Welcome to Brookwood Elementary

What an amazing start to our 2013-2014 school year at Brookwood Elementary.  We are so excited about our students and families returning.  There are many wonderful experiences and opportunities that lie ahead for our families and students.  This is going to be an amazing year.

 

I want to thank and affirm families for exercising patience with our staff before and after school.  At Brookwood safety is the top priority. We decided as a staff that our past practices with arrival and dismissal was extremely dangerous for staff, families and students.  The new procedures has guaranteed and proven to be extremely safe for the entire Brookwood family.  Thanks for keeping everyone safe!

 

Supervision on the playground is available at 8:40 a.m. or for breakfast.  Please do no drop off students any early that 8:40 a.m. If before care is needed, please call 493-5693. Thank you in advance for keeping our students safe.

 

Thank you for your partenership with the staff at Brookwood.  When schools and families partner and work together, students are successful.   Rest assured if there is anything that we can do to support, please do not hesitate to give us a call.  Our doors, ears and hearts are always open to you.

 

Respectfully

Mr. Bradshaw and the Brookwood Staff
