Wildcats' Watch


It's GAME Time!!!

Happy September! I am very proud of the Beveridge students and teachers for all they have done to start out the school year strong. Our teachers have been working hard to get to know all of their new students and have already begun looking at student data to help them understand every child's specific needs.

As we go throughout the year, you will receive updates from your child's teacher frequently. In addition, this monthly newsletter will be on our school’s webpage. Sunday evening robocalls with specific information will be sent, as well. We strive to communicate the information that we know you'll need. You can also watch the news updates on our school’s Class Dojo page or on our Facebook page. As always, feel free to contact your child's teacher or the main office if there is other information that you need from us.

We are excited for another amazing year of learning and growing for all of our students!

Attendance Matters

Your child’s attendance is one of the most important indicators of academic success. Although we know that there are definitely days when your child/children may be sick and need to stay home, we want to encourage students to be at school every day when they are well. When students are at school, they are always learning. Teachers are instructing from the minute your child enters the classroom until the time they pack up and leave for dismissal. The engaging learning that is taking place in the classroom can’t be re-created once your child returns to school. Students who attend school every day are more likely to have higher grades and score higher on classroom assessments. Again, we know that there are going to be times that your child/children must miss school and we understand this but wanted to make you aware of how attendance may impact your child’s success.

Some of the things that you can do to help support attendance are:

  • Schedule all doctor’s appointments outside of the school day, if at all possible.

  • Share with your child how important it is to be at school all day, every day.

  • Make sure to communicate absences in advance when you know about them ahead of time, so the classroom teacher can better plan for helping your child learn any content missed during the absence.

Help make sure that your child arrives at school on time each day. The doors open at 7:50 am and students need to be seated in their classroom each morning by 8:10 am or they are counted tardy.

Working with your child/children each day is a pleasure. We want to make the most of each and every minute we have with your child.

Parents, please remember to check with the nurse to be sure that your child has the required immunizations and/or provide proof that your child already has received the required vaccination(s) for school.

If you do not provide proof that your child has received the required immunizations , he/she will NOT be allowed to attend school after September 9, 2021.

If your child has received the required immunizations, please provide the school nurse with documentation as soon as possible to avoid exclusion.

If you need support to acquire needed immunizations, please contact any of the agencies below that offer immunizations. Families are required to provide:

  • Child’s current his/her immunization record

  • Insurance card

Please return a copy of the student’s immunization record to the school immediately. Please call your school’s health office or principal at (219) 321- 8546 with any questions.

Also, parents please remember to send your child to school in the morning with a clean and well-fitting facemask. Face Masks are REQUIRED for students to be in the building and not optional.
