SAFETY DRILL: In our ongoing practices designed to keep students and staff safe, we conducted campus-wide intruder drills this afternoon in cooperation with Beaverton City Police. After the simulation, teachers and students discussed different scenarios and potential actions that could be taken in the event of an actual incident. As campus safety and security plans continue to evolve, rest assured we’ll always make it a point to keep the community informed and involved. #Safety+Security

URGENT: UNFORSEEN EARLY RELEASE - Good morning, Beaverton family. Due to a boiler malfunction at Beaverton Elementary causing unacceptable temperatures in classrooms and offices, all students in grades K through 12 will be released early today - BES students at 12:15 p.m. and BJSHS students at 12:30 p.m.
Please make appropriate arrangements to ensure your child is either picked up at school at that time or any necessary childcare is arranged for their arrival home via bus shortly after that release time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes your family and expect to have the issue resolved later this afternoon.
