Chromebook Distribution for Grades 5 and 6

In the coming weeks, the district will be providing students Chromebooks to be used in and outside of school. This is a one to one initiative to make sure every student has access to the latest technology to be successful in their academics. This device will follow the students through their time here at Brennan, so please take care if these devices!


In order to get a new district issued Chromebook, every loaner will come back into the building on the day of distribution. You will need to bring the charger as well. We will not issue a Chromebook until the loaner/the one we issued earlier in the year, had been returned.


7th and 8th grade distribution TBD, however we will aim for the window between 1/13 and 1/22.

The Feinstein Good Deed Jubilee!!

Our students here at Brennan are lifting spirits this holiday season. Creating cards to be delivered to a local nursing home to spread cheer. These good deeds are just one way to make our world a better place!

PRESS RELEASE: Flu Clinic

For immediate release:


Annual flu vaccination is highly recommended throughout the season as a protective factor. Other measures, such as good hand washing, proper cough etiquette and staying home when ill, are also crucial in preventing disease spread.

Food Drive

Our community is facing so many challenges at this time, if you can donate, know there are families that will greatly appreciate your generosity. If every student could bring in at least two items, we will clear our goal of 1000 items to be donated.
