A Message from Our Superintendent

Dear Beaver Creek Families,

We are saddened by Governor Ducey’s announcement that schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year. Our lives are brightened by working with children and not seeing them daily is sacrifice.

At this time we are still committed to making sure students have access to food and educational opportunities. We are continuing delivery via bus stops on the same schedule as the past week. We are also adding drive-up service in the parent pick-up lane in front of the cafeteria beginning on March 31 from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m., Monday through Thursday.

Teachers and paraprofessionals are available to all students and parents via Class Dojo. Please stay connected with them about your concerns. If your child has missed school work, please connect with the teachers so they can support you in sorting out the most important pieces to focus on so that he or she does not get overwhelmed. Our staff are committed to reducing stress for families.

We have decided to grade students based on completion and effort. Teachers will be issuing grades as follows:

E = Excellent
S = Satisfactory
N = Needs Improvement
U = Unsatisfactory

We still have many details to work out as things are changing on a daily basis. Some conversations we are having as a leadership team and faculty include:

  • We are still going to create yearbooks, and you will have an opportunity to order one.
  • 8th grade promotion is of high importance to all of us. We are examining what options are available to us. It is important to us that we honor all of the hard work our 8th graders and their families have put into their tenure here at Beaver Creek School.
  • The sports awards event will likely take place using a teleconferencing system.
  • We are also discussing the end-of-year awards assembly, and we are thinking about options.
  • We know many of your children have personal belongings at the school, and we are deliberating on the safest method of returning them to families.

Many other conversations are happening. If you have questions or ideas for us, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are full of hope for our future and time traveling to the fall when we will once again be united in our school setting. Please be sure you are taking care of yourselves. You and your children are critical in the well-being of our community.
