Important Updates


UPDATE: Book Fair is Coming (Sept. 26-29)

Students will go to the book fair during their Media Center special. The book fair will also be open during Open House on 9/28. So you may want to plan to shop with your child during that time.


To reduce students carrying cash with them to school, we encourage all families to create e-wallets. You can easily put money on e-wallet accounts for your child using the link below. You can also send this link to friends and family who want to contribute! Your child will be able to access this money at the register, during the fair.



The Scholastic Book Fair is September 26-29 and we need volunteers!!! Follow this link to help with set up, work during the fair, or help with break down:




IMPORTANT: Reminder of Dismissal Procedures


Please remember our dismissal procedures below that are in our Brentwood Parent Handbook:


Please ensure that your child gets to school on time on a regular basis. And, please refrain from picking them up early from school.


Students will NOT be dismissed from the office after 2:45 except in the case of an emergency.  Every minute of every day counts. Students dismissing around this time causes them to miss valuable classroom instruction at the end of the day.


Please call (919)850-8720 with questions or concerns.


Reminder: Thursday, September 28th - Open House


Join us on Thursday, September 28th from 5:30-7:00pm for Open House.
