BUNDLE UP!

Please make sure your students are bundled up to wait for the school bus or wait outside the building until breakfast is open. Students are let in the building at AMJE from 7:35 - 7:45AM for breakfast. Students arriving after 7:45AM wait outdoors until 7:55AM. At BRMS students enter the building as soon as they disembark from the bus.


Students in grades PK - 5 will go outside for recess daily. It is important for students to get outside, socialize with friends, move around and get fresh air. Please make sure your student is dressed for the weather. In the case of extreme cold, rain, wind, or snow, recess will be held in doors.

Chromebooks at Home

At home Chromebooks are for homework and school related research. The district uses Gogaurdian to assure that student devices are being used appropriately and students and their personal information is safe. Our data shows Chromebooks are being used late into the night for non school purposes. Please monitor the Chromebooks and make sure they are turned off and are charging each evening. To be prepared for winter weather issues that may result in a remote learning day, check regularly to assure the Chromebook is in working order. If the Chromebook needs to be repaired, please complete the Chromebook Help Form below.

INCENTIVES AT SCHOOL!

BRMS students earn Bronco Bucks and AMJE students earn Jaguar Dollars by making good choices, being respectful, and staying engaged with their academics.


These incentive monies can be spent on a number of fun food items, rewards, and prizes. Ask your student how much incentive money they have earned and saved.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, the following resources can help.

School Safety Resources:

We believe that a student's right to feel safe in school is paramount and contributes significantly to that student's capacity for learning and social development. In our ongoing effort to maintain a safe learning environment for all of our students, CCSD 180 has developed three new methods of reporting incidents of school safety and/or bullying to school personnel. We encourage students and parents to utilize these resources to report any incidents of which they have knowledge. When a message is retrieved by school personnel, the incident will be investigated and responded to accordingly, by social workers, administration, and or the Threat Assessment Committee.

Definition of Bullying Behaviors:

These are systematic and persistent behaviors that do not recognize the rights of others. Bullying occurs when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening or leaving someone out on purpose. Bullying is not a one-time incident. Bullying interactions are carried out continually over time. Actions that are considered bullying behaviors include:

Direct (Face-To-Face) Bullying:

Verbal Bullying- name-calling, mocking, hurtful teasing, insults, put-downs, humiliating, racist or sexist comments, harassment

Physical Bullying- shoves, pushes, hitting, beating up, stealing, damaging property, assault

Psychological Bullying- giving dirty looks, uttering threats, forms of intimidation, extortion

Indirect (Behind Someone's Back) Bullying:

This is also referred to as relational aggression or social bullying.

Gossiping “lowering people's opinions about the student who is targeted as a victim

Social Aggression “ telling people not to be friends with a student who is targeted as a victim, spreading rumors, and damaging friendships

Leaving Out- shunning, exclusion

Cyber Bullying- The use of electronic technology as a means of bullying and harassing may involve sending threatening or harassing emails or instant messages, creating a website that belittles or ridicules another student, taking unflattering or inappropriate pictures of another student without their permission and sharing them with others or posting them on an internet site, stealing someone's password and sending mean messages to others
