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
New BCMS Online Attendance Form
BCMS families will now have an easier and more efficient way to report student absences at the middle school.
The school is introducing a new Google Form to replace phone calls and handwritten notes from parents. The new online form is designed to streamline the user experience and help the school track attendance data in a more uniform way.
The new form is for middle school families only. If your middle school student is going to be absent from school for any reason you should notify the school on the day of the absence. The online form is for non-COVID absences only.
What types of absences should be reported on the new form?
Dismissal from school (ex. Medical appointments during the school day)
Tardy to school
Learning remotely when your child is scheduled to be in-person

Weather closures and delays: 2020-21
Looking ahead to winter weather, the Bethlehem Central School District wants students, staff and families to know how the district will handle weather-related closures and delays in the 2020-21 school year.
As in past years, schools will be closed when snow or poor road conditions make travel difficult or impossible. There will be no classes — in-person or virtual — on these snow days.
However, if there are more snow days used this winter than the academic calendar allows it may become necessary to use these days for virtual instruction. If the district does exceed its allotted number of snow days, families would be notified in advance that subsequent snow days will include virtual instruction.
