Kindness Tree

The holidays are just around the corner! This year, the Student Services Team is going to have a Clothing Drive to help support Note in the Pocket. Note in the Pocket is a non-profit agency that partners with Wake County Schools to provide free clothing to students in need. Because their inventory is solely based on donations, they are especially in need during the holiday season as a high number of referrals come to them. What a better way to give back to, not only our students, but all Wake County students than to help support this amazing agency?!


Bryan Road will have a holiday tree set up in the front foyer for donations to be put under. The Clothing Drive will run from Monday, November 26th through Thursday, December 6th. Some items may be kept at Bryan Road in case of student emergencies such as accidents, nose bleeds, etc.


The Clothing Drive is for any gender and all ages, as Note in the Pocket provides clothing to, not only students, but their families as well.


Please help your Bryan Road Student Services Team get in the holiday spirit by donating clothing this holiday season!

Transportation Reminders

1. If you have to pick up your child early, please arrive before 3:15 in order to make sure your child is able to be released safely before afternoon dismissal begins. You will pull in the bus entrance and park in the smaller side parking lot.


2. Also, if you have any transportation changes, please write a note in the morning to your child's teacher. Do not use email or Seesaw as teachers are unable to check these regularly when they are teaching. If you have an emergency transportation change, please call the office.


3. Wake County does not allow students to ride the bus to any locations, other than their approved stop. They are not allowed to ride the bus home with friends.


4. Sign up for Here Comes the Bus to track your child's school bus! (SCHOOL/DISTRICT CODE: 67500)


End of Day Transportation:

Families, please start having your child use the mode of transportation that will be their permanent way to school and from school. If they are going to ride the bus throughout the year, they need to ride the bus now so they don't lose their spot on the bus. We are providing support here at school to help them learn the arrival and dismissal systems and become familiar with their mode of transportation.


We appreciate your patients as our students are learning the new systems. We expect them to get faster as the year progresses.

CREW Night Feedback

THANK YOU SO MUCH for attending our first CREW Night (K-1 Curriculum Night)!! We hope you found it helpful, fun, and informative! If you did attend, we welcome your feedback on the event so that we can make each one even better moving forward! Please click this link to share your thoughts!


Additionally, the materials and activities that were checked out at CREW Night are on loan to your family until January. Please treat these materials with care and return them in excellent condition so we may use them to benefit many scholars in the years to come! Thank You!

Vacations

We believe that good attendance is a key factor to success at school. Please plan your vacations during scheduled school breaks. Excused educational absences will only be granted in instances where the leave is time sensitive and educational in focus. For example, a boy scout is presenting at a national conference. Vacations will not be granted as an excused educational absence.


Additionally, please share these plans with your child's teacher a week in advance anytime your little one will be missing several days of school. This allows the teachers ample time to prepare your child's work ahead of time.


If your child misses school make up work will be sent home when they return (as opposed to sending it home prior).
