Lunch Information

We will be serving Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday, November 17, 2022. Please return the form you student is bring home this week if you will be attending. We want to make sure we prepare enough food for all.

Our students have been working very hard to learn manners and control voice volume in the cafeteria. We will begin hosting parents or grandparents of students in grades K - 3 on September 6. Please remember that we ask that you do not bring in outside food. Ice cream will be sold to each grade level on the day they host visitors. Due to parking and cafeteria space, we strongly encourage the following schedule:

Monday - Third Grade

Tuesday - Second Grade

Wednesday - First Grade

Thursday - Kindergarten

Parents are welcome to send in pre-packaged treats with a nutritional label for birthday celebrations that will be eaten during their child's snack time.

ACS Spirit Days

Nurses Corner

Strep & Flu cases are beginning to increase in many school systems around us. Brookhill has done a great job of keeping our cases down thus far, here are just a few reminders to continue to practice for everyone’s safety.

  1. Any student with a temperature of 100.1 or higher MUST remain at home until they are fever free, without the aid of fever reducing medication(tylenol, advil, etc), for at least 24hrs.

  2. Any student with vomiting or diarrhea MUST remain at home until they are asymptomatic for at least 24hrs.

  3. Frequent handwashing & coughing/sneezing into their hand/elbow are vital sources in germ spreading prevention. Please encourage your child to practice this at home and at school.

  4. Please email me at amanda.speegle@acs-k12.org if your child has received a positive Flu or Strep test. Your concerns and questions are always welcome as well!

Thank you for your part in keeping Brookhill a healthy learning environment!! Sincerely, Nurse Amanda
