Parents: Are You Part of An IEP Team?

If you are part of an IEP team, please consider taking with brief survey from the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE).

WDE is looking for provider input as to how IEP teams determine whether a student should take the WY-TOPP or the WY-ALT assessment.  The active link is pasted below:

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!

Have You Heard About the Hathaway Scholarship?

The Hathaway Scholarship makes a college education both affordable and possible for Wyoming high school graduates. It's an enormous benefit of being a resident of our great state.
