Stonybrook Red Storm Forecast

Week of: February 10th

Dear Stonybrook Families,

We value Civility, Order, Respect and Excellence at Stonybrook. We are currently working on Civility and Order. There are some scholars that are not walking through the hallways and some that are horse playing with their friends. While we understand that kids like to have fun, we are teaching them when and where the right place to play around is, it's not the hallways. Help us create a school culture that reflect civility and order by reminding your scholar to walk in the hallways, not to horseplay, and to keep their hoodies in their locker.


It is going to take us all working together "sweating the details" to create the best intermediate/Middle school in the city. Thanks again for your help!

School Safety & Security Reminders

SAFETY DRILLS

Stonybrook IMS conducts safety drills with the support of Warren Police at various times of the day and throughout the year to ensure that students and staff are prepared for unexpected events that may arise during the school day.

  • Periodic severe weather drills and lockdown drills, along with monthly fire drills, are conducted to ensure students and staff have time to practice the procedures associated with each situation.
  • Periodic bus evacuation drills are conducted on campus to allow students to practice and prepare for bus emergencies. Periodic bus scans are conducted with the support of Warren Police to ensure that materials being brought on campus are school appropriate.

Morning Drop-off


As the weather becomes increasingly colder, it is important to review our morning drop-off procedures.

  • Students are not able to enter the building until 8:35 a.m. This is the earliest we can guarantee appropriate adult supervision.
  • Students should NOT be dropped off prior to 8:35 a.m. each day; if they are, they will be standing in cold temperatures until staff supervision arrives and students are let in to the cafeteria.
