Bellamy 5th Graders to Be Temporarily Moved to Parsley Due to Mold in Mobile Units

Some Bellamy Elementary School fifth graders will be temporarily relocated to Parsley Elementary School starting tomorrow due to mold being found in four mobile units on Bellamy's campus. Test results came back late Tuesday afternoon and the district is taking this action as a safety measure. The mobile units will be shut down until the remediation is complete, which is expected to take up to 60 days.
"We regret any inconvenience this move may cause to the families involved; however, we are doing this in the best interest of the students," said Assistant Superintendent of Operations Bill Hance.

Beginning on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, Bellamy students from the four classes in the designated mobile units will be temporarily relocated to Parsley which is located at 3518 Masonboro Loop Road. While attending school at Parsley, the students will remain under Bellamy’s administrative supervision.
The fifth grade students will meet at Bellamy each day by 7:30 a.m. The district will transport the students to Parsley and return them to Bellamy by 2:30 p.m.

Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley said, "Our goal is to make this transition as seamless as possible, with as little interruption to educational services as possible."

There will be Parent Meetings at Bellamy on September 25, 2013 at 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to answer parents' questions and concerns on this matter. Principal Dr. Bennie Bryant, teachers and central office staff will be available to answer questions and help ensure a smooth transition. Parents may also call their child's school if they are unable to attend either meeting. Bellamy's number is (910) 350-2039.

Parsley's number is (910) 790-2355. Mrs. Robin Hamilton is principal.
