Please remember to check over the Health Screening Questions found in the weekly email message each day.  Remember to send your child with a clean mask and back up.  Students should also bring a water bottle, as we do not have water fountains at school this year.  The best way for us all to keep our children healthy is to encourage good hand washing, mask wearing, and please keep your children home whenever sick.  If your student is absent you should call the front office or school nurse.

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, September 21st from 5:30-7:00 for our Byrd Elementary School Open House.  It will be a fun evening to see classrooms, check out student work, and visit with teachers.  We will have a FREE hot dog dinner for families and raffles as well.  We hope you will be able to come by with your student!

If you are interested in volunteering to help run the Garden Fairies Program, then please complete an interest form.  Garden Fairies is a program run every Friday or every other Friday, depending on availability of volunteers.  It is a 30 minute program that usually occurs at the very end of the day (1:45-2:15).  During this time 1 to 2 students from each class join volunteers in the courtyard to work in raised beds and help maintain our outdoor learning space.
