We are still waiting for a link from Mount Rose to enable you to register for the Friday afternoon Lessons that begin in January 2018 for children 4-12 years old. We will pass this along as soon as we receive it.

As the temperature swings get more wild, students will be wearing more layers and accessories, and then removing them throughout the day. Please label your child's sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, coats, hats, gloves, and scarves. We prefer first and last name, but whatever identification you can fit on items will help you retain your clothing.

Parents, like it or not, it is candy season! We know how hard the temptation to toss a little sweetie in your child's lunchbox is, but we hope you keep those treats at home. Please remember that we are a nut-free school, and this includes peanut butter candy.

BIGHORN BASKETBALL GAME: Brookfield families are invited to the Bighorn's Opening Night on Friday, November 10th @ 7pm! Bring your family and friends for an exciting night of basketball! Take advantage of special group seating and ticket prices of $10 per person.

Reserve your seats today with the Brookfield School Front Office at 775-825-0257. Payments will be accepted at the front office and tickets will be distributed the week of the game. Don't forget that Brookfield kids get to participate in the Half Time High Five Tunnel.

PARENT SURVEY: Your opinion matters! Please take a quick second to complete our survey about the school start times and calendar.

Please be advised that Washoe County is reporting an increased number of cases of viral meningitis, especially in the 5-17 age group. Viral meningitis is the most common type of meningitis. It is often less severe than bacterial meningitis, and most people get better on their own (without treatment) within 7-10 days. However, it is very important for anyone with symptoms of meningitis to see a healthcare provider right away because some types of meningitis can be very serious, and only a doctor can determine if you have the disease, the type of meningitis, and the best treatment, which can sometimes be lifesaving. Symptoms include: fever, headache, stiff neck, sensitivity to bright light, sleepiness or trouble waking up from sleep, nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, and lethargy (a lack of energy). If your child is diagnosed with meningitis, please notify the school as soon as possible.

LUNCHTIME WARM-UPS: While we are happy to warm up student lunches at lunchtime, we ask all parents to label your containers. This will not only enable lost containers to make their way back home to you, but will significantly expedite your child receiving his/her lunch!

ATTENTION PARENTS: We are implementing a new security process regarding your children exiting campus after school has been dismissed. ALL children will be checked-in and logged upon their final class ending. This does not mean you will be charged. It is strictly for the purpose of tracking all children who are on campus. Charging for after-school care is determined by your child's grade and clubs. It is imperative that when you pick up your child that you make sure he/she is signed out! After-school Care staff will be ready to help with clipboards for signing out your child. Please make sure that you see a staffer before leaving campus. If you do not, you will be charged for aftercare as a result.

FRIDAYS AFTER-SCHOOL CARE: All students remaining on campus after 1:15 pm on Fridays will be signed into After-School Care, even if a parent or caregiver is present. To avoid any charges, please be off campus by 1:15 pm. Students who participate in a specific club will not be charged for after-school care while in the club. Thank you for your cooperation so we can staff our After-School personnel correctly.
