Mr. Bradshaw, Principal


Brookwood Families,

 

What an amazing start to our 2014-2015 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.  The parking procedure is going well 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 partnership 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

Absent Reminder

If your child will be tardy or absent, please call the office at 455-0030 ext 22501 or press #1.  You can leave a message any time of the day or night.  It is very important that the office also has current phone numbers.

Visitor Information

All visitors must sign in with the office and receive a visitor tag before continuing into the building.  This is for the safety of all students.

If you would like to come in and speak with your child’s teacher, please call ahead to set up an appointment.  Communication is important between parents and teachers, but when teachers are in the middle of lessons it is not always possible for them to stop teaching if someone pops in.  We appreciate your cooperation.
