Beckman is Changing the Bell Schedule Beginning 2021-22
Here is the link to our bell schedules this year.
The schedules were designed with feedback from staff members, students, and parents. We had several things in mind when designing the schedule. Here are just a few:
1) Starting later to meet the requirements of SB 328.
2) Creating a Wednesday that “felt” similar to the break in the week we had in the hybrid model.
3) Creating a schedule that is simple, consistent, and easy to follow.
4) In case there are additional COVID related shifts, the schedule needs to be adaptable to Distance Learning if the need arises.
5) Creating time for teachers to reteach, review, and provide enrichment activities.

Safety Plan for 2021-22
Sleep and It's Impact on Mental Health
“If you had sort of a magic pill that you could take that would help increase your mental health, increase your physical health, lower your stress, make you more efficient… most people would be itching for a dose. Well, we do have that magic pill. It’s called sleep.”
Denise Pope – Challenge Success
Parents and students,
Our partnership over the last 4 years with the Challenge Success team at Stanford has led to many positive changes here on campus. Recently Denise Pope (Challenge Success founder), contributed to this article on the impacts of sleep on mental health. PLEASE take a moment to read this brief article as it contains helpful information for parents to help address teen sleep loss. At Beckman, we are trying to address the lack of sleep by working to reduce workload, addressing course overload, and adjusting our bell schedule. There is still more work to be done, but we need your help.
The last 18 months have been extremely difficult for everyone. The pandemic has left an indelible mark on communities across the world and ours is no exception. When we return to school in the fall, we expect there to be some excitement, some nerves, and some fear as well. We know that our students struggled during remote learning and as a result, we know many of our students will be coming to us with intensified mental health concerns. As this article points out, SLEEP is extremely important and will be extremely important as we move forward this year.
