spring pictures taken on Tuesday, February 9. Virtual students will receive information from their teacher regarding what time to come to campus for pictures.


Pre-order envelopes will be sent home the week before picture day. You can order online or send in your form and money on picture day to give to the photographer. After picture day, students will bring home a QR code that parents can scan to see their proof before ordering, if you prefer.


Proofs will be available online approximately 10 days AFTER picture day. Out of an abundance of caution, and to ensure we are doing what is best for the safety of all staff and students, class pictures will not be taken this year.

K-5th Grade Virtual Classrooms

Big picture
Bennett Elementary is fortunate to have a virtual classroom in kindergarten through 5th grade. Not only do our Bennett virtual teachers serve our BEARS, they may also serve other virtual students from other MISD schools that meet the criteria below:


Our virtual classrooms are for students that meet the following criteria:

1. Parents have selected their child to be a virtual learner for Quarter 1, 2, 3, and/or 4

2. A student tests positive for Covid and is required to quarantine

3. A student is required to be in quarantine as determined by Nurse Tiffany


Therefore, if your child is traveling or not feeling well and will be kept home from school, they will not be jumping on a Zoom link with their grade level virtual teacher(s). Students will be counted absent and provided with their make-up work upon their return to school. Also, be sure to send in their doctor's note or parent note within three days of their return to school.


Thank you for understanding as our teachers continue to work tirelessly to serve our BEARS.
