One of the key dates on the school calendar is the annual Open House. Unfortunately, the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, combined with the large student populations at Independence Middle School and Bethel Park High School, necessitates that the Open House for grades 7-12 be held virtually on Wednesday, Sept. 22.
Each teacher will post a brief recorded video to discuss their class and outline their expectations for classroom behavior, assignments, and assessments. They will also provide you with information on the best ways to contact them should you have questions or need to reach them. Those links will be shared with you via email by no later than 3:30 p.m. on the day of the event.
The district believes this approach, while less than ideal, still provides families with an excellent opportunity to learn the essential information they’ll need for the school year while also ensuring the safety of all involved.
