ConnectEd Call Message: August 2, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.

Good Evening Beachland Families, this is Principal Rachel Finnegan. I want to welcome you and your family to the FINTASTIC 2020-2021 school year... Happy August! Every Sunday I will send a ConnectED call home at 6PM for all students of Beachland Elementary regardless of your Instructional Choice Option. This way you are receiving information about our school community, expectations, happenings, and special dates. If there is specific information for Option 1, 2, or 3, you will receive a separate call. If my call goes to your voicemail and there are technical difficulties, I will post the Connected message on Facebook, Twitter, and our school website. I would like to remind all families the FIRST day of school for all students (regardless of instructional choice will be Monday, August 24th).

Tonight's message is about school supplies, dress code, SPECIFIC orientations, and places you can find up-to-date information.

Beachland Elementary School Supplies for all options are available at local stores, on our school website, on Facebook, and will be available at orientation.

Beachland Elementary requires a uniform for all students attending for face-to-face instruction. Our dress code is available on our school website, Facebook, and a hard copy will be available at orientation.

Option 1 students, who are physically attending Beachland Elementary will have orientation on August 13th and August 14th. Your child's teacher will be in contact with you the week of August 10th. You will have the option of coming into the school building. We are encouraging one adult per family and your school-age child to visit your child's teacher and your child's classroom. More information will be provided Sunday, August 9th.

Option 2 and 3 students, students who are participating in transitional or virtual learning. There will be a virtual orientation scheduled for your children on August 18th and August 19th. Your child's transitional or virtual teacher will be making contact with you prior to those dates.

We understand you may have numerous questions and hope our school website - bes.indianriverschools.org, our Facebook Pages - Beachland Elementary PTA or request to be my friend - Rachel Finnegan Principal, or Twitter - @Beachland_ES. Parents you may also call my office directly at 772-564-3335 or text me directly at 772-302-0664. I do my best to respond as promptly as possible and within 24 hours. If you do not hear from me within 24 hours, please be sure reach out to me again. Your request, question, concern, or need will never go unnoticed.

As we begin a school year unlike no other, I want to assure you your child will receive an optimal education (regardless of their option) in a safe and healthy environment. We will work together to be proactive, listen to your ideas or concerns, and continue to make Beachland Elementary a successful RIDE for your child's educational journey.

With that I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I wish you a FIN-tastic evening.
