Change in Dismissal Today Due to Rain!

Due to the heavy rain we are adjusting our dismissal procedure today.

All students in kindergarten will be dismissed from their classrooms. Family members should go directly to classrooms to pick up their child/children. Kindergarten families enter through the kindergarten exit door and exit through that door.

First and second graders also will be dismissed from their classrooms. Family members should enter the building through the main door, go up the main staircase, pick up their child/children then go down the staircase in the back of the building and out the front door.

Third and fourth graders will be dismissed from the gym. 

Fifth graders will be dismissed from the cafe.

Staff members will be available to help. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Save the Date! Curriculum Night is September 13th

back to school

Please join us Thursday, September 13th, for Brackett's Curriculum Night.  Parents and caregivers are invited to visit their child's classroom and learn more about the curriculum and activities during the school day.

Teachers will offer two identical back to back presentations in their classroom so that families with more than one child can attend presentations in each of their children's classrooms.

Presentations are:

     First Session:  6:30 - 7:00 pm

     Second Session:  7:10 - 7:40 pm

Please note that this is an adult only event so please plan accordingly for childcare.

Looking forward to a terrific school year!
