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

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

March 13, 2020
Dear Beaver Creek Families and Staff:
On Thursday, March 12, 2020 Governor Ducey, State Superintendent of School Kathy Hoffman, and Dr. Cara Christ of the Arizona Health Department led a conference call for school districts. I listened to the call and the questions from around the state from other superintendents.
*        We learned that as of right now Arizona is in a minimal risk area for COVID 19 aka Corona Virus.
*        We learned that we could track information on the Arizona Health Department Website (azdhs.gov).
*        We were reminded that our decisions on how to close schools should be based on data, not emotion, as the emotional frenzy can cause unjustified anxiety for our children.
*        We were reminded to complete district plans for Pandemic Preparedness. Arizona Department of Education released the updated plan at 6 pm on March 12th.
*        We were reminded that the best way to fight the spread of this illness:
*        Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. (Soap dispensers are in every classroom and teachers will institute a hand washing routine several times a day.)
*        Cover coughs and sneezes with elbow or tissues. (Staff will remind our students of this important defense.)
*        Clean hard surfaces often. (Teachers and Paraprofessionals have Clorox wipes to help with this process on tables, desks, door handles etc in their rooms). Custodians are cleaning all other areas nightly with deep cleans on Fridays and over Spring Break.
*        Stay home if you are ill. If you or a family member has symptoms of COVID 19, call your health provider to be directed for testing.  ( Symptoms include  fever, dry cough , shortness of breath) You may return to school or work after 72 hours fever free without taking a fever reducing medication like ibuprofen or Tylenol.
*        Any families whose children have health conditions that could be compromised will be excused from school with work sent home. Other requests for school absences will be reviewed by Principal Sacco. She will coordinate with you as we understand this is a family’s personal decision.
Be prepared as a family for childcare needs, if the school closes.
The Yavapai County Health Department and the Schools already work together if there appears to be an infection in the community. This relationship and communication will continue.
If the pandemic situation changes in the area, the Governing Board may close the school at any time, upon direction from the Superintendent.  At that time, teachers will provide for instructional materials on-line and with handouts. The district will also provide food assistance to children during the closure.
As of today, March 13 Beaver Creek School remains open.  Stay in contact through DOJO, School Messenger, and the website for updates. This is a rapidly changing situation. Updates will be sent as needed.  Contact me via email with any questions or concerns even on the weekend!( Kward@bcs.k12.az.us ).

We have not heard any news about our requests for a delay of closure for the Lake Montezuma Post Office in order to appeal the decision. The petitions will be available to sign through Wednesday. We ask that you hold off on closing out your mailboxes there until the first week in February in order to give the government a chance to respond favorably to community concerns.
– Update 1/13/2020 – The Rimrock Postmaster and his Area Supervisor personally visited the BCCA Board meeting on Monday to answer questions from residents, which we did appreciate. They expressed a desire to listen to your concerns, and said they will be keeping the blue outgoing mailbox where it is right now across from Rollins Park.  Residents expressed their dismay at losing our Post Office, and the need for more notice for those who may have to reprint checks and mailing materials. Our Petition signature collection continues through Wednesday as noted above.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AT MONTEZUMA CASTLE & MONTEZUMA WELL
 
The National Park Service is looking for several dedicated local volunteers to assist with seasonal visitor programming at Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well February through May 2020.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about the National Park Service and try out volunteering on a temporary assignment with a minimum commitment of 4 hours a week. We have a variety of positions available to accommodate any interest and/or ability. We will be offering several training opportunities in January and February 2020. Winter is a great time to train and become confident in your knowledge before our busiest season of the year starts mid-February through May.  Each position below will have two shifts, 9am-1pm and 1pm-5pm.  Please indicate your availability and shift preference in your application.
Positions at Montezuma Castle National Monument:
Visitor Center Greeter and Pass Checker
Montezuma Castle is looking for several volunteers from February 17- May 30 to assist with the long lines at our registers.  Visitation is at our highest during those months and the visitor center gets very crowded.  Volunteers checking passes provide a valuable service to our visitors by expediting their entry into our park and by explaining the best value pass to purchase. This position involves sitting at a table outside.
 
