Information on SMS text messaging and Short Codes:
SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a "text message". Most cell phones support this type of text messaging.  Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text massaging, referred to as "short code" texting. The method is fast secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers.  If you've ever sent s text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.

Kindergarten Registration Already? YES! Starts April 15!

Fall 2019 Kindergarten registration for all Albany County schools begins on Monday, April 15th! While families can register students any time after that date, we encourage registrations as early as possible. This allows our schools to plan well for the our new group of students. If you have friends or family that will be enrolling for fall 2019, please let them know that it helps everyone to register early.

Students who will be 5 years old on or before September 15th, 2019 are eligible for Kindergarten. Wyoming law does not allow for younger students. All you need to begin the registration process is a birth certificate and a current record of immunization. Immunizations must be up to date 30 days after the first day of school. Even if yours is incomplete now, we have several months to complete any needed shots.

We ask that families begin the registration process at their neighborhood school. If you wish to request a boundary exception to another location, that can be done at your neighborhood school as well. Please contact us at Beitel (721-4436) with ANY questions about this process at ANY time! We're happy to get you the information that you need.

Considering a Kindergarten Dual Language Classroom? Apply Here:

The Albany County School District offers Dual Language Immersion (DLI) programs with an English/Spanish mix at both Spring Creek and Indian Paintbrush elementary schools. Families of incoming Kindergarten students may apply for spaces in the DLI program now through April 2nd. On April 3rd, the school district will hold a lottery for openings at each site. 

The link below takes you to the Lottery Application. If you are chosen in the lottery you are not obligated to enroll in a DLI program. However, you likely will not be able to enroll without being part of the lottery.

After School Program Changes

The Dog House GIF

For the past two school years Beitel has offered a free after school program until 4:05 each day. Changes in our funding source require us to discontinue this service as of November 20th. That's the tough news. The good news is that we will continue to offer this same after-school care program for families on a pay-for-service basis. While not free, we are able to provide low-cost after school care from Beitel staffers daily! Registration information and a Parent Contract are available at:

Parking Change on 17th Street

We have a new parking restriction at Beitel that we need to share with everyone. Based on a recommendation from the Laramie Fire Department, the area from our front door all the way to the corner of 17th and Sheridan is now a No Parking Zone. This gives sufficient space for responders and their vehicles to access our school in case of emergency. Please adjust your parking accordingly! We would hate to have you cited for not noticing the change!


Inside or Outside Recess? How Do We Decide?

When the weather turns colder Beitel starts to think about whether recess should happen indoors or outdoors. All schools in Albany County follow the same plan: When temperatures are zero or above, recess will be outside. Anything negative will be inside. Temperatures include the wind chill. At Beitel we use a weather station at the Albany County School District bus garage to give us neighborhood-specific temperatures. It's just a few miles away on Skyline Road and is often different information than what popular weather apps use. Those sources will use information from the Laramie Airport several miles outside of town. A link to the Skyline Road weather station is posted here:

Beitel Weather

Please help your student to come to school dressed for the weather! We will be outside if zero or above and inside for any negative temperatures!

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.
