 Happy New Year!

welcome back 2023-24

May 2023
Dear Families and Staff,

We have reached the middle of May and another year has seemed to fly by!  I hope that you and your children have had a wonderful school year.  As we get ready for summer, I would like to encourage you to find ways to keep your children engaged in reading and learning!  That could be through hikes, talks, books, and other adventures!  They will teach you as well as you teach them!  

Summer is a great time to take an adventure in a book with your family.  You can read and discuss the story.  You might have your children explore science, technology or cooking!  Whatever it is, cherish this time and enjoy making memories!  

The Brooklyn Public Schools is part of the Northeast Early Childhood Council and we are proud to share the new area Resource Guide!  If you want to learn more about the area, you can do that by accessing the resource guide.

I want to close by wishing each of you a wonderful end to the school year!  It is my honor and pleasure to serve the students, families, staff, and community of Brooklyn!  This is an amazing district and I am proud to be a part of it.  Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need to share information or ask any questions.  I can be reached at 860-774-9732 or [email protected].

Sincerely,  Patricia L. Buell, Superintendent 

Standard Response Protocol: 
What would it look like if there was an emergency at the Brooklyn Public Schools and parents and students needed to reunify in a location other than the Brooklyn Public Schools?

The Brooklyn Public Schools Safety Committees and School Administrators have been developing plans based on training from experts.  

**We want you to know that WE HAVE A PLAN!  We hope that we will never need to use it, but if we do, we have prepared and will make it as smooth as possible.**

The following presentation was shared at a parent information session.

There are many resources but most importantly we ask that you:
1.  Keep your contact information updated in PowerSchool

2.  Update how you want to be contacted through SchoolMessenger

If you need additional information, please ask!

Budget information can be found on the
Board of Education Page.
