What's Buzzin' at Bryant
Week of August 22, 2022
A Message from Mrs. Johnson
Hello Bryant families,
Thank you to everyone who came out to Back to School Night. It was so great to welcome our community back on campus. It is my hope that little by little we will regain a sense of normalcy in school. We are getting there. One day at a time.
With the desire to experience normalcy, we must remember we are still in the midst of a pandemic. To ensure the safety and well being of our entire community, if your child is ill, please do not send him/her to school. In normal circumstances it is against school policy to administer any type of fever reducer with the goal of reducing a low grade fever to send your child to school (please see the parent/student handbook). It is even more important that we adhere to this policy to ensure we do not inadvertently spread germs to anyone. Attendance is important however our health and wellness are equally as important.
Lastly, as a reminder, all parents are required to complete the online data confirmation process through the Aeries parent portal no later than September 30, 2022. Please see the information in the bulletin related to how to complete this process.
Everyday promises to be better and better. Let's continue to work together as a team. I truly appreciate your partnership.
As always, BEE fantastic, BEE great, BEE the difference!
The "King Bee" of Attendance
We stand by our Core Virtures!
What does it mean and look like to show respect and responsibility?

RUSD Dress Code
A diverse group of RUSD students and staff convened this year to update the RUSD dress code policy. Input from parents was gathered as well. Parents and students have the ultimate responsibility of grooming. However, the role of the school site is to ensure student dress does not interfere with the health or safety of a student, and does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating learning environment.
Please see the graphics below. You may also see Board Policy 5132 or refer to the RUSD Parent/Student Handbook.
