Important Changes to Remind Text Messaging for Verizon Customers

Parents- we know that many of you reply on the Remind Messaging service for update from your child's teachers.  We were recently made aware of some changes that may impact you if  Verizon is your cell phone carrier AND you use the Remind app.  Remind absorbs the cost of charges from Verizon when a text is sent to your phone from your student's teacher via Remind. Verizon recently increased the fee they charge Remind  and they can no longer absorb those costs so they will no longer  be routing text messages via Remind to Verizon customers. If you are a Verizon customer, this means you can potentially miss important communication from your child's teacher(s).

This only impacts messages sent via text message through Remind, and only impacts Verizon customers. In order to ensure that you do not miss any messages that  your child's teacher(s) sends through Remind, please download the Remind mobile app. or enable email notifications. This change will take place on January 28th.

Attention 6th Grade Parents-- Important Notice about Tdap Vaccine

In accordance with South Carolina law, all 7th grade students must have the Tdap vaccination. Tdap is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).

Bryson Middle School requires that the vaccination (or exemption) be completed and all immunization certificates turned in to the school before the student starts orientation for the 2019-2020 year.  Students will not receive their schedule and will not be allowed to attend school on the 1st day, if the school does not have the correct documentation on file. We appreciate everyone who has already completed the Tdap requirements. If you have not, please be advised of this policy and complete the requirements as soon as possible.

Please do not wait until the start of your child's 7th grade school year.  This must be on file with the nurse prior to the start of 7th grade. Parents are encouraged to submit the documentation by May 31, 2019.  Please feel free to fax proof of vaccination to 864-355-2194 or bring the documentation to the school. Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please call the nurse at 864-355-2107.

One School, One Book. - Refugee by Alan Gratz

Book Cover-Refugee bu Alan Gratz

Parents- on January 9th we will begin reading the book, Refugee by Alan Gratz, as part of the program One School, One Book.  Each student, teacher and staff member will read the book over several weeks and in April we will welcome author Alan Gratz here to Bryson Middle School as a visiting author.  We encourage you to go ahead and purchase a copy of the book for your student. We have provided several links below where you can purchase a copy. We will have copies for each student to use here at school, however, the benefit of purchasing a copy for your child is that have their own copy to read, should they get behind/or miss class and also they can have their copy autographed by the author when he visits in April.

Refugee by Alan Gratz is available for purchase  online from the following merchants:

Amazon        Barnes & Noble       Scholastic Books, Inc.
