First Day of School Postponed

Administrators have decided to postpone the first day of school to Tuesday, August 30.

Due to widespread power outages, downed trees, flooding and other damage related to Hurricane Irene, all Brookfield Schools will be closed on Monday August 29, 2011.

The first day of the 2011-12 academic year is now scheduled for Tuesday, August 30.

Anyone know if Tuesday will be a full day of school or an early dismissal? I can't find that information anywhere and need to know so I can make arrangements for my children. Thanks.

My understanding is that Tuesday will follow a first day schedule, as was planned for tomorrow.

Thanks for the info. Now need to scramble to make arrangements. Not sure why there would still need to be an early dismissal since the teachers were just in for the past few days for staff development but I guess that's not my call. I would highly suggest putting this information on the district website and on the e-news for all to see so there are not a ton of children being sent back to school.
