Brentwood Families,


Hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed this fall weather!


Please see information below for updates:

Monday, October 11= Teacher Workday


Thursday, October 21= Picture Day


Monday, October 25= End of Quarter 1



Important Updates




We have been having some issues with families picking up their child(ren) out of the line while students are walking to the walker pick-up location. We want to ensure the safety of all of our students, therefore, please wait until your child has arrived at that assigned location before picking them up.


Students will not be allowed to be picked-up by parents out of the line but rather the assigned walker pick-up location. Staff will greet K-2 families at the back Media Center door (that faces the modular unit).


Please remember, the only students that are designated as walkers have been approved by school administration. If your child has not been approved by school administration, they are not considered a walker and would need to go through carpool.


If you have any questions regarding these procedures, please contact administration.


UPDATE: SPIRIT WEEK starts next week (Sept. 27- Oct. 1st)


Our first Brentwood Spirit Week of the year begins next week in celebration of September attendance awareness month and October bully prevention month. We hope all students join our staff in participating in Spirit Week. See the below flyer for more details on Spirit Week:

Interims for all students were sent home by teachers this past Friday. If you have not yet received this report, please contact your child’s teacher.
