PTO Buzz

A big thanks to all of you who made the Hornung Trunk-or-Treat a success! The kids loved seeing each other in costumes and loading-up on sweets. We greatly appreciate LEGACY, AIRBORNE! and BARC for their donations of raffle prizes. Another big thanks to Kenny Privett Productions for the DJ services. Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween.

Our next PTO Meeting will be on November 12th at 9:00am. The Facebook page will list the details in the coming week. Please join us as we will be discussing plans for the holidays. Charitable giving is an important part of our organization and we hope to have activities all can support!

We have an Amazon Wish List for teachers appreciation:

A Note From The Specials Teachers

If you have anything you would like to discuss or even wish to simply chat about your child’s progress in art, music, or physical education, Mrs. Cavallaro, Mrs. Chernich, and Mrs. Anderson are available for a quick conference or phone call. Please email us to set up a time at: (Art) (Music) (P.E.)

Don't forget your mask for the bus

Gentle reminder that if your child is riding the bus please don't forget to send a mask with them from home. Thank you:)

Note from the Attendance Secretary

Please call in your student's absence to the Attendance Line every day they are absent from school. Please give a brief reason why they are absent, whether it be a vacation, personal or illness. If your student is ill, please provide a brief description of their symptoms. If you don't include specific symptoms the school will call you for more information. If you do not call in your student's absence, a Robocall goes out around 2 PM. If you receive the Robocall, that means your student has an unexcused absence.

Please pack a change of clothes

Please make sure you pack a change of clothes in your child's backpack EVERY DAY. This is for ALL grades. You never know when your student may have a nosebleed, have a spill, get muddy or have a bathroom accident. If they have a change of clothes, then we can take care of it, otherwise we will need to call home for you to bring up a change of clothing. Thank you for your cooperation.

The McKinney Vento Act

The Brighton Area Schools is part of a consortium to serve students in temporary living situations that provides financial support for educational needs, referral for housing, clothing and other needs, general support and technical assistance. To ensure compliance with federal law, all school staff must help identify student living in the following situations: emergency shelters/transitional housing, motels/hotels, car, parks or public spaces, shared housing due to a loss of housing or economic hardship, or living temporarily with non-parent or guardian.

The district’s homeless liaison is Starr Acromite and each building has trained staff members to assist in the endeavor. Our consortium contact at the Livingston Educational Service Agency is Candice Uyttendaele.

Please contact your building principal or Starr Acromite at 810-299-4040 for information/assistance.
