The Surry County Elementary School handbook will provide much of the needed school information. The handbook is found in the student's daily planner.
Our front doors open at 7:30am, with FREE breakfast being served from 7:30-8:00. Our instructional day begins 7:45 and students are tardy at 8:00. School dismisses at 3:00 p.m. with parents waiting outside in the designated areas behind yellow lines on the sidewalk to pick up students. Parents in the car line should remain in the cars and staff will assist with loading students into cars.
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 his/her planning time.
The principal will keep you informed of current information through the PowerSchool Messenger system that calls each household. Please make sure that the school always has your correct phone number. You can listen to messages again by calling the number indicated on your phone log.
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.
