With the solar eclipse quickly approaching (8/21/17), every student must submit a permission form to view the eclipse outside during school. If you have not already done so, complete the permission form and return it on the first day of school. For students who do not submit forms, they will not be able to view the eclipse during school.

Student Council collects reward points for My Coke Rewards. This program provides financial donations for schools who collect points from the participating brands. The Council is asking anyone who drinks Coke or other participating brand products to bring in the caps or codes located on the packaging. This is not a fundraiser for the Student Council but rather a project to benefit all of Byrnes High School. Visitors may drop off the rewards in the front lobby and students may give them to their teacher.
