The Beaver Dam School District recently had a food drive. At South Beaver Dam we decided to do a
food drive challenge with the grades. Every day Ms. White would count each item in the classrooms
and give a total the next day. SBD brought in over 600 items! Impressive!!!
Kindergarten won the challenge! They brought in over 200 items!! They get to pick a prize of their
choice. They had a jammy day, popcorn and a movie. WAY TO GO!
Thank you to all who participated, we couldn’t do it without parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles.

Dear Parents/Guardians:
Throughout the school year inclement weather conditions may arise. The decision to delay or close school is made prior to
6:00 a.m., based on district policy and procedure and the best available weather information.
Please listen to radio stations WBEV 1430AM / WXRO 95.3FM or WMDC 98FM or watch Cable TV
Channel 98 (Charter customers) or 993 (digital customers); Madison TV Channels WISC 3, WMTV 15, or WKOW 27; or Milwaukee TV Channels TMJ 4, WITI 6, WISN 12, or WDJT 58 for the latest weather related announcements. Weather-related announcements will also be posted on the front page of the district's website and on and Most television stations also post school closings on their individual websites.
If you feel the weather conditions pose an undue risk for your child, you are encouraged to use your own judgment in making
a decision whether or not to send your child to school.
First and Foremost: You Make the Call
You are always the best judge of your own situation and what is best for your child. If school is held, and you find it is safer for
your child to stay home or report late, we will strongly support your decision. The district makes a decision prior to 6:00 a.m.
about what is best for all students and staff and that decision may not fit your individual situation.
Closing Due to Snow and Ice
The district reviews the weather conditions with Weather Central in Madison and with the bus transportations company. Safety is always our top priority. Whether or not the conditions will be improving throughout the day is also considered.
Closing Due to Extreme Cold
When the wind chill reaches dangerous levels, school may be delayed or canceled depending on the duration of the conditions. It is important to have your child dressed appropriately for all weather conditions.
Early Dismissal
Early dismissal is not an option we like to use unless conditions are expected to get worse throughout the day. This is primarily
due to the fact that many parents work and the children are safer at school. Please try to have a plan in place to handle late
starts and early dismissals. It is helpful if your child is aware of the plan.
Your Understanding and Cooperation is Appreciated
For every person who is happy with a weather-related decision, there is someone who is unhappy. We appreciate your understanding of the difficulties and the timing of our decision. Your support in helping your child get to and from school safely on
winter days is sincerely appreciated.

