From the Elementary Principal-Lyndsey Hall
Welcome back to school! I hope you have had a wonderful summer. It is almost time to start our 2015-2016 school year and we are excited! The staff has been working hard to get everything ready for your children. Our doors will open for students entering kindergarten through twelfth grade on Wednesday, August 19th. Preschool will start on Monday, August 31st.
We will have our open house for all students in preschool through sixth grade from 5:30-7:00 on Tuesday, August 18th. This is an opportunity for students to bring in their supplies and meet their teacher. At this time you will receive the following items: parent portal information, a health form, handbook signature page, and a free/reduced lunch form. If you do not receive these items, please contact the school and we will make arrangements to see that you receive them.
On July 1, we replaced SchoolReach with a new messaging system called Bobcat Alerts (through TextCaster). The new system will deliver messages through texts and emails. You will no longer be receiving voice messages. Bobcat Alerts will also allow you to select specific groups you want to hear from - FFA, Varsity Football, A+, etc.
In order to receive Bobcat Alerts, you must sign up. The school will no longer enter phone numbers because you will have to select the group(s) you're interested in. (Note: In order to sign up, you must be over the age of 13 - Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).) To sign up for Bobcat Alerts, go to www.braymerbobcats.org to find directions.
As always, my door is open to you. Please feel free to call, email, or stop by to discuss any questions or concerns you may have in regards to your child. I am excited for another great year!
