    Help Prevent the Spread of Flu
    This year’s flu season is particularly severe. We need your help to protect our students and staff from being infected with this dangerous virus. When your child is sick, the best thing is to keep him/her home. Students should stay home until free of all of the following symptoms:

    • fever of 100 degrees F or higher
    • nausea or vomiting
    • severe headache
    • diarrhea
    • red, watery eyes with yellow drainage
    • undiagnosed rash
    • Stay home until fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours, and free from nausea, vomiting and diarrhea for 12 hours.

    If a student presents with these symptoms at school, we will call and ask that s/he picked up as soon as possible.

    • Do not park in the fire lane at any time.
    • Merge at the merge sign. Everyone lets one car in.
    • Refrain from using your cell phone in the carpool line.
    • Arrival: Have your student(s) ready to hop out before you get to a cone.
    • Students should enter and exit their vehicles from the right hand side. For their own protection, safety patrol has been instructed not to walk to the left hand side of the car to assist.

    Track Change Requests

    We are now accepting Track Change Requests for the 2018-2019 school year. Please be advised that due to legislation requiring significantly smaller class sizes in K-3, it may not be possible to grant many requests this year, and/or it may be late in the spring before we are able to make changes. We will keep families informed as we determine how Brassfield will be able to accommodate this new law. Hard copies of the Track Change Request are also available in the front office.