Estimados Padres:
A través del año escolar las condiciones atmosféricas pueden incrementar. La decisión de retrasar o cancelar la escuela se tomara
antes de las 6:00 de la mañana y será basada en la póliza del distrito en la mejor información disponible del tiempo.
Por favor escuche la estación de radio WBEV 1430AM / WXRO 95.3FM o WMDC 98FM o vea el canal de televisión 98 (clientes de
Charter) o 993 (clientes digitales); canales de Madison WISC 3, WMTV 15, o WKOW 27; o los canales de Milwaukee TMJ 4, WITI 6,
WISN 12, o WDJT 58 para las recientes informaciones relacionadas con el tiempo. Anuncios relacionados con el clima también se
publicarán en la página principal de sitio web del distrito y en y La mayoría de las estaciones de televisión también posterior cierre de escuelas en sus sitios de web individuales.
Si usted cree que las condiciones atmosféricas plantean un riesgo indebido para su niño, use su propio juicio y tome la decisión
de enviar o no enviar su hijo a la escuela. Aquí le mandamos algunas recordatoria sobre el cambio del tiempo.
Sobre todo: Usted decide primero
Ustedes son los mejores jueces para decidir lo mejor para su niño. Si hay escuela pero usted siente que es mas seguro de que su
hijo permanezca en el hogar o esperar un poco mas tarde, nosotros los apoyaremos en su decisión. El distrito tomara una decisión antes de las 6:00 de la mañana pensando en lo mejor para todos los estudiantes y los empleados, esa decisión puede que no
encaje con su situación individual.
Cerrado por causa de la nieve o hielo
El distrito repasa las condiciones atmosféricas con la central del tiempo de Madison. Nos ponemos en contacto con la compañía
de autobuses, así como los individuales que viven en diferentes partes del distrito y tienen que conducer temprano en la mañana. La seguridad es siempre nuestra prioridad principal. Si las condiciones del tiempo van a mejorar durante el día esto será
tomado en consideración.
Debido a un frío extremado
Cuando la frialdad del viento alcanza los 35 grados debajo del nivel cero para todo el día, generalmente no habrá escuela durante
todo el día. Si se espera que las condiciones mejoren durante el día, la escuela posiblemente no cerrara. Es muy importante que
usted se asegure que su niño esta abrigado para las condiciones del tiempo.
Cancelar la escuela temprano
El cancelar la escuela temprano no es una opción que tenemos el gusto de utilizar a menos que se espere que las condiciones
empeoren a lo largo del día. Esto es sobre todo debido al hecho de que muchos padres trabajan y los niños están más seguros en
la escuela. Por favor tenga un lugar donde su niño pueda ir en caso de que la escuela empezara mas tarde o se cancela temprana.
Es beneficioso para su niño que sepa de este plan.
Su Comprensión y Cooperación es Apreciada
Por cada persona que esta contenta con la decisión tomada relacionada con el tiempo, hay otra persona que no lo esta. Nosotros
apreciamos su compresión en la dificultad en tomar una decisión en un tiempo sincronizado. Su apoyo en ayudar a su niño a ir a
la escuela y volver a casa si ningún incidente es sinceramente apreciado.

Positive Parenting Info:
The Internet has drastically changed the way that children interact with the world. They have access to in-depth
knowledge, tools to express their creativity, and people from all over the world. Yet along with offering a fascinating, new way to connect with the world, the Internet also offers new risks:
*Exposure to inappropriate material
*Online predators
*Revealing too much personal information
Learning to recognize the warning signs of these risks will allow trusted adults to intervene and lessen potential
negative impacts. By acting as a resource, parents and guardians can help make the Internet a safer place for
their families. As a parent or guardian, you should stay well-informed about current issues to understand what
your children are experiencing on and off the Internet. If they are social networking, instant messaging, using
webcams, or blogging, help them use these tools safely by learning how to use them yourself. Children whose
parents and guardians regularly talk to them about personal safety are more likely to exhibit responsible behavior
on their own. Please take time to review the following handouts on Protecting Your Kids Online.

Información acerca de la Crianza Positiva de los Hijos:
El Internet ha cambiado drásticamente la forma en que los niños interactúan con el mundo. Ellos tienen acceso a un conocimiento
profundidad, herramientas para expresar su creatividad, y la gente de todo el mundo. Sin embargo, junto con ofrecer una fascinante y nueva manera de conectar con el mundo, Internet también ofrece nuevos riesgos.
Acoso Cibernético
La Exposición a Material Inapropiado
Depredadores en Línea
Revelar demasiada información personal
Aprender a reconocer las señales de advertencia de los riesgos permitirá a adultos de confianza para intervenir y disminuir los
posibles impactos negativos. Al actuar como un recurso, los padres y los tutores pueden ayudar a hacer de Internet un lugar más
seguro para sus familias. Como padre o tutor, debe mantenerse bien informado sobre temas de actualidad para entender lo que
sus hijos están experimentando dentro y fuera del Internet. Si son las redes sociales, mensajería instantánea, uso de webcams, o
blogs, ayudarles a utilizar estas herramientas de manera segura por aprender a usar su propia cuenta. Los niños cuyos padres y
tutores hablar regularmente con ellos acerca de la seguridad personal son más propensos a exhibir un comportamiento responsable por su propia cuenta. Por favor, tómese tiempo para revisar los siguientes folletos sobre la protección de sus hijos en línea.
