Dear Beach Middle Families,
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. The countdown to Spring Break has begun.
Just a reminder that students will have early dismissal on Friday, April 2. We will begin dismissing walkers and parent pick up students at 1:53. I have attached the adjusted dismissal schedule below. The current grading period will end on April 14th. Students should ensure they get all late and make up work completed this week so as to have a relaxing vacation. We will also have an early dismissal day the week we return (April 14). The same schedule will be followed.
Information regarding SOL's was sent via AlertNow this past week. Please check your email if you haven't yet completed the survey. The survey was only sent to Option 1 students who opted out of SOL's for Term One and all Option 2 students.
Thank you for your continued support of Beach Middle. Have a Super Week!

If you are an OPTION 2 and ordered pictures you may pick them up beginning Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from the security desk from 9am-4pm. Any questions, please call Mr. Fox at 757-648-5071.
