Are you Moving? Are you attending Bethke on a Bonafide?

If you are attending Bethke on a Bonafide residence form, you should receive an email asking you to complete that paperwork again for next year. It is important for that to be provided in order for your student to be listed on a class list. You must have a current proof of residence. Please contact Mrs. Suarez if you have any questions.

Also, if you are moving, please let Mrs. Suarez know and she will be sure they receive your student's records.

After 8:20?

If your student arrives after 8:20, we ask you to park and walk them into the school to get a tardy slip. This is for your student's safety. Also remember that students should not be dropped off in the parking lot, only in the drop off lane. Again, this is to keep all of our students safe, and we appreciate you following those procedures.


We've noticed quite a few parents dropping off students in the front parking lot instead of going through the car rider line. Remember, if you are not walking in with your student, you should go through the car rider line. Dropping students off in the front parking lot is a serious safety concern. Our car rider line moves very quickly in the morning and is the safest way to get your student into the school. Thank you for following this request.
