- Students can find all their lessons and assignments on eCLASS, but there will be no live instruction.
All students will complete their special area class digitally. More information is on the Brookwood ES homepage.

2021 GCPS Area Board Meetings
Attention - 4th Grade Parents
You can order a recorder from Brookwood Elementary for an $8.00 fee, which includes a 3-piece recorder and case. Payments are made through MyPaymentsPlus under Events and Activities in School Fees. Another option would be to buy the recorder at a local music store or Amazon. You can find links to our local music stores are on Mr. Reyes' eClass page in the Web Tiles box.
Car Rider Parents
School is released at 3:20 each day. Our car rider line begins moving shortly after the release bell. We made adjustments to load more cars and move the line quickly and safely with this year having the largest number of car riders in our school history.
We need your assistance. If you line up prior to the school release time of 3:20, you block streets and intersections and the line is not moving yet. There is nowhere for your car to move until school is dismissed.
If possible, we request you enter the car rider line between 3:20-3:30. This will be during the timeframe that the line will be moving. This is the same process in the morning where our line does not begin to move prior to the arrival time of 8:20am. If you are blocking roadways prior to the school dismissal or arrival time, you will be asked to leave the line and return once school is dismissed (or open for arrival) and the car rider line is operating. Thank you for your assistance in getting our Brookwood Colts home safely.
