A Message from Our Superintendent

March 21, 2021

Dear Creeker Families, Staff, and Community Members,

As school resumed today after Spring Break, I am incredibly grateful for the support of our staff, families, governing board members, and community this past year. We opened our doors to all students on August 31, 2020! 

Thank you families for transporting students when possible to keep the numbers down in buses, for keeping your children home when advised due to illness, for bringing the students masked to school, and for staying up on classwork on our distance learning days we had staff vaccination clinics.

To the staff, thank you for being diligent in mitigation plans, keeping the campus and buses as safe and clean as possible. Thank you for encouraging mask-wearing by students, and providing transportation, food, and lessons, and feedback for both distance and on-site students.

To our elected Governing Board members, thank you for special board meetings, for listening to the health department and school data from staff and families, for approving the updated mitigation plans when needed, and for keeping the school open for our students. These have been difficult decisions for all of you.

To the community members who continue to ask, What can we do? How can we help? Thank you. Your donation of masks, water bottles, student supplies, and donations for the food bank all have meant a lot in keeping school rolling for our students!

One last ask- if possible as you are doing your taxes consider giving the School Tax Credit to Beaver Creek School. As the world reopens for more activities, our students will benefit again from field trips and sports activities that they have missed so much last year.

If your passion is watching our students play softball, baseball, or soccer, our planning for field improvements can be a tax credit item. Just notate on your PayPal or school form, Ball Field (The Field of Dreams!).

We are so hopeful for the future of our students here in Beaver Creek. You each play part in that hopefulness. As Beaver Creek School finishes the last nine weeks of the 2020–2021 school year, I truly am indebted to all in the Beaver Creek Community.

Once a Creeker, Always a Creeker!
