NEW Drop Off and Dismissals
Buses will drop off students at 7:25 each morning. Parents may drop off from 7:30 AM to
7:45 AM. If you arrive before the buses have finished dropping off, please wait by the tennis courts till they leave. Then parents drive up and drop off your student in a single file and one family at a time. Do not pass any cars for the safety of students. Pick up in the afternoon will be done very similar. Buses will load, and parents will line up behind the buses. Do not park in front of any buses. We will dismiss the bus riders and buses will leave. Parent pick up will be called one student at a time in order of the parents in the drive-up line. Parents will not be allowed in the building at any time this year, or until COVID is gone.
Student Dismissal Notes
Students are expected to have a note at the beginning of the day indicating where they will be going after school. No bus changes will be allowed daily due to preparations will need to be made in advance.
Students are tardy if they are not present at the beginning of the school, which is 7:45 AM. Tardiness is disruptive to other student’s learning and the teacher’s instruction.

School Board Meeting — September 8th

Brooklin School is a Nut Sensitive School
What does this mean? As a school community, we will work together to ensure the safety of all the children in our school. We are asking the entire Brooklin community to assist in this effort to keep children with food allergies safe. The menu in the school cafeteria will feature nutritionally appropriate substitutes for peanut and tree nut products. All staff members will share in the responsibility of keeping children safe in our school.
How can I help? You can help by talking with your child about food allergies and supporting the efforts taking place at school to make all children aware of the nut sensitive policy at Brooklin. Some of our efforts will include the importance of hand washing throughout the school day and not sharing food with other students. You can also help by cutting down whenever possible the peanut and nut products your child brings to school for lunch or snack as is reasonable for your family.
What if I have further questions? Please do not hesitate to call Jil Blake, Principal, or Louanne Munson, the Administrative Assistant, at 207-359-2133 with any questions you may have.
