• Parent Awareness Sessions

    The Surry County Elementary School handbook will provide much of the needed school information. The handbook is found in the student's daily planner. 

    School Information
    Doors are open at the beginning of the day at 7:30 a.m. with students sitting in the hall until the 7:45 a.m. bell. Students are tardy at 8:00 a.m. and must come by the office to pick up a tardy slip. FREE Breakfast is served between 8:00 and 8:15 a.m. for all grades. School dismisses at  3:00 p.m. with parents waiting outside or in the front hallway near the office to pick up students. Parents in the car line should remain in the cars and assistants will load the students.  

    Safety
    All students must enter the school though the front doors. No students should be let out of cars at the gym. We will not let students cross the street by themselves at dismissal so all parents who park on the street need to come to the loading area to pick up students. 

    Conferences with Teachers
    Teachers are available to take your phone calls after 3 p.m.
    You can also call the receptionist and ask the teacher to call you during her planning time. 

    Blackboard Connect 5
    The principal will keep you informed of current information through an Connect 5 system that calls each household. Please make sure that the school always has your correct phone number. If you have missed a message, please click here 

    Volunteers and Lunch 
    Students absolutely love for their parents to each lunch with them. Please come, check through the office and eat with your child as often as possible. We would also like to have you volunteer in our school. Just contact your child's teacher or the principal.
