Dear Byam Families,
It is hard to believe that September is almost upon us. In order to prepare for the start of school here are a few items to get you organized.
First Day of School: Students in grades 1-4 will start school on Wednesday, September 3. Kindergarten students will have an orientation appointment on either September 3 or 4 where they will meet with their teacher and a small group of students from their classroom. The first official day of kindergarten is on Friday, September 5.
Arrival/Dismissal: For information about arrival and dismissal procedures please click here. If your child will not be taking the bus home as part of their permanent dismissal schedule please click here to download the permanent pick up notification form. Fill out the form and return with your student on the first day of school.
Medication Drop Off: If your child requires medication be taken at school, the nurse will be available to receive medication and paperwork on Thursday, Aug 28 from 7am - 11am, Tuesday, Sept 2 from 1pm-2:30pm and on Wed Sept 3 from 7am to 4pm. All medication must be presented in its original prescription labeled container, accompanied by a physician signed order, a parent/guardian signed consent form and condition specific action plan. These forms are available on the CPS district website under Health Services. Medication will not be accepted or administered without the proper documentation. Also note that medication must be delivered by an adult and not sent in with your child.
Curriculum Night: We will be having our curriculum night on Thursday, September 11. More information about this informative evening to follow.
We look forward to welcoming back our students and families to Byam and are excited for the start of a great school year.
