New Traffic Pattern at Brooklyn Public Schools

Morning and Afternoon Drop Off/Pick Up

Mid-day Preschool Pick Up/Drop Off

I am asking that parents wait until 15 minutes before the scheduled drop off or pick up time before lining up at the school.  We want to be sure our school grounds are safe and that we follow the emissions laws.  Some parents arrive an hour before dismissal time.  This is a long time to have someone outside of the building sitting in a car and a long time for car emissions to be exhausted into the air.  
Please follow the guidelines below.

Morning Drop Off: Line up 8:15, Drop Off 8:30-8:45 
Morning PreK Pick Up: Line up 11:25, Pick Up 11:40-11:50 
Afternoon PreK Drop Off: Line up 12:00, Pick Up 12:15-12:25 
Morning PreK Pick Up:  Line up 11:25, Pick Up 11:40-11:50
Afternoon Pick Up:  Line up 3:00, Pick Up 3:15

Thank you for your cooperation!

Budget Questions and Answers:
I will keep a running list of questions and answers!

Question 1.  What happens at a budget workshop?  
Budget workshops are open meetings that anyone can attend.  The public can ask questions for the Board of Education to consider as they determine what their budget priorities are for the next school year!  

Question 2.  What at the dates of the budget workshops?
All Budget Workshop meetings are at the Board of Education Community Room.
Dates are:

February 6, 2019 5:30-6:30PM
February 27, 2019 5:30-6:30PM

Once the Board of Education decides on a budget that they will forward to the Board of Finance and the Town for approval they will no longer hold budget workshops.

Question 3.  What exactly does it mean for 7th graders – what is content reading rotation by quarter and how is that different than the grade 8 reading full year?  What does this look like and what is the purpose in 7th grade for the change?
