BPS Gets Feedback on Need For Medical Help, at School Competitions

BEATRICE – Beatrice Public School District is examining the possibility of having beefed up medical assistance at sports activities, but budget conditions may limit what can be done.

Superintendent Jason Alexander says he’s heard concerns from some parents and business people about having another doctor or physical therapist on the sidelines during competitions.

Alexander publicly thanked Doctor Darin Hoffman for his assistance at Beatrice Athletic events, this year.

Alexander says one option would be to find medical assistance that would be offered on a volunteer basis.

Alexander says more discussions are planned in the future and he says the school’s activities director has already had some meetings on the issue.  Alexander says the district cannot promise financial backing to add medical staff, but said the district would be grateful, recognizing medical staff as much as possible.

On another topic during the Beatrice School Board monthly meeting Monday night, the superintendent said the Paddock Lane Elementary School addition is getting closer to full completion.  Some concrete was poured Friday along the east side of the addition and other work is being completed this week…some of it, weather-dependent.

District 15, over the past few years, has gone to secure entry and exit points at all district buildings.
