About Us

Beach Elementary School serves the town of Chesapeake Beach in Calvert County, Maryland. We are located within the town's corporate limits. The original portion of the building was opened in 1954 with two later additions in the 1970's and 1980's. The BES campus is nearly ten acres in size and includes a forest and nature trail that is adjacent to the Fishing Creek wetlands. We are within a half mile's walking distance of the Chesapeake Bay and Bayfront Park. Our unique location lends itself well to promoting environmental education. We are a Maryland Governor's Green School.

Approximately 50 professional and support staff members serve the 525+ students that are enrolled in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth.

Our school's program is centered on 6 priority areas that include:

  • Student Achievement
  • Student Promotion
  • Staff Development
  • School, Family, and Community Partnerships
  • Environmental Education
  • Safe and Orderly Environment for Learning

Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Our school day begins at 8:55 am and instruction ends at 3:40 pm. Parents/guardians must sign their child/ren in the main office computer after 8:55 am (tardy) and must sign out prior to 3:20 pm on the office computer (early).

Students will not be dismissed from the office after 3:20 pm, and will need to be signed out at the media center patio area (car riders). Car Riders will be called at 3:40 pm to report to their dismissal area at the media patio.

When signing out your child/ren, please bring your personal ID to show office staff or dismissal staff. PLEASE NOTE: Any time someone other than the parent or guardian will be picking up the child from school, we must have a written note with the person’s name. We cannot take these changes over the phone.

On two hour early dismissal days, the early dismissal sign out time would be 1:20 pm. Car riders would then be called at 1:40. On two hour late arrival days, parents would need to sign in their child/ren after 10:55 am.
