Woodsdale Improvements
This summer there are several cosmetic upgrades being made to the Woodsdale School, notably the back play area that students use during recess. The play area has been newly seal coated and lined, and four new basketball hoops and backboards are being installed. Thanks to all involved, especially the Highway Department, Abington Public Schools Maintenance Department, and the Jeffrey Coombs Memorial Foundation for their donation to this project!
Breakfast at BBES
Beaver Brook's breakfast will begin at 8:30 AM and ends at 9:00 AM. Guardians dropping off students for breakfast should walk their child into the cafeteria through Door B between 8:30 AM-8:45 AM. After 8:45 AM students enter school through their usual arrival doors and proceed to breakfast.

Sidewalk Advisory
Please be aware that unfavorable sidewalk conditions can occur during and after a snowstorm. Even if sidewalks have been cleaned, citizens clearing their driveways and walkways can cause sidewalks to be blocked. Melting and re-freezing of snow can also create an icing situation. Parents/guardians should always be aware of the conditions of their child's walk to school or the bus stop and act accordingly.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind parent/guardians to talk to their children, as we have at school, about the dangers of thin ice on ponds and streams in the coming months and to take the appropriate precautions.
 
Thank you for your attention to these matters as we all work together to keep the children safe.
