School Closure Date: Indefinitely

We Miss Our Students!

South staff HELLO!

From Kenna Rainey, Principal

In the light of recent events and school closure, South Elementary continues to be committed to serving your student(s) both academically and nutritionally. We have created the option for either a curriculum packet or digital learning via Google Classroom, as well as breakfast and lunch, for each student. Please adhere to the following directions:

Paper Packets:
  • Each student can pick up consumable materials to complete work at home. Student workbooks and curriculum packets will be available for pick-up on each Monday from 8:30-1:00. Please pick up your student’s work in the front driveway of the school. Be ready to give the staff member your student’s name and homeroom teacher, and we will deliver the materials to your vehicle. Please leave all workbooks at home for future use.

  • Completed packets will need to be returned the following Monday each week when you pick up the new packet.


Digital Learning:
  • For those choosing to continue learning digitally, all assignments will be made in Google Classroom and turned in online. Students should know the login information, but if you need assistance please email me at kenna.rainey@breckenridgeisd.org for login and password information.

  • If you need to check out a Chromebook, you can check one on Mondays during packet distribution or email rakel.paul@breckenridgeisd.org to set up a time.


It is imperative that your student completes the required work. We will still be taking grades on work. The quality and quantity of the work that your student completes, and turns in, will determine your student’s promotion or retention for next year.


Teachers will be working from home, but will have scheduled hours where they will be available via email, phone conference, and/or Dojo for any help or questions that may need to be answered. Teacher work hours will be from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm daily. Remember, they will not be on campus and please contact them directly.


We will also continue to serve both breakfast and lunch during the specified times. Lunch and Breakfast pickup pick-up will be from 11:30-1:00 pm daily. Again, pick-up will be available in the circle drive. This is subject to change, but we will post changes on DoJo and our school Facebook page.


We appreciate your time and effort in this matter. Thank you for being patient and flexible as we continue to serve your student(s). If you have not done so already, I encourage you to join our Breckenridge South Elementary Facebook page for updates and make sure you are connected through Class DoJo.

From Abby Moore, BISD Librarian

BISD Families --
We will not be asking you to return students' library books at this time! If you have our library books at your house, please enjoy them!! In the meantime, please follow this page. I will be posting lots of resources for online reading, as well as hosting some fun competitions for our BISD kiddos. Remember, we want our kiddos reading EVERY DAY for at least 20 minutes. If you are at home with your kiddos, try to find space for reading every day for you too. Reading can be incredibly healing, and it's a great way to escape from the moment when things seem overwhelming. Much love to all of our students and families during this time!

Keeping your Child Safe Online

At school, we use a program called Bark to monitor student computer usage. You can use the same program at home for a small fee. You can use it to monitor cell phone usage as well as computer usage at home and school.


School Chromebooks are also still being monitored by a program called GoGuardian. Students should not be using the school computer to access anything that is not school-related. We will be calling parents to notify you if we receive a flag from your child.
