Dear Bryant Families,

On Veteran's Day, we want to say thank you to our military servicemen and women for their service and sacrifice to this country. As a child of a military family, I have seen firsthand the amazing commitment made each and every day but military personnel and their families. We appreciate you and your dedication to our community as well. Thank you from all of us at Bryant!

Our Parent Teacher Conferences are fast approaching! We are so excited to welcome our school community into our school and see classrooms. Please read the following reminders as we are getting ready to schedule these conferences. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's classroom teacher or the main office.

  • Masks are required for all participants. We will have extra masks should you need one.
  • The conference needs to be limited to 1-2 parent/guardians and the student. We ask that siblings not be brought to the conferences in order to reduce the number of people in the building.
  • Below is a map of the school with entrances and directions to find your child's classroom. We will also have people available to direct traffic as needed.

If at any point you need to schedule a TEAMS conferences instead of an in-person conference, please contact your child's teacher.
