Military Family Support

 
 
Welcome Military Families!
 
Dear Military Families,
 
On behalf of Prince George County Public Schools, I would like to welcome you to L.L Beazley Elementary School. We are excited to have your child join the Beazley Family! Here at Beazley, we understand the needs of military families, and know that transitions can be difficult. We are here to make you and your child feel welcomed and at home.
 
The Interstate Compact on Education Opportunities for Military Families provides information on transition issues that many military families may encounter. These issues include attendance, enrollment, placement and eligibility. Further, this compact proposes that most military children will attend six to nine different schools from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Our goal at Beazley is for every child to be successful! Our staff works hard to create a safe and caring environment where each child can learn and reach their potential. We want to be of assistance during the challenges of transitions in and out of our school. During your time with us, please contact us if you have questions or need assistance with anything.
 
We appreciate you entrusting your child to us. We look forward to getting to know you and partnering with you for a successful school year.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Amanda Clay, Principal
 
L L Beazley received the Purple Star Designation award for their excellence in supporting military connected children and their families.
