Second Semester is Almost Here!

Jan 22, 2018

The first half of the school year will end at the close of our first semester this Friday.  So make sure your teachers have all of your assignments. If your grades aren’t where you want them to be, or you are nervous about the upcoming SOLs, you can make sure you are ready by joining us every week for after-school homework help on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

At this point we are still scheduled to have our student holiday on January 29th.  I will share any updates to this if there are changes.

The Brookland Middle School Counseling Department is in the process of planning a Career Fair for our students on Monday, March 19, 2018 from 8:45 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  We are looking for volunteers to set up “booths” and talk to our students about their careers and how they contribute to making a difference in our community.  If you are interested in volunteering for the Career Fair, please contact one of the school counselors as soon as possible or complete the attached document and turn it in to the school counseling department.

There will be a Curriculum Fair and Course Information Night for all 8th grade students and parents who are zoned to attend Hermitage High School next year.  It will take place on January 30, 2018 from 5-7 p.m.  A spaghetti dinner will be served to all who attend!

After School Programs!

The first half of the school year will end with the close of our first semester on January 26th.  That being said we want to remind everyone that Homework Help and Cub Institute are up and running on Wednesdays and Thursdays and resumes on January 3rd.

Monday, Jan. 15th is the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday and school will be closed in recognition.

Our after school programs are from 3:15-4:20 on Wednesdays and Thursdays Homework Help will be offered.

We have buses running but bus passes must be completed before your student can hop on a bus.

Parent Pick Up and Drop Off Information

Nov 29, 2017
Drop Off Loop Image

Drop Off Loop

Parents may drop off students in the gymnasium parking lot in the morning starting at 8:05 a.m. There are signs directing parents to the drop off area.  Parents may pick up their child starting at 3:15 p.m. in the gymnasium parking lot.  Signs will be posted in the gymnasium parking lot to assist with traffic pattern.

Identification of Student Drop Off and Pick Up Areas:

Parents may drop off students in the gymnasium parking lot in the morning starting at 8:05 a.m. There are signs directing parents to the drop off area.  Parents may pick up their child starting at 3:15 p.m. in the gymnasium parking lot.  Signs will be posted in the gymnasium parking lot to assist with traffic pattern.

Directional Flow of Traffic:

Parents must enter through the entrance of the gymnasium parking lot to drop off/pick up their child and leave through the exit.  Parents must also enter through the entrance of the Main Office parking lot for an appointment and leave through the exit.  Signs are clearly posted at each location.

Procedures for Pulling Up to the School:

At the parent pick up/drop off location in the gymnasium parking lot, the school staff will direct traffic so that parents will pull toward the front of the parking lot.  Parents are to pull up in the loop as far as possible to allow traffic to flow more smoothly.  This is in an effort to deter parents from attempting to drop off students on Lydell Drive.

Procedures for Student Pickup:

Parents will be directed to pull forward and park in the gymnasium parking lot as they did at the student drop off location.  They will have to pull forward toward Lydell Drive and wait for their child to arrive.  During the school day, if a parent or visitor is found parking in the front loop during any other time besides parent drop off, they will be asked to move their vehicle immediately and park in the designated parking area.
