Distance Learning - Bellaire@Home

We are committed to continuing our practice of strong communication each week.  We have created a specific web page for parents that will hopefully serve as a one-stop-shop in terms of resources and responses to questions and concerns.  Included on that web page is our daily schedule, log-in information for all of our platforms, contact tech support form and even more. It's a great site to visit weekly for important updates.  You can access DistanceLearningBHS here
