Welcome to the BCMS PTO
The Bethlehem Middle School PTO is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the Administration, Faculty, Students and Families associated with the Bethlehem Middle School.
The PTO seeks to fulfill this responsibility by raising funds and seeking out volunteers that will enable us to support the many programs and events that we are called upon to provide for in many ways. The PTO provides assistance to teachers within the classroom settings, raises funds for educational materials and experiences, advocates school and family social interaction and provides an unbiased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children.
It is our belief that the team effort of a parent teacher organization offers the best possible learning environment for our children and creates a positive and meaningful impact on their lives.

SCHOOL NEWS / PTO UPDATES
Important Covid-19 FAQ Updates
October 28, 2021
Positive COVID cases continue to be reported daily in the Bethlehem Central School District. As the pandemic continues to impact the 2021-22 school year, we have been updating our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) as new guidance is received and new questions arise.
Beginning Monday, Nov. 1, symptomatic siblings of students who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms will no longer be excluded from school as long as they remain symptom-free. This is a change to school district protocols put in place on Oct. 1.
These asymptomatic students can now attend/stay at school while the symptomatic sibling or family member is awaiting COVID testing, or until that person receives an alternate diagnosis. If the symptomatic family member tests positive for COVID, household members, including asymptomatic students, may be subject to quarantine orders from the local health department. The school district would continue to exclude students who are close contacts of a positive case based on the quarantine protocols set forth by the Albany County Department of Health.
It is important for families to remain vigilant when screening students each day for symptoms of COVID. Symptoms include:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
When a family member has symptoms of COVID, parents and guardians can choose to keep their asymptomatic students home. If a family does decide to send their asymptomatic child to school, school nurses will work with the family to closely monitor their student. These students will be sent home immediately if they present with any of the symptoms listed above.
The district continues to closely monitor cases in the district and in the community.
