Mrs. Briana McLeod-Larsen


Welcome to Boyd Elementary School, home of the Beavers! We are excited to have you visit our website and share information with you about our school and all the wonderful things happening here. 

Boyd Elementary School is located in the heart of the Keystone neighborhood and serves nearly 500 students. We currently have four classrooms at each grade level Kindergarten through Second and three classrooms at each grade level Third through Fifth. In addition, we have one all-day Head Start, as well as two Alternative Curriculum Program classrooms.

Boyd is a welcoming and safe place that provides a student-focused, challenging academic environment for your children. We strive to assist each student in reaching his or her highest potential. I take great pride in our school and am proud of the many positive experiences we are able to offer our students.

Communication between home and school is very important! We will do our best to keep you informed through our weekly Boyd Beacon newsletter, classroom newsletters, school sign, website, and school messenger system. We value the support and input of our parents and community and encourage a cooperative partnership with the school. We will create a community of learners with the combined efforts of students, staff, parents and the community.

The staff at Boyd Elementary is dedicated, creative, and enthusiastic. They hold high expectations for students and tirelessly strive to improve student achievement.

We have an amazing PTO that aims to create memorable and meaningful experiences for our students and families. The PTO supports our academic efforts by providing resources for the school and building community by planning family events.

Boyd Elementary is a great school and I am proud to be a part of it. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, please do not hesitate to call, stop by, or email. My office door is always open!

Go, Beavers!
