Step Two: Additional Required Enrollment Forms

Complete the enrollment forms below. Please return all forms as soon as possible after you Registered your child, before the end of May.

According to Colorado state law, these forms must be on file before the child’s first day of school. There is no grace period for compliance, therefore if we do not have the form on file, the child cannot attend class until we do.

Human Services requires schools to have the following  forms completed and signed for each child’s file every year prior to the child starts school:

 1. Student Information & Permission Form—This information helps the teacher get to know the students with their interests and struggles. I also provides us with your permission for: using the stairs to go to the gym; watching occasional short videos that are appropriate to the current curriculum; including your child’s name and photo in the end of year books, posting your child’s photo, in an unidentified group picture, on Bethany Busy Bee’s facebook or web site; and, provides sunscreen requirements.

It also provides the hospital authorization to treat your child should it ever be necessary.  We need a form for each school year, even if the information has not changed.  Please up-date us through the year with any changes with this form should anything change.

Step Three: Meet Your Teacher, a Home Visit and Parent-Teacher Conference

Bethany Busy Bee has the best interest of each child and works on providing the best classroom situation for every child. We work on balancing our classrooms in a variety of ways – including boys and girls, good friendships and an appropriate age range. Please know we will make every effort to honor your requests as class lists are finalized.

You will be contacted by your child’s teacher sometime in August to schedule a home visit which is the first parent-teacher conference. Visits can be scheduled either at Bethany Busy Bee or at the child’s home, so the child can meet the teacher in a comfortable setting. This visit allows the teacher to learn a bit about the child’s interests and abilities, what might be hard for them, how they are best comforted, etc. to be able to provide your child the best experience possible; and, answer questions about the beginning of school.

Bethany Busy Bee Parent Orientation is held Tuesday & Wednesday, the first day of school is Thursday & Friday after Labor Day.

Thank you for letting us serve you. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
