Governor Hochul signed a law requiring schools to be closed on the Lunar New Year. This will impact school calendars for the 2024-2025 school year. Just a reminder, the BCSD will be closed for Eid al Fitr on April 10, 2024, which is not a state requirement but was a local calendar decision.

Security Reminders for our Large Athletic Events This FallPosted by Victoria Jackson on 9/13/2023
Dear Beacon Community,
I want to remind the community of our security procedures for outdoor/nighttime athletic events. Having these nighttime events is very important to us and we love providing a place for our students and the community to cheer on our student-athletes and also hang out with each other. We have always developed and implemented strong security plans for these events in collaboration with the Beacon Police Department and our own security staff, administrators, and teacher chaperones. Last year, we developed these security procedures and we will continue with them this year as well. These changes are not in response to any specific Beacon-related concern but instead are an attempt to be proactive.
We are implementing the following measures for our large gathering, outdoor events.
- All attendees at these events are subject to a handheld metal detector security wand implemented by our security personnel. This measure is in place in many local schools at their events and also at professional athletic events, concerts, etc.
- We ask that bags and backpacks not be brought into the event. In the event that a bag cannot be placed back in a vehicle, it is subject to a brief inspection by our security team.
- Single point of entry to our events. Once you leave, you cannot reenter the event.
- No pets or animals are allowed (except certified service animals).
We will have these measures in place at the following events:
9/14 V Football v. Burke (530pm)
9/21 JV Football v. Goshen (430pm) & V Girls Soccer v. Haldane (630pm)
9/29 V Football v. Saugerties (530pm)
10/3 V Girls Soccer v. O'Neill (430pm) & Fall Sports Recognition (630pm)
10/6 V Football v. New Paltz (530pm)
10/12 JV Football v. Cornwall (430pm) & V Boys Soccer v. O'Neill (630pm)
I hope to see you at these events!
