School Beautification Day!

Join us Thursday, August 2 beginning at 9:00am at Bryan Road Elementary for School Beautification Day! We are excited and eager to make the inside & outside of our school a welcoming, beautiful scene for our students, families, and Garner community to enjoy! If you're interested in being a part of this initiative by planting a flower garden or by using our artistic ability on the walls of our school, please email Mary Bohr at to let us know!

Thank you in advance for your help!

2018-2019 Bus Registration

Please note, if your child was a former 2017-2018 bus rider at another WCPSS school, their transportation will roll over to us at Bryan Road and will be signed up for the bus automatically.

If your child did not ride the bus last year, if your child is a kindergartner, or if your child is new to WCPSS, click here and scroll to the bottom to sign up to ride the bus to and from school during the 2018-2019 school year.

Kindergarten Staggered Entry

Your little scholar will attend one full day of school during the week of August 27-31. This is called staggered entry for kindergarteners. This model provides your child the opportunity to meet their classmates, learn the routine and schedule of the school day, and participate in all daily activities in a small group. It also provides our teachers the chance to get to know your child in a small group setting and perform basic assessments. All kindergarteners will begin attending school full time at Bryan Road Elementary beginning Tuesday, September 4.

Please review the schedule below for your scholar's one full day of staggered entry before beginning full time.

  • Monday, August 27
(Last names beginning in letters A-D)
  • Tuesday, August 28
(Last names beginning with letters E-I)
  • Wednesday, August 29
(Last names beginning with letters J-R)
  • Thursday, August 30
(Last names beginning with letters S-Z)
