A Message from Our Superintendent

August 26, 2020

Dear Beaver Creek Families,

Yes! The Beaver Creek Governing Board has voted to open the school Monday, August 31. 

Yes! Your family can still do distance learning with Chromebooks. We will still post and grade class meetings and assignments in Google Classroom.

Yes! Your children can be on site for teacher led learning starting Monday. Certified paraprofessionals will be monitoring smaller groups in classrooms that have larger class sizes. 

Yes! We will have transportation. We post the bus routes on the website. We split the bus routes up to lower the number of students on the buses. We require masks on the buses. 

Yes! You can drop off your child from 7:30 to 8:15 a.m. We will have students enter through the cafeteria, grab their breakfasts, and go straight to their classrooms. We will not allow parents on the school campus at this time. Please stay in your car to drop of your children in the front of the multipurpose room. 

Yes! You can pick up your child from 3:00 to 3:15 p.m. We are still working on these details, but you will pull up in front of the school in line . The children will be in the multi-purpose areas awaiting a radio call to be picked up. Families are not allowed on campus at this time. Please stay in your cars for drop off and pick up. 

Yes! We serve meals at school. We will serve the lunches in small cohorts with disinfecting between each group. 

Yes! You can pick up meals at the school. We will post the time for meal pickup very soon! 

Yes! There will be recess. We will disinfect the equipment between each cohort.

Yes! For onsite instruction students need a mask and a water bottle. The mask will need to come back and forth with the student. We will keep the water bottle in the room and fill it daily. Please write your child’s name on each one. 

Yes! Families need to log into ParentVue to view and accept the form for family responsibilities for students on campus. At a time when so much misinformation is circulating, we want you to clearly understand your responsibilities—and our objectives—when it comes to the safety of your child, our teachers, administrators, and staff. While the form may seem long and detailed, the messages are those you’ve heard before: 

  • You must take your child’s temperature every day before school. (We consider a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher a fever.) 
  • If your child is sick, they must stay home. 
  • For safety reasons, we will not allow parents and guardians on campus past the drop-off area unless there is an emergency. 
  • If your child comes into contact with someone who may have COVID-19, or who tests positive for COVID-19, you must let us know. 

The form also confirms the school’s and district’s intent to:

  • Monitor students for symptoms that could indicate a coronavirus infection, and if they do show symptoms, to call you right away to pick them up within one hour and take them home.
  • Remain aware of changes in Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, and to follow the guidance of the CDC, the county health department, and the Arizona Department of Health Services. 

Yes! We are excited to see your children. 

Yes! We are here to answer questions and hear concerns.

All hands on deck! #creekersrock
