BES Weekly Update

March 22-26

Happy Sunday, Byrd Eagles!

Tomorrow, March 22 is now an instructional day for all students.


Mark your calendars for our next Virtual Family Fun Night with the YMCA on March 26 at 6:30pm. This is a virtual event. A link to attend using your student device will be shared with students in Seesaw and Schoology.


It’s time to start thinking about next school year – and that means registration for incoming kindergarten students and the application process for families interested in preschool for their younger children. Whether kindergarten or preschool, more information can be accessed from the links here. Make an appointment with the front office staff at your school for screening between April 12-30 and begin the registration process at www.goochlandschools.org/student-registration/

Daily Reminders:

  • Students need to charge the iPad each night and bring it to school each day.


  • Wash masks after each use.
