As we head into spring break, I want to thank you all for your support, feedback, and cooperation so far. Just as a reminder, the “soft closure” will continue through May 1st. Teachers will be back online after spring break with more learning opportunities. I hope you all have a restful and relaxing break! Take care!

March 26, 2020

Dear Parents,

We have almost completed the first two weeks of “at home learning”! Congratulations, everyone!! After one more week we can all enjoy a week off for a well deserved Spring Break! Parents, please know that the teachers understand how difficult this online learning at home can be. They have experienced those struggles, learning curves, and trial and error right along with you. They are having to take a “one size shoe” approach to instruction for households with feet of many sizes. If you want and can do more - virtual field trips, extra lessons, etc . .  - go for it! However, if you are barely hanging on with the demands facing you and your family, please know that we understand. We know that you are doing the very best you can in your new role. Your child’s physical and emotional well being is important as well. Thank you for all you are doing!!! We need to work together during this different and challenging time.

To change things up a little, we are planning a Brookside Spirit Week for next week. You can find the information on our school’s web page.  You can participate by posting pictures on Instagram and tag us @brookside.tigers. You can also email pictures to your teachers and we will get them posted. Thank you! 

On Wednesday, April 1st, teachers will be bringing a special note to each of their students between noon and 2 pm. It will be a small sign placed in your front yard. If students would like to wave to their teachers, that would be great! Just remind them that they can’t run out to the teachers or give them a hug. We need to make sure they stay in the house or on the porch. Thank you! The teachers are so excited to see their students!

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
