Other key information:
SchoolPay: The district will institute a new way to pay fees this year called SchoolPay. It has a website that requires a registration for its use. You will receive information about SchoolPay in the Back to School packet. SchoolPay can be used to pay for field trips, band fees, and P.E. uniforms. Also in this packet you will find the student verification form. Please update your emergency contacts and change any information that is outdated. The form must be signed before returning it to school.
Student Planners: This year, we are charging a five dollar fee for each Student Planner. You can also pay this fee on the SchoolPay website, once you have registered.
Lastly, for your information, Beaumont is participating in the annual Community Care Day this Saturday August 27, 2016. We are coming together to spruce up the school grounds for the first day of school. Parents, if you are available, please come share your time with us and make new friends. The event will start at 9 AM and conclude at 12 PM.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday, if not sooner on the Saturday Community Care Day!
