New Developments in COVID-19:
Pediatric Inflammatory Multisystem Syndrome – Rare, but Concerning
The coronavirus has largely spared children. Most confirmed to be infected have had only mild symptoms, but pediatricians across the world have recently started to alert epidemiologists to cases of a new disease preliminarily named Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome, which is likely related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Parents need to be aware of this syndrome; however, they do not need to panic.
Symptoms can include fever, rash, reddish eyes, swollen lymph nodes and sharp abdominal pain. They do not usually include two common hallmarks of Covid-19: cough and shortness of breath.  The syndrome can bear some resemblance to a rare childhood illness called Kawasaki disease, but as doctors learn more, they are emphasizing that the two conditions are not the same.
What is Remdesivir?  Remdesivir doesn’t cure coronavirus.  The experimental drug, which may speed up recovery from a COVID-19 infection, may be the best treatment we have against a virus that’s on a global rampage.  Late last week, the FDA authorized emergency use (AEU) of the antiviral drug, however no drugs are currently FDA-approved for treating COVID-19, and Remdesivir will still need formal approval. The move for AEU came on the heels of preliminary results from a clinical trial that found patients treated with Remdesivir had a 31 percent faster recovery than those who received a placebo. Average recovery was shortened to 11 days from 15 days, and the drug also slightly decreased the likelihood of dying from COVID-19.
Supply of Remdesivir is limited, and its currently reserved for the sickest COVID-19 patients – those with blood oxygen levels at or below 94 percent and who require supplemental oxygen.  The White House and FEMA have stepped in to help coordinate distribution.

Books!

Dear Neighbors
“This is an email from our Beaver Creek Librarians about finding books to read that are out in the little lending libraries within our Rimrock/Lake Montezuma/McGuireville community.  These are the ones that were originally sponsored by the Friends of Beaver Creek Library.  Folks visiting the little libraries should gather items wearing kitchen dishwashing gloves or other gloves, place them in bags and quarantine the items for 3 days, then put on gloves again and wipe the items off with lysol sprayed on a paper towel or disinfecting wipes containing alcohol.  We are quarantining books in the library in this way.”
from Stuart, Lora and Beth -The Beaver Creek Librarians miss our patrons and remind everyone to ‘social distance, wash hands and stay healthy!’.”
The Beaver Creek Adult Center library is open from 9 AM to Noon, Monday through Friday.  Gloves and wipes are available to use and anyone is welcome to borrow books or movies.

Some Events Postponed, BC School classes closed until 3/27

Dear Neighbors
 
The Calendar Crew is trying to keep pace with the postponements of services, school dates and special activities. However, these changes are happening so quickly we feel that the calendar may often be inaccurate. Please phone or email to check availability before driving or walking and being disappointed.
Beaver Creek School has classes closed until March 27 (see details below) and Tax Aide appointments have been suspended for two weeks. The Grand Ole Opry Tribute Show has been rescheduled to September 13 (ticket refund info below). Trek for Tech and Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club Fundraiser Spring Tea have been postponed.
Postponed?  Call first.
We don’t know if the Beaver Creek Public Library is open or if the Arizona Archeology and Heritage events are still scheduled at Montezuma Well, Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot. We have listed some scheduled events and activities below but are uncertain about their occurrence. Please use contact information where available before heading out. As far as we know, the Verde Valley Cleanup (annual FREE DUMPING) is still happening as scheduled. The Spring Creek Ranch zoning change request is back before the Planning & Zoning Commission on Thursday. Meeting still scheduled at this time.
Now the good news! Edward Borowski has joined the Beaver Creek School Board replacing recently retired Betty Hart. We’ve lost a good board member, but Betty found an outstanding replacement to carry on her community representation. The Census 2020 has begun (see below) and is planning on continuing at this time. On Wednesday, at the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will present Beaver Creek School with its fourth Gold Plate Award for food Safety. At the same meeting, the BOS will award both Beaver Creek School and Beaver Creek Transit checks from the Yavapai-Apache Prop 202 funds.
Free food will still be plentiful in Beaver Creek. The monthly food bank was held at BC School this Saturday. The Bread of Life Food Popup will be in the parking lot of Beaver Creek Baptist Church on Monday, 3/23, from 9:45 to 10:45 AM. The tables will display for your selection: meat, eggs, milk, juice, bread, fruits & vegetables as well as a few other items. Every Wednesday from 12:30 to 1:30 PM many food items are available at the Kiwanis Clothes Closet and Beaver Creek Transit still delivers food once a week.
Wishing everyone the best

