Friendly Reminder
Attendance is very important here at Bell Elementary School. Every day that your child misses, they are missing critical information that will enable them to meet the Common Core State Standards. We also would like to encourage parents to not check out your student early, unless it is an emergency. Teachers do begin teaching the minute the bell rings at 8:20 and will not stop until the bell rings at the end of the day at 3:00.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter!

No students will be checked out after 2:30 pm.
IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATES, District News, and Information
An individual in our community recently posted Information on Facebook alleging that a teacher at Deming High School had engaged in inappropriate behavior of a sexual nature and accused the teacher of being a pedophile. Unfortunately, social media and continued gossip therein have allowed these rumors to spread as “fact.”

The District rarely responds to gossip or interacts on social media in this manner, especially as this is a personnel matter. However, we feel it is important that our community know that all facts and circumstances related to this alleged conduct have been investigated with the assistance of the Deming Police Department. The teacher in question is innocent of all accusations of misconduct.

It is unfortunate that those responsible for sharing and spreading malicious and slanderous gossip have humiliated a trusted member of our staff. She now finds herself facing the burdensome task of repairing her professional reputation and rebuilding the trusting and respectful relationships necessary to perform her teaching duties. We will support her efforts to do so.
