Educating the Students of the Verde Valley Since 1881

Welcome to the online home of Beaver Creek School District, where we are proud to educate Verde Valley’s public school students from preschool through middle school. Here, under the guidance of our supportive, highly trained educational team, our students build a solid foundation of educational experiences that will help prepare them for high school and beyond. 

Important Message For Beaver Creek Families 

Dear Families,

On Friday April 20, 2018, you should have received a phone call from Principal Sacco concerning the #RedforEd movement and a possible statewide walk out by school employees. We have met as school leaders and have found that we do not have enough staff to keep the school open on April 26. This is true for school districts throughout the state. 

Beaver Creek School will be closed on April 26.

  • Students and families will not have access to buildings or fenced areas.  This includes after school gym facility usage.
  • Preschool will not be open as it is a district preschool.
  • Extracurricular student programming (including clubs, activities, performances, celebrations, field trips) will be suspended and may be rescheduled if time permits.
  • Single-day field trips will be suspended.
  • All pre-k 8 transportation services will be suspended. We are awaiting Camp Verde and Mingus High School decisions for high school transportation.
  • If the work stoppage continues, 21st Century will be closed on Friday, April 27.
  • Unless the work stoppage is still in force, to make up this Thursday’s loss of instructional time, the school day will be made up on Friday, May 4 from 7:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. If further instructional hours are needed, a plan will be sent out as soon as possible. 
  • Students will be offered additional food from our School Food Pantry on Wednesday. Also we have some emergency food boxes from the community pantry if your family needs additional food. Please contact Ori or Lyndel at the front desk.

The statewide walk out does not have an end date scheduled. Therefore it is very important that you have updated phone information at the school. We will be sending daily updates on School Messenger. 

We are concerned about how this stoppage affects everyone in our community, mostly our students. However, the possible thought of much needed additional funding to schools in Arizona will support our children so much more.

 Please stay in touch with Principal Sacco and myself if you would like to talk about the situation.  

Mrs. Katrina Sacco, Principal
Mrs. Karin Ward, Superintendent
