Parents we want to thank each of you for being so patient and cooperative as we continue to implement safety measures on our campus. Please be reminded of the following as you visit our campus:

  • Please sign in and out each time you visit us. Bring your photo identification!  Each time you visit our campus we will scan your license and issue you a Visitor’s Badge.  This badge will display your name, picture, and date of your visit. Please return Visitor Badge to the office when you sign out.  We will also ask to see your identification if you are picking up your child. Seeing your identification will verify your identity, allowing us to release your child safely into your care.

  • At Birch Elementary we are trying to create a more satisfying lunch experience for you and your child, therefore designated days have been scheduled for lunch visitors.  They are as follows:

    1st and 2nd grade ---Monday & Wednesday

    3rd and 4th grade ---Tuesday & Thursday

    Friday will be a closed lunch day with no visitors

    Birthdays & Celebrations

    Due to nutritional law changes this year, students are no longer allowed to bring cupcakes to school to celebrate.  Should students want to share their special day with their classmates, they may bring a sealed product for each student in the class to be taken home.  These sealed bags must be sent home with the students at the end of the day.  You must make arrangements with the campus principal for a birthday or special circumstance 24 hours in advance.

  • We want to thank everyone for helping us with smooth traffic flow in the morning and afternoon. We ask that you continue to refrain from walking your child across the street during the morning drop off time and from picking them up at the front door during afternoon pick up time. This has allowed our circle drive traffic to keep moving! If your child is a car rider in the afternoon, make certain you have a car tag. This tag will have your child's teacher's name and assigned number. If you do not have this car tag, you will be asked to come in and show proper identification before picking up your child.

  • If your child rides the bus in the afternoon an adult  must be visible in order for the driver to let the child off.  If no adult is visible at the stop, the child will be returned to the Central Administration building where a parent or guardian will be called to pick the child up.  

  • Continue to check your child’s backpack and/or folder daily. There are a lot of fun things happening here at Birch Elementary and notes are sent home when needed to keep you informed! Please put your child's name on backpacks, lunch kits and in jackets, sweaters, etc., by doing so we will be able to return any lost items.

Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, Mrs. Clay (Principal) or Mrs. Smith (Assistant Principal) at 903-295-5120 if you have any questions or concerns. We will be glad to help! We are happy to have your child here at Birch Elementary. We hope their years here with us are the best!!

Thank you.
