Please use the car pick up line or an appropriate parking spot near the school to drop off students.  Crossing Beth Ave with traffic can be dangerous and we would not want to see any unfortunate accident occur.  

Parent Communication

One of our goals is to involve parents and families in our school in every possible way. We send out periodic voice messages using the IRIS system and will also start sending email reminders and newsletters like this one.   It is critical that the contact information in the FOCUS system, also known as Parent Portal is up to date so we can get in touch with you. If you know of someone who did not receive this email, please pass this message along.  The link to parent portal is found below.  Information about using Parent Portal and creating an account can be found on the Bay District website.  www.bay.k12.fl.us

Dress Code

Please remember the dress code. Students may wear solid blue, white, or orange shirts. Beach "spirit" shirts come in a variety of colors and can be worn any day. Bottoms must be solid khaki, navyblack. Blue jeans with no holes or embellishments are permitted as well. Please remember that the length of skirts and shorts must be in compliance with Bay District Policy. The hem of the shorts and/or skirts can fall no more than 5" above the knee. Parents will be notified if their child is found to be in violation of the dress code. Repeated violations will result in disciplinary action.

Box Tops for Education

We collect Box Tops for Education at Beach Elementary and the proceeds from them support our AR Program.  The money we have received so far has supported our first Off Campus Field Trip to the Movies.  Additional funds allows us to do multiple events for our outstanding Readers.

Check our school calendar for more information about coming events.