BEAVER CREEK SCHOOL

Subject: Community Letter School Closure
March 15, 2020
Dear Beaver Creek Families,
I write to you today about COVID-19 which is the most serious and unprecedented matter we face in our country right now.  Although here in the Verde Valley there are NO reported cases as of Sunday, March 15, 2020, the opportunity for spread into our communities has heightened after the Spring Break around the Verde Valley.  Many of us have traveled both in the US and out of the country. People easily could have been exposed to COVID 19. There is a 2 to 14 day incubation period of COVID 19.
Therefore I have made the decision to close Beaver Creek School District for the next two weeks through March 27th, 2020.  This came after many conversations the last 48 hours with other superintendents and the County Health Department.
On Monday, March 16, the Beaver Creek School teaching staff will be working on developing on-line learning plans for the students.
The cafeteria staff and bus staff will work with me on food deliveries near bus stops in the community.
As you know, information is coming at all of us quickly. Stay in touch through the school website, DOJO, enews, and School Messenger for updates.
Know that this decision was incredibly difficult for me as I want our children and staff safe. We had prepared classrooms last week for the students’ return.. But the unknown is complex for all of us. To protect the most vulnerable, we hope that closing the school will avoid a community spread of COVID 19.
Remember to teach your children to cover their coughs and sneezes with their elbow or a tissue.  Everyone wash your hands often! And if you have a fever quarantine and seek medical advice
Please reach out to me with any concerns or questions
Hopeful for the future!
Karin Ward Superintendent

November News 11/21/2019

Dear Neighbors
The Calendar Crew hopes that everyone has enjoyed receiving 2+ inches of rain in about 40 hours. Quite unusual for this time of year and much needed. Thank you to Yavapai County Area Roads for arranging and delivering sand and bags to our two pick up locations so promptly which helped residents who had to prepare for any water runoff onto their properties.  Looks like more rain today but clearing for Friday afternoon and the weekend.
This afternoon is the annual meeting for Friends of Beaver Creek Library. If you have suggestions or just want to come say thank you to those who work so hard on your behalf, please come to the Beaver Creek School Board Room. Also, this evening is another fine opportunity to visit merchants on Beaver Creek Rd for the Third Thursday Merchant Walk. On Friday afternoon there is a fundraiser Afternoon Tea held for the projects of the Beaver Creek Preservation & Historical Society at the former home of Verna Shafer. Verna is the “godmother” of Sycamore Park and many other quality of life improvements for our community. Please help out by purchasing a ticket even if you can’t come to see her beautiful home.
Also upcoming is Toddler Story Time, Smart Devices Help and a Free Yoga class. All the details are below. This weekend the National Park Service continues its celebration of Native American Heritage at Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot.
The tremendously good news from Yavapai Apache Transit is that their Beaver Creek and Verde Lakes service routes will formally open for our business on December 9. The shuttle bus driver will have schedules which are being printed at this time. Our three Yavapai Apache Transit heroes and their intern are in the photo. This project began with a gleam and a wish from their hearts six years ago. Most of us will never know the hard work and effort from them that has achieved this benefit for so many!!!!
On another note, Rimrock LLC, has submitted a change to their proposed rezoning for the Rimrock Peaks Estate. The significant change is putting the entrance opposite Brockett Ranch Rd and omitting the entrance at Bice Rd. BCCA is sponsoring the public participation (for the change only) on Monday, December 9, at 6 PM in the BC Adult Center. More information will follow in a Beaver Creek Bulletin.
Wishing all a pleasant time through the weekend,

Special Events This Week 10/25/2019

Dear Neighbors
 
Beaver Creek School is still looking for a full-time custodian. If there are any questions please call the front office and ask for Lyndel Kelley, 928-567-4631. Applications can be printed off the school website at www.bcs.k12.az.us or picked up in the main office of the school. An IVP fingerprint clearance card is required and information on where to get it is available at the front office.
A neighbor in McGuireville has reported an attempted telephone scam. The scammer claimed to be representing APS and threatened to cut off electric service if a phone number was not called in half an hour and the bill paid. Fortunately, our neighbor did not comply and instead reported the call and checked with APS. APS does NOT request payment via phone call. Please be cautious about any phone requests for personal information or money.
Coming up this weekend is the Dance and Sing the Night Away at the BC Adult Center and the Fall Star Party at Beaver Creek Library (meet inside, view outside), both on Saturday. On Sunday, we have Succulents & Sips at Emerald Waves Healing. The Halloween Spooktacular and the Haunted House are of course on Thursday. These are followed the next two days by the Annual Fall Arts & Crafts & Bake Sale at the Adult Center.
These are in addition to the meetings and activities listed below. Maybe this is the week to pick out and try something new to you.

