Today is National IT Professionals Day. We want to say THANK YOU to our amazing IT staff who work behind the scenes to keep our technology up and running.

Pretty incredible for this team of tech wizards. #BryantProud

Administration has been made aware of rumors of gun violence at Bryant High School. We understand parents are very concerned. We take all matters of safety very seriously. School Resource Officers and Bryant Police have been actively investigating. At this time, they have found no evidence of the rumors to be true. The rumor alleged that two individuals were coming to the school to do harm. One of the individuals does not attend BHS, but is in another district which confirmed the student to be in class at this time. The other student who was named is at school and has been searched. Law enforcement has determined that the threat is NOT credible. As a matter of precaution, BHS will have additional security personnel at lunch and on campus the remainder of the school day.
Hornets, get out your Red, White and Blue! On Friday, September 10, students and staff are encouraged to wear red, white, and blue in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks. Join us in honoring the lives lost and giving thanks to the brave first responders who put their lives on the line.
