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

The Beacon Heights Library is excited to host our First Annual Unusual Reading Spot Contest!  Students have their picture taken while reading in an unusual place or pose and enter their picture in our school-wide contest. Students might be found reading in a tree, near an important landmark, in a basketball hoop, or any place your imagination takes you. Our students read EVERYWHERE!
