Beacon Heights Halloween Parade Information

Wednesday, October 31 at 9:00 am

Inviting all ghosts, goblins and ghouls to our annual Halloween parade on Wednesday, October 31, at 9:00 am.  Weather permitting, the parade will take place outdoors.  We encourage parents to find a spot along the parade route to watch students parade by.  Let your neighbors know!   As a reminder, here are our guidelines for wearing costumes to school:  Masks are allowed in the parade but need to be removed after the parade.  No look-alike weapons or items that replicate shooting are allowed at all, even if it is part of a student’s costume.  These include but are not limited to plastic guns, plastic swords, plastic Ninja weapons, etc.  No blood and gore costumes.  If you have any questions about your student’s costume, please talk with your student’s teacher.  After the parade, students will return to their classrooms and teachers will let them know what the rest of the day’s activities will entail.

New Front Door Procedure

Do you lock your front door when you are home?  I think most of us would agree, we do.  Beginning next Monday, September 10, Beacon Heights will begin locking our front door.  Just like your house, we ask that you ring our doorbell.  Ms. Melissa, Ms. Maggie or I will answer as quickly as possible.  Just like home, there might be something happening inside that delays answering the door immediately, but we will answer as quickly as possible.  We hope that you will not think this an obstacle, an unfriendly gesture, but a precaution we would like to put into place to make your child and our staff as safe and comfortable as we can. 

You will be greeted and asked how we can help you.  All you need to do is identify yourself and your purpose.  A simple response such as, “I’m Rae Louie, here to pick up my son for a dentist appointment,” is perfect.  We will then unlock the door for your entry.  We ask that you enter the office and check in on the computer if you are a visitor, or check out your student on the computer while we call your student to the office.  Although at first glimpse, you may feel this is inconvenient, we hope you will understand our intentions are strictly to implement an additional safety procedure.  In order to make this procedure the least intrusive on your schedule, please add 5 extra minutes to your schedule to ensure that you make it to your appointment on time.

All of our check in and check out procedures remain the same, so when you return, use the bell and proceed as usual to the office.

Thank you so much for understanding our new procedure! 

Rae Louie, Principal
