I want to drive my child to and from school. When and where should I drop off/pick up?

The Drop-off and Pick-up Zone is between the two crosswalks by the front of the cafetorium. Please support the staff in directives of traffic flow before and after school. There is no supervision before 7:15 a.m. Students should sit on the bleachers outside the cafetorium until the school campus opens. Parents picking up their children at 3:15 p.m. may wait along the curb to pick up students at the front pick-up area. Parents who park in the parking lot must come get their child to assist in walking through the crosswalk. Students not picked up within ten minutes of dismissal will wait inside the office.

What do I need to do if my child will be absent from school or needs to leave early?

If your child must miss school, please call the school office on the day of his/her absence. When your child is absent from school, we require that he/she make up any missed work. Students and parents should speak with their teachers to arrange for make-up work. For our policy regarding extended absences, please see our student handbook. If your child needs to leave school early, a parent or guardian must sign out and pick him/her up at the front office.

Does Beaver Creek School have a dress code?

We expect Beaver Creek students to dress in a neat fashion that reflects the pride they have for themselves and their school. Our school board has established a dress code to help ensure an atmosphere conducive to study. It is both the child's and the parents' responsibility to ensure compliance with the dress code.

Students may not have dyed hair, piercings, or clothing that annoys, disrupts, agitates, interrupts, or interferes with others who are on the school premises for the lawful purpose of pursuing or providing a public school education. Students must follow the following guidelines:

  • Immodest or revealing clothing is inappropriate for school, as it may cause a disruption or distraction to the education process. This includes shorts and skirts that fall above the tip of the fingers. Underclothing must not be visible. No pajamas, halter tops, tube tops, “spaghetti straps,” razorback shirts, or see-through clothing.
  • Students must wear shoes or sandals at all times. We do not allow shoes that will not stay on the feet, bedroom slippers, flip flops, or roller skate shoes.
  • Blankets are not substitutes for coats or jackets.
  • Student must remove sunglasses and hats upon entering buildings.
  • No shirts or other clothing painted or written upon with inappropriate or objectionable lettering or designs.
  • No clothing, jewelry, and/or buttons condoning or promoting violence, gang membership, sex, tobacco, drugs, or alcohol.
  • The administration may choose to address the issue of unnatural hair coloring that may be disruptive to the educational process at their discretion.

If a student violates the dress code, the teacher or staff member will send the student to the dean of students, with a Level 1 referral to call home for a change of clothes. If a parent is not able to bring appropriate clothes, office staff will attempt to loan clothing to the student so he/she may attend classes. Continual infractions will result in further disciplinary action. Please note that the school dress code is in effect for all school activities.
