BPMS Parent Meetings  - Thank you & Resource Sharing

Dear Beach Park Learning Community,

I want to take a moment during this very busy time of year and thank every parent for making it a priority to attend a parent meeting for our middle school.  I am holding my very last parent meeting next Tuesday, December 6, 2022.  Since holding all of the mandatory parent meetings, we have not had a single threat made at BPMS!  This was our intended outcome, so thank you for your partnership, your collaboration, and your support in ensuring the safety of our students, staff and entire learning community.

As promised, we are sharing the electronic version of the presentation we shared with you at each and every parent meeting.  Embedded in the presentation on the third to last slide is the link to fill out a Google Form if you are interested in participating in our Parent Safety Committee.  We are hopeful that many parents will want to join and have a voice in problem solving to ensure the safety of every person in our learning community.  Please complete the survey by Wednesday, December 21, 2022.  

We are also sharing resources with you on school shootings, social media sites to monitor, and articles to make conversations with your students easier.  If you need any support, please reach out, as we are a partnership, ready to support each other at school and at home.

Following our presentation to all parents, our “See something, Say something” will now be a part of the District website.  Here you can find access to the form for reporting threats anonymously.  A parent at one of our parent meetings requested we do this to make it easier for students and parents to access.  Thank you for problem solving and partnering with us; we are one learning community focused on our students and staff safety so everyone can experience success in the future.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.  I am solution minded and driven to serve our students, staff, and families in maintaining a safe and secure environment for all.    

In Partnership,

Dr. Denise Wilcox, Interim Superintendent