Dear Neighbors
 
The Yavapai County sign project is still underway, replacement of 400 mainly street and stop signs in our area. Chris from Yavapai County Public Works is hard at work below.  Contractor Earth Resources is continuing to complete chip sealing in several areas. (It is not working on Bice Rd, just was parked nearby for convenience.)
Halloween is rapidly approaching. As usual, we need volunteers to bring vehicles to Rollins park for Trunk ‘N Treat. We always have a good time on this holiday and parents and grandparents will sincerely appreciate your efforts. Please email the calendar crew or call Janet at 301-2749 if you want to participate.  Also this year there will be a Haunted House at Emerald Waves Healing.
Beaver Creek School was busy with special projects for our young students and training for the school staff which you will enjoy reading about below. At the end of the article is a final note on the U.A.C. company which was soliciting donations from area businesses. The donations are gratefully appreciated and a contract which was thought to be expired in 2011 is now officially terminated.
Looks like the Gasmart has finished repainting. The new color scheme sure changes what used to be an eyesore while driving on BC Road. Thank you to that business for making such a pleasant and unexpected change!
A buffet of fine activities awaits your choices for the next 4 days and beyond. Tomorrow is the Third Thursday evening at the businesses along Beaver Creek Rd who have something special for visitors at that time. On Friday, BCPHS has special guest speaker rancher & businessman Andy Groseta and Toddler Time is offered at the library. Saturday morning offers the bird walk at Montezuma Well and the first social hike of the season by the BC Trails Coalition. From 11 to 1 PM the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station has an open house and free food, too.   On Sunday, Sound Journey is featured at Emerald Waves Healing.
Monday brings the free flu shot clinic to the Beaver Creek Adult Center, just from 10:30 to Noon this year. If you didn’t already get one, please consider this opportunity. That evening there is Kids at Hope Training at BC School and Merry Movie Monday at the Adult Center. In between all of these are regularly scheduled meetings.
Many special events are scheduled during the rest of the month. Lots of information and many flyers are below.
Getting a flu shot on Monday,
. . . . . the calendar crew  
Through The Lens of Hope
Good Things Happening in Beaver Creek School District-
September 2019!
Mr. Cody Kukulski’s second grade class went on a field trip to Red Rock State Park. They hiked and learned about bugs which tied in with their curriculum. Mrs. Cindy Ramirez and Mrs. Jordan Harris went to the Curtain Up series’ play about the American Revolution which was performed by Yavapai College students. They had a great time and learned a lot!
Mrs. Jill Agnew, Mrs. Cassie Weber, and Ms. Marla Sutcliffe Completed Kids at Hope Training Module 1. Board clerk, Mrs. Brandi Bateman, offered her time an expertise to this training. The participants are now knowledgeable in the philosophy which drives our work with kids.BC School Dist
The Sedona Literacy Center has resumed tutoring services for select 2nd and 3rd grade students. They focus exclusively on reading and promote growth through their 1:1 system of instruction.
Ms. Yolanda Sprinz has resumed K-Kids and Builders Club, two clubs for kids which are sponsored by Kiwanis. This club fosters good citizenship, strong moral character, community service, and leadership skills.
Students attended the Mindset Mission assembly. The assembly teaches kids to never give up, encourage others, and to do their best. The kids had a great time and learned some important skills too.
Ms. Ori Womack and Mrs. Lyndel Kelley attended the Arizona State Retirement System conference. They received updates to the system, legislative updates, and continued to develop their understanding of the program and its benefits so that they can continue to serve our staff at the highest level possible.
Students and staff did a great job on picture day staying organized and helping one another through the process. A special thank you to Ms. Sharon Brooks and Mrs. Micca Martinez for organizing the event, and to our parent volunteers Mrs. Crystal Turnbell and Mrs. Taylor Morales for their hard work.
Superintendent Karin Ward participated in a panel discussion on mental health and schools in Arizona. She was selected because of her long history of employing various techniques and partnerships with agencies such as Spectrum Healthcare to meet the many mental and behavioral health needs of students in our community.
We look forward to our Annual Walk to School Day October 1 on Beaver Creek Road.  Please be aware of slow traffic from 7 to 8 AM.
Students and staff will be enjoying Fall Break Monday, October 6 through Monday
Beaver Creek School District has been in communication with David Comer, Customer Service Manager of the Universal Ad Company (U.A.C.). We were sent the contract from Fanfare Sports from 2009 when I signed an agreement with this company.  We received Fundraising products in 2010 and 2011.
The company’s agreement shows that the agreement is in place until it is terminated by either party. I was under the impression that Fanfare Sports was no longer in business as we had not received products since 2011. I was mistaken. The name has evidently changed to UAC.
David Comer guaranteed that he will be sending the school fundraising products that are already in production. We appreciate that and will let the community know when the products arrive. After this fundraising shipment Beaver Creek School District requests termination of the agreement.
For community businesses who donated to UCA, thank you. We appreciate your dedication to our school fundraising needs.
In the future Beaver Creek School will always let the community know when there are fundraising efforts for school projects.
Mrs. Karin Ward
Superintendent

