It has been a great week at school. We welcomed nearly 100 students back to campus and it has been wonderful! Thank you to everyone for extending your patience during arrival and dismissal as everyone learned our processes.

Reporting a Student Absence

Reporting your child's absence to us at school can be very easy. We ask that instead of a phone call that you report your child's absence in writing preferably by email. You can do this by emailing the teacher directly or visiting our school website https://www.pcsb.org/brooker-es and click on the Report a Student Absence icon in the top right corner. Please note that you will still receive an email and/or phone call from the county saying your child is absent.


Please include the following information;

1. Student name

2. Grade

3. Reason for absence

American Heart Association

Our PE department is very excited to announce that we officially kicked off our partnership with the American Heart Association today! We are learning about our heart muscle in P.E class and how to keep active, healthy bodies as well as how being kind helps our hearts. Students have been challenged to build happy healthy hearts while helping others with sick hearts!

Please help your children to register today at heart.org/KHC by clicking on the below link!

Cafe Updates

We are continuing to ask our BCE families to preorder meals when possible. When parents spend a few minutes pre-ordering their child’s lunch, it allows our cafe team to plan ahead. These forms allow us to break the meals out by the teacher and have them ready when the students come into the lunchroom and reduce the amount of time they have to spend in line. Pre-ordered meals also help us to reduce waste by only making food that is needed based on the orders.
