Weekly Update – June 14, 2020

Posted on

Dear Bon Air Families,

It’s hard to believe the school year is officially over!  This will be my last regular Sunday email to families for the summer.  I will continue to communicate with families throughout the summer as more information about next year becomes available.  As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have throughout the summer.  I miss our families and look forward to keeping in touch!  Below are some final updates for the year.

Bon Air 5K t-shirt pick-up information:  We will have a drive-thru pick-up at the bus loop on Thursday, June 18th from 10-11am or 6-7pm to get your order.  If you can’t make either of the pickup times drop off will be arranged at a later date.  If you have questions, email Thanks for supporting the Bon Air 5K and our wonderful PTA!

Yearbook update:  We have a limited number of yearbooks available for sale by clicking here.  The cost is $25 each.  The yearbook printing plant was shut down for several months earlier this spring; but they expect to deliver yearbooks in late July or early August and we will work out a plan for distribution.

Summer Office Information:  On June 29th, our school office will be reopening.  Our summer office hours are from 7 AM to 5 PM Monday through Thursday.  Our office is closed on Fridays in the summer.  There will be a cart in the front of the building during our summer office hours where you can return any items to school.  Please be sure any items you return are labeled with your child’s name and the teacher’s name.  In order to ensure the safety of our office staff and our families, we ask that if you need to come to our office, please call ahead of time to make an appointment.  Our school phone number is 804-560-2700.  This will ensure that we don’t have too many people in our office at one time for safety reasons.  If you need to pick up your child’s items left at school, know of anyone who needs to bring in enrollment documentation, or anything else, this can be scheduled by calling our school beginning June 29th.

Summer meals information:  From June 15-Aug. 31, meals will be served on Mondays and Thursdays at Bon Air Elementary and in the Suburban Village neighborhood. Three days’ worth of meals will be provided on Mondays, and four days’ worth of meals will be provided on Thursdays. (No meals service is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Fridays.)

Any child between the ages of 2-18 is eligible to receive meals through the federal program operating under the guidance of the United States Department of Agriculture. Children do not have to be present for a parent, guardian or older sibling to pick up a meal. However, the visitor will need to provide a student’s name and age.

Summer Reading! Reading logs and suggested book lists can be found on the Bon Air Elementary library libguides page.

Scholastic Virtual Book Fair: Families may purchase books online and they will be shipped directly to your house. Free shipping for orders over $25. Our school earns a percentage of sales. The book fair will run through September 4th.

NEW! Battle of the Books for MIDDLE SCHOOL: Robious MS is starting a BOB program. All grade levels may participate. Middle School BOB Presentation

Kindergarten Registration:  Due to cancellation of our traditional Kindergarten registration, it is very important that all families who have a rising Kindergarten student use our online registration system to register their child for Kindergarten.  Click here to complete the online registration form.  While we hope to be able to reschedule our traditional registration, with the uncertainty of when that might be able to occur, this online registration is very important.  If you know any families who have rising Kindergarten students, please share this information with them.

Thank you again for your continued support this past year.  Have a great summer, stay safe, and we hope to see you all again very soon!

Best regards,

Heather Gentry
