Back To School

August 13, 2021

 Bobcat Families,

We are looking forward to welcoming students back on campus in just a few short days! Our first day of school will be Wednesday, August 18th. School starts at 8:30 and ends at 3:00.  Our priority for the 2021-2022 school year is in person learning.  We understand how important it is to have students on campus, and in the classroom with their teachers and classmates.

 Browns School Reminders:

  • Wednesday, August 18th – First Day of School
  • Thursday, August 26th – Back to School Night 6:00 p.m.
  • Per CDC Requirements, masks are not required outdoors, but are required indoors and on the bus for all students and staff.  By following these guidelines, if there is a positive case on campus, only the individual that has tested positive will have to quarantine – not the entire class.  If a positive case occurs in a class, parents and families will be notified.
  • Temperature checks are no longer required on campus, but please continue to conduct daily health checks before school.  If your student is experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please keep your student home.
  • Please send your child with a water bottle. We are still in the middle of our well project, and students can’t use the water fountain.  There are water bottle filling stations in each classroom and around the school if needed.
  • For the 2021-2022 school year, Local Education Agencies must offer an independent study option for students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent/guardian (AB130). If you are interested in this option, please contact to school office.
  • Before school child care is offered beginning at 7:00 a.m. free of charge.  After school care is offered from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. for a fee of $4.00/Hour for each student.
  • A draft of the Return to Safe In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan is available on the school website. If you would like to provide any feedback regarding the draft plan, please contact me.

 

We are looking forward to a great year at Browns School!
