Superintendent's Corner

Good Afternoon Beverly Parents and Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It is my great pleasure to welcome both new and 
returning families to the district! We cannot wait to greet your children on opening day to start the new school year. All students in Grades 1-9 will return to school for a full day on Wednesday, August 30, 2023 while students in Grades 10 - 12 will participate in a Virtual School Day on Wednesday, August 30, 2023 and report to classes on Thursday, August 31st. Our Kindergarten students will attend an Orientation at their respective schools prior to the start of their first official day on Wednesday, September 6th. Finally, our youngest students in PreK will also have their first official day on Wednesday, September 6th. Whether your child is entering our schools for the first time or embarking on their Senior year, we are looking forward to welcoming them back as they explore their new classrooms and discover the exciting learning adventures their teachers have in store for them. The start of the new school year is truly one of the most exhilarating times of the year! 

As we prioritize the safety and well-being of all students, we kindly request your cooperation in updating your child's information for any potential health or safety emergencies.  To begin the process, it is essential that all parents and guardians have an Aspen Family Portal account and are able to sign in.  If you do not have an account or have trouble signing in, please contact the Main Office at your child’s school for assistance.  

On Monday, August 28th, you will receive an email titled "Important: Verify your student's information and acknowledge forms." This email will contain instructions on how to access our Contact Verification portal. Through this portal, you will provide any necessary updates to your child's information and review/acknowledge various district policies and procedures.  The information you provide for our health team is required for all students. This process replaces the old “First Day Packets” that many of you may remember from previous years.  It is essential that every parent/guardian updates the information in the portal for each of your students.  We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring the safety and well-being of all our students.

As alway, thank you for the trust you have placed in us and in our partnership as we work together to educate your child.  I hope that you have the chance to enjoy the last few days of summer!