Beaver Creek eNews 10/4/2019

Dear Neighbors
We are so fortunate to be looking at another week of highs in the 80’s and lows in the 50’s. Such perfect October weather!! While on the subject of good things locally, the Beaver Creek Gasmart looks much better with its new tan & rust paint job. POBs (Pats on Back) to those who made the paint change possible.
Also, on the good news front. Yavapai County has begun a month-long project to improve the safety of our signs themselves and their use for those who observe them. Jon David, Signs & Pavement Markings Project Manager for Yavapai County Public Works, reports that “Crews are out working on a project in the Lake Montezuma/ Rimrock/ Mcguireville areas. The reason for the project is to change the sign mounting post from a U-channel type post which currently exists to a square post telespar type that is mounted in a concrete base. The new base and post comply with guidelines that we must follow, and it improves response time for signs that become damaged. We are also replacing around 400 street name signs in the area that do not comply with retro reflectivity standards. These types of projects have been ongoing in Yavapai County for the past few years.” More POB’s!
And now the ugly. A resident took a drive up the road past Sedona Sky School and while hiking found that people are dumping yard debris (tree limbs etc) and construction debris (broken cement blocks etc) in two different areas off the paved road and on the dirt side roads. Please utilize your burn permits for the slash and use the Camp Verde Transfer Station (the dump) or Grey Wolf for the construction waste. If possible and safe, report dumping in the surrounding forest to the Red Rock Ranger Station and on private property to YCSO.

On a sad note, we have lost another community volunteer and friend to many.   Sharon Casmier died on Wednesday, August 7, at age 76 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She lived in Lake Montezuma from February 2003 until September 2016. Sharon was active in the Beaver Creek Garden Club as an Arizona Master Gardener and the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club. The local Garden and Christmas Tours were enhanced by her participation and generous sharing of her beautiful home and landscaping. Funeral Mass will be held in Sumner, Washington on August 19. Her husband Richard P Casmier can be contacted at 12909 130th Ave Ct E, Puyallup, WA 98374 or rcasmier@aol.com
Our Beaver Creek businesses have been making some changes. Rask’s Auto Service is now in McGuireville just west of the gas station. Curtis and Yolanda are located in the green two-bay building next to Lucas Hunt’s A Tow Truck operation. Rask’s phone number is the same, 567-7345, and A Tow Truck can be reached at 254-8145. Rimrock Automotive & Cycle Repair has opened at 3180 E Beaver Creek Rd managed by Alex Ferguson at 567-4174. Cricket’s Sandwich Shop will have a new tenant. Date of opening is not yet announced, but word on Zuni Way is that long time owner (35 years) Kay Nye has shared her fabulous cinnamon roll recipe with the new chef.

Rimrock Rag Doll Crafters
from Sam Fisk w/photos
The Christmas House Project is off and running as of an hour ago.  We have five (maybe six) ladies who will be making Raggedy Ann and Andy Dolls as well as Amish Dolls for the Christmas House this year to be sold or donated at the shop.  We are just donating them.  Whatever happens after that is fine, whether the dolls are sold to raise funds for the project or given to families.
We need donations of stuffing….polyfluff, cotton or wool, leftover bags or new.  We are excited to be helping the Beaver Creek Kiwanis raise Christmas funds for families and to contribute to our community.  Flyers are up at the Kiwanis Clothes Closet and at the Lake Montezuma Post Office.  So far we have received only one bag.  We desperately need more……lots more!  Thank you in advance to all who help us

Orientation for Volunteer Reading Tutors at Beaver Creek School
 
T he Sedona Literacy Center  is recruiting volunteers (no experience necessary) to work with 2 nd  and 3 rd  grade students who need a little extra help catching up with their classmates in reading and writing at Beaver Creek School.  This is one-on-one work, done in a group setting on Friday mornings.  The program has been in operation since 1988 in the Sedona area and has the support of the school district.
We will hold an Orientation for interested persons on Sept. 5 th  from 10 AM to noon at the  Beaver Creek School District Board Room.  While we need several new volunteers, we also always need substitutes for our regular tutors when they are sick or gone.  Find out more about the history of the program and upcoming training and tutoring days at www.sedonaliteracy.org .  Contact Carolyn Fisher at  sedonaliteracy@yahoo.com   for more information if you can’t attend the Orientation.  Attending the orientation does not obligate you to participate.  Please come see if this is something that you would enjoy doing.