Junior Ranger Helper
Volunteers are needed to staff our Junior Ranger table at Montezuma Castle from February 17-May 30.  During our busiest time of year we often exceed 100 Junior Rangers a day. We currently have 2 programs: One for Montezuma Castle and the state-wide AZ Junior Explorer book.  Volunteers will let visitors know about the program, hand out and explain the books, check the answers with the visitor and swear them in as Junior Rangers.  Anyone can be a Junior Ranger, ages 0-100+. This position involves sitting at a table outside.
Trail Docent
Volunteers are needed to walk our trail answering visitor questions and offering guided tours. This position involves standing for long periods or walking a 1/3 mile paved loop trail several times.
Positions at Montezuma Well*
If you have ever wanted to share your appreciation for Montezuma Well with visitors from near and far, this is your chance to do so! This position may include sitting at a table greeting visitors or standing for long periods and walking a moderate-strenuous ½ mile trail with many steps and inclines.
*A federal background check is required for Montezuma Well.
To apply, please see our website at https://www.nps.gov/moca/getinvolved/volunteer.htm. For more information or questions, email Krystina_isaac@nps.gov.
Copper Canyon Fire & Medical Report
On January 8  at 02:42 in the morning, Copper Canyon Fire and Medical District Stations 81 and 82 were dispatched to a residential fire at 2740 E. Outlaw Way in Rimrock. Emergency crews arrived on scene to find a small residential structure with smoke coming from a gable end on the roof line. The incident was quickly upgraded to a working fire, bringing mutual aid responses from Verde Valley Fire, Sedona Fire and Yavapai County Sheriff’s office. Crews deployed an offensive strategy, stretching hose lines into the structure. Upon entry into the structure emergency crews found a small smoldering type fire in the attic space of the home. Crews quickly extinguished the fire and overhauled the remaining area.
The structure sustained minimal damage, though it did displace the occupants. There were no injuries sustained by the occupants of the home as they evacuated without incident from the structure prior to emergency crews arrival. No emergency crews sustained injuries either. CCFMD would like to thank Verde Valley fire and Sedona Fire for their assistance on this incident. The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time

eNews 1/4/2020 & LM Post Office Closure

Dear Neighbors
Today is a great weather day for doing the bird walk at Montezuma Well and for attending a reception and presentation in the Beaver Creek School Boardroom by a Ugandan Medical student who is sponsored by a foundation started by Nathaniel Dunigan of Rimrock.  We have amazing folks who quietly live here among us!
Not to diminish the pleasure of a beautiful day, but we were surprised on Thursday to received a letter from the Rimrock Postmaster closing the Lake Montezuma contract post office as of March 6 and giving those customers until February 21 to submit a change of address to prevent disruption of service. Not only does this disrupt and inconvenience  individuals, but many of the area non-profit and service organizations use this post office since it is convenient to the Beaver Creek Adult Center which is a meeting hub.  And we all lose the only postal service in our area which is open on Saturday morning.
Petitions will be in the LM Post Office and in the BC Adult Center as of Monday requesting an opportunity to appeal the closure.  BCCA (Beaver Creek Community Association) has notified YC Supervisor Thurman and US Representative O’Halleran about this situation and asked for their advice and assistance.
Saturday, 1/4–Bird Walks at Montezuma Well  will be hosted by NPS from 9 AM to 11 AM on the first and third Saturdays from October through April and back to 8 AM to 10 AM for May.  Meet at the Montezuma Well picnic area.  For more information please contact NPS at 928-567-3322, ext 0.
Saturday, 1/4-Reception of and presentation from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM in the Beaver Creek School Boardroom by Dorah Dunigan, a young woman who was orphaned in Uganda by AIDs. She is on her way to becoming a doctor with the help and support of AidChild which was started about 16 years ago by Rimrock’s own Nathaniel Dunigan. This special event is hosted by Friends of Beaver Creek Library. Refreshments provided. (See flyer below)

