Welcome to Beacon Park School! After an 11-month journey of planning and preparations, we opened in August of 2016. It’s exciting to open our classroom doors to students and our staff & PTA Board continue to focus on developing a strong and vibrant community. We’ve hosted various events and meetings that emphasize social engagement in an effort to introduce and welcome new students and families into the Beacon Park community. We’re fortunate to have a strong cadre of parents volunteers that support the staff and invest in the instructional program for our students.
With an emphasis on community in our classrooms and grade levels, our staff is developing a rigorous and innovative instructional program. About one-third of our teachers received a grant for 1 -1 Chromebooks for their classrooms. With this technology and a focus on creative design, many grade levels are creating project-based assignments for students. Student learning is reflected in presentations of their work, persuasive essays and written journals, as well as multimedia archives.
We’re excited about new opportunities and challenges as we continue to grow and add grade levels each year. We look forward to getting to know you.

Attendance is taken daily and reported to the office. When a student is going to be absent, the parent/guardian must call the 24-hr Attendance line at 949-936-8401 and leave a message by 12pm EACH day of attendance. When calling, please leave student’s full legal name, reason for absence and date(s), teacher’s name, caller’s name, and relationship to the student. Absences not cleared by phone call or note will be unexcused and the student is considered truant by the state.
As defined by the State of California, an absence is considered excused for the following reasons only: illness, death in the family, religious holiday, doctor/dental appointment or student’s appearance in court. Absences due to family trips or family business are unexcused absences. To excuse an absence for medical reasons, a note from a medical professional is due within 2 school days of a student’s return to school.
A student is considered truant if he/she is absent for more than 3 full days in one school year without a valid excuse; tardy or absent for more than a 30-minute period during the school day without valid excuse on 3 occasions in one school year or any combination thereof. (Education code section 48260)
Children should not be sent to school ill in order to protect the health safety of others. If a child is ill or has a fever, please keep him/her at home. State law mandates that a child must be kept home until he/she is “FEVER FREE” for 24 hours without the use of medication. If your child vomits at home or school, they need to be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school.
Students are responsible for being on time to school with all materials and required assignments. A note from a medical professional will excuse a student’s tardiness to school. The note must be provided within 2 days.
Beginning and Ending of School
Students may not arrive at school more than 15 minutes early and should leave campus within 15 minutes of the final bell. Adult supervision is not provided outside these times.
Leaving School Early
If a student needs to leave school before the end of the school day, the parent/guardian must come into the front office and sign him/her out. Students will be released only to those listed as an Emergency Contact and who are at least 18 years of age. Identification may be required. Please be patient and allow time while the front office locates your child (ex: at P.E., Science, etc.) so they can grab their belongings in their homerooms.
Adults on Campus
To ensure student safety, all adults need to check in at the front office before entering the school campus. Parents/visitors need to sign in and wear a “Volunteer” or “Visitor” badge at all times while on campus.
In order to provide students with a consistent focus on academics, class times will not be interrupted. All forgotten items must be left at the front office and we will make certain that they receive it.

The Story of the Bengals
Aside from the alliteration & animal character that appeals to students, the Bengals are also an acknowledgement to the history and legacy of the El Toro Marine Base. The Bengals were initially commissioned as fighting squadron VMF 224 in 1942 flying Wildcats in the Pacific. After Guadalcanal, the squadron spent time at El Toro Marine Base being refitted with Corsairs before returning to the Pacific battlefield. Fifteen years later the Bengals returned to El Toro where they accepted the Panther and were renamed as an attack squadron, VMA 224. We’re proud to be able honor the local base of the Marine Corps with our mascot.
