|FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL ~ Jacob Haynes|
Welcome back to school!
We are so excited that you will be returning to school soon! The custodians, maintenance workers, teachers, kitchen, and transportation staff are all very busy preparing for your return. It still feels like summer, but Open House is Wednesday, August 24, 2016, from 4 pm - 6 pm. Please join us for a special ice cream treat at 3:30 pm in our cafeteria. This will be a great opportunity for parents and students to visit and share summer stories prior to the start of school.
I am excited to usher in the 2016-17 academic year in a new role. I have enjoyed my 15 years as a 4th grade teacher and I am looking forward to serving as the new principal of Byron Elementary School. I enjoy the community of Byron and look forward to an exciting year of learning and academic growth.
The first day of school will be Thursday, August 25, 2016 and this will be a full day of school. Please make sure your child is aware of any after-school plans prior to leaving in the morning. If you need to make a change to your child's after-school arrangements, please call the office before 2 pm so we can ensure the children arrive at their correct places safely.
I also would like to let all parents know they are welcome to walk their children to class during the first week of school. However, please remember that Maple Street (our front drive) is a drop off/pick up lane and at no time should cars be parked on the road; this blocks the traffic flow and causes back ups and, ultimately, frustration. If you need to park, the church is kind enough to allow us to use their parking lot at the front of the building, or you may park in our lot at the back of the building. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this procedure.
The faculty and staff of Byron Elementary are anxiously awaiting your arrival!!!
Jacob Haynes, Principal
