Dear Students and Families of Brown School,
     To all our new families, welcome to E. S. Brown School! To our returning families, welcome back! I’m excited about the opportunity to work with you as partners in your child’s education and sharing a common goal for a successful, productive school year.  We are energized and ready to jump start a year filled with lots of inquiry and exploration!
     The students first day is August 26.  Please check our website for class supply lists and transportation information.  Some important dates to note is our Open House on September 8, 2014 (6:00-8:00 PM) which is a great way to start the school year and helps to support students’ transitions.   We also have our Fall Family Festival on October 4, 2014 which is always a great time for families!  Our Parent Conferences are scheduled for October 15 – 17, 2014, with afternoon and night time appointments available. 
     As a continued effort to provide the best possible educational experience for our students, teachers have been busy over the summer months, fine tuning techniques to bring the most effective instructional strategies back into the classrooms utilizing technology and resources that will assist us in personalizing the students’ experiences at E. S. Brown School. We are also pleased to be able to offer our after school programs again this year as we continue to meet the needs of our students with the continuation of the Walking Club, Spanish Club, Homework Club, Mad Science Program and Computer Club. Keep your eyes open for details on all these programs in future newsletters and our website!
     We all strive for the same end result; to foster academic, social, and emotional growth in all Brown School children. Working cooperatively will enhance the successes for everyone involved.   Here’s to a great year!

Student Drop-Off/Pick-up Procedures

Our morning and afternoon student drop-off and pick-up procedures have changed slightly from last year due to the expansion of a new driveway and drop-off/pick-up area, side lot to the left of the school.

Morning Arrival/Drop-off
All student drop-offs between 8:20 a.m. and 8:40 a.m. will take place in the side parking lot area to the left of the school (south side). Students are not permitted to be dropped off prior to 8:20 a.m. This parking area has a separate entrance from the circular driveway in front of the school.  During this time only buses, faculty members, and vehicles displaying a handicap placard will be allowed access to the driveway directly in front of the school.  Parents are asked not to park in the circle area in front of the school as there are numerous parking spots in the side parking lot/drop-off area available.  When dropping students off, it is extremely helpful and more efficient if the driver pulls as far forward as possible in the designated drop-off zone, so that as many vehicles as possible can unload simultaneously onto the playground area. 
If your child arrives to school after 8:40 a.m., please park in the lot to the left of the school and escort your child into the building, using the front main entrance.
For the first week, there will be several staff members helping in the drop-off area to ensure a smooth transition to the updated procedures as well as to answer any questions parents may have.  During this transition period, I ask for your patience, cooperation and understanding.  Student safety is our top priority during this busy time.
 
Afternoon Pick-up
The student school day ends at 3:05 p.m.  Parents picking their child up should park in the side parking lot area and enter the building through the second back door of the building near the gymnasium.  The hallway outside of the gymnasium will be the parent pick-up location.  Parents must remain in the downstairs in the lower lobby to ensure the security of the building.  E. S. Brown School Staff will not allow parents to enter the building prior to 2:50 p.m.  Parents must have a government issued photo I.D. to verify their identity and to sign a child out.  If anyone other than a parent/ legal guardian will be picking a student up, the school must have a note notifying the school that the student’s parent/guardian is allowing this person to sign the child out. 
The students must remain our top focus at all times, especially during unstructured times such as dismissal. Your anticipated cooperation is greatly appreciated.
