A special thanks to the Mrs. Melissa McConaghy (PE Teacher)

A note from Principal Dr. Stephanie Demming
Dear Beaumont Families,
Beaumont truly values its volunteers, and they support a variety of school programs and events. The District has revised the policies and regulations related to volunteer clearances in relation to current state law. Here is the District's regulation #1300 "Volunteers"
. In this regulation, you will find many details about the parameters for which types of volunteers need to have clearances on file and which do not.
• At the elementary level, all field trip chaperones/volunteers will need to have their clearances on file.
• Generally, classroom party or classroom volunteers do NOT need to have clearances.
• No clearances are required for volunteers at HSA/PTO events or programs.
Again, please see the attachment
and the link to the T/E Human Resources Department
for more information and how to send in your clearances.

RETURN ALL LIBRARY BOOKS
A note from Beaumont Librarian, Mrs. Porsche Davis-Taylor: Please return all library books. To encourage students to have all of their books returned, they will have an opportunity to win a Barnes and Noble gift card. Once a student has returned all of their books, they will write their name on a ticket and put it in the jar that corresponds to their grade. On Monday, June 13, one ticket will be chosen from each jar and that student will win a gift card. For questions, contact Mrs. Taylor.
