Bellaire schools close due to COVID

Linda Gallagher

BELLAIRE — Mark Brenton has had an interesting two years as superintendent of Bellaire Public Schools, with the schools closed, then open to virtual learning as well as in-person learning, then a return to full time in-person school, all due to the presence of COVID-19 in the school district. Until this week. 

Once again, the Bellaire school district has closed for a week due to COVID-19. 

Last Friday, Oct. 8, the same day that a varsity football game was played against Onekama, in addition to volleyball and cross-country events held last week, Brenton announced school would be canceled on Monday for deep cleaning after two students, one from the elementary school and one from the middle/high school, were confirmed with COVID infections. 

On Monday, with information about six more "student-related" cases, the schools, including all athletics and extra-curricular activities, were closed for the week. Two staff members were identified on Tuesday as "potentially-positive."
