Our school day will be extended by a few minutes beginning next Monday, April 12.

The new schedule will look like this:

Current Dismissal: Starting April 12th:
A-L 2:30 New Time: 2:45
M-Z 2:40 New Time: 2:50
Bus/Van 2:50 New Time: 3:00

 

Even though our survey support for this change was overwhelmingly in favor, we know that there are a few families that will struggle with the adjustment. If this is you, please contact your teacher or me directly. We have options within this schedule that can help. 

A quick note about schedules:

Several of you have asked about adding time to our morning rather than the afternoon dismissal. If this were possible we would certainly be looking to do so. Our morning drop-off is integrated into other district systems. Afternoons are more independent and make it possible for us to make Beitel-only changes.

ACSD1 and Beitel Remain Safe and Open

News from Albany County and around the nation is not good on the Covid-19 front. What does this mean for our school and school district?

Right now, school buildings are the safest places for students and staff in the county. It is true that the school district has experienced positive cases and numerous exposures leading to quarantine among staff and students. To date, however, none of these has been linked to spread in a school building. Each has been linked to community spread in one form or another. Given this, we believe that keeping schools open as much and as long as possible is the safest and best course moving forward. 

ACSD1 employs a regimen of hand washing, sanitizing, masks, and social distancing that exceeds CDC and Wyoming Department of Health guidelines. This has greatly reduced risk and allowed us to remain in session since August. 

Bottom line: ACSD1 and Beitel Elementary remain safe and open!


White Cane Awareness Day Governor's Proclamation Video

Governor Mark Gordon has proclaimed October 15th White Cane Awareness Day in Wyoming! He joined Beitel students at a socially-distanced assembly at Washington Park to sign the official proclamation. Governor Gordon then joined our Bulldogs in a white cane walk around the park.

Many thanks go to the Beitel staff and volunteers for the planning, preparation, and on-site support of this event!

Why We Come To Work Each Day

 

Beitel’s Mission:

All Beitel students will reach high standards and leave prepared with knowledge, skills, and abilities to succeed at the next level.

What is a mission? For the adults at Beitel Elementary School, it's the reason why we come to work each day. It's why we exist. It's why you see cars in our "parking lot" late in the evening and throughout the weekend. We work hard to make this statement true for all of our young Bulldogs year after year. Our mission helps us to define what we should do and, often, what we choose not to do. Thank you for helping to make our mission possible.

Virtual Transition Planning

working bulldog

Since early August the Albany County School District has been planning how to serve kids totally digitally. Should our school or our entire system need to make this switch we want families to be ready as well. We've created several presentations to share many of the big details about Classroom Based Virtual Instruction (CBVI) in Albany County. Please note that there are no current plans to go totally virtual. However, we are ready to do so if needed.

Listed below are presentations shared in November and December about our virtual plans and ways to support you and your student(s) should that ever happen. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or thoughts about what you see.
