Please make sure students arrive at least 30 minutes before the bee is set to begin for registration.
As a reminder, our policy for cancelling regional bees due to inclement weather is:
-If the weather appears threatening, the coordinator of the regional bee and I will make a joint decision about whether to cancel the bee and use the make-up date. We will make this decision at least 6 hours before the start of the bee, or by 4 p.m. Friday if the bee is scheduled for a Saturday morning.
-If the bee is postponed due to inclement weather, this information will be communicated via email and on the homepage of the Newspapers In Education website at http://nie.newsok.com. If the weather conditions are potentially hazardous, please be sure to check your email and/or the website for cancellation information.
You will send your winner AND runner-up to the regional bee, and should make sure your alternate is prepared to attend in case one of the top two students is sick or otherwise unable to attend at the last minute.
Any questions you have about the regional bee should be directed to Bailey Huntsman (firstname.lastname@example.org), not to the host school.
Don’t forget this information, too!
–School spelling bees must be held by January 18. Please remember to plan ahead in case of inclement weather.
-Submit your winner and runner-up names directly to Scripps at www.spellingbee.com. You should also determine an alternate but do not need to turn in the alternate’s name.
-After your school bee, you may give copies of the “Spell-It” study guide to your winner, runner-up and alternate to prepare for the regional bee. Do not distribute any pronouncer’s guides- this is grounds for disqualification!
THIS FORM IS FOR REGIONAL BEE COORDINATORS ONLY.