Saturday Special Events 3/9/2019

Dear Neighbors
This Saturday is another fine day to participate in events throughout our community.  In early morning the monthly food bank is open to all at Beaver Creek School. Then over in the Lake Montezuma Village Square our new health service provider, Canyon Medical Clinic, is having a Grand Opening which includes lunch!!  At 1 PM in the Adult Center, there will be a presentation on the proposed Verde Connect which includes a new bridge and a new road.  In the late afternoon at Montezuma Well, the first in a series of free Yoga classes is offered at Montezuma Well.
Verde Connect?  The calendar crew has asked a few folks about this.  The common answer is that I’ve heard of it but am not sure what it is.  This is your opportunity to find out what Yavapai County is spending your money and to have some input in it.  Where will this road and bridge be located?  The general Verde Connect study area is below.
On March 21 the annual free dumping days begin at the refuse centers.  Thank you to the Board of Supervisors!  Fire Chief Terry Keller would like to remind you that none of the Verde Valley fire and EMS districts or departments are soliciting donations.  Please ignore calls from the Firefighters Support Association PAC.  More information is below.

This Week in Beaver Creek 9/10/2018

Dear Neighbors
Lots of good news this week!  Deuce the dog was found at VVHS and is back at home.  This chip sealing got off to a slow start and is not proceeding in the expected order, but Cactus Asphalt is doing a much better job than we had from the last chip sealing work done in our area.  Before your street is chip sealed, a “Notice to Residents” flyer will appear at your home which has the dates to NOT park in the street.  Meanwhile, enjoy this nice beginning fall weather!
On Thursday at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station the annual Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner will be from 5 to 7 PM.  Kiwanians and Kiwanis student clubs invite you to come spend an evening visiting with us.  At lunch time on Tuesday, the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club meets for the first time this fiscal year and has a special guest speaker from Out of Africa.  On Saturday, a monarch butterfly survey is being completed at Montezuma Well.  If you’d like to participate, the instructions to register are below.  Also on Saturday morning, the Food Bank at Beaver Creek School will be open. Other clubs and organizations are meeting again starting this month.  Please check out the schedule below.
Upcoming special events for later this month are the Shred-A-Thon, the Chili Cook-Off and free prostate screening.

eNews 7/9/2018

Dear Neighbors
Grand Marshal Verna Shafer & BC Kiwanis President Peter Jensen
What a wonderful 4th of July we had and now the monsoons are beginning!  We’re all sure hoping for some good rains and more water in the creek.  However, the ducks did make it through the channel that is still running.  Thank you to the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated more than $7000 worth of prizes this year.  The prize winners are being called today, so the prize list will be published during this week.  Thank you to all who celebrated in Rollins Park and made it the best get together to date.  Please don’t miss Bill Helm’s photo gallery “2018 Beaver Creek Independence Day Celebration”.  He captured the enjoyment of the event.  https://www.cvbugle.com/photos/galleries/2018/jul/05/2018-beaver-creek-independence-day-celeb/
And Sunshower Rose has posted a tribute to Friends of Beaver Creek Library at the celebration on youtube:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs2y_29zW2c&feature=youtu.be
Local availability of food is a theme of this week.  In addition to the second Saturday of themonth Free Food Distribution at Beaver Creek School, the Rimrock Farmers Market starts Wednesday evening at the Verde Valley Honey store on Beaver Creek Rd.  Candy Hammond, RRF Director, gave us a taste of what’s to come by providing 195 servings of watermelon at the Beaver Creek 4th of July Celebration and had that colorful and creative parade entry.
And continuing about local creativity and ingenuity, two more authors have books available on Amazon.  Both authors have been long time residents and volunteers in the community.  Carol Rotta now lives in a senior complex in Prescott.  Her book is about her early years homesteading in Alaska.  Carol Penfield’s new offering is a sequel entitled Lucina’s Destiny which follows Midwife of Normandy and continues the historical saga of the Dupres family in the 17th century.
       Ready for some summer relaxing & reading,
