It has been a great Monday here at Brookside. Teachers have been meeting, working, and preparing to begin home learning instruction on Wednesday. We are all still trying to figure out what this is going to look like, but our teachers are extremely capable and amazing. Thank you for your patience and support as we figure this out.
Devices to aid in home learning instruction will be available for check out to those families who are not able to provide computers or devices at home. Check out for devices will be on Wednesday in Brookside’s main foyer from 8 am-10 am. A guardian will have to come and sign for the device. Devices will not be given out to students. Please watch your email for a survey regarding technology needs. Thank you!
All scheduled school events have been canceled for the next two weeks. Please call the office if you have any questions.
