Schools Back in Session Monday Morning

Some routes and stops may change temporarily.

As of Friday afternoon, Brookfield schools are back on the public power grid and will be reopening Monday, November 7, at their regular times. According to an email disseminated by the district, certain bus routes and stops may have to be changed and, if so, that information will be sent out through the E-News this weekend.

Because of lingering outages expected to plague the town into next week, any students who are without power will not be marked as absent.

To make up for a week of missed school days, the district has decided to cancel February vacation, a long weekend from Thursday, February 16, through Monday, February 20. That Thursday, Friday and Monday will now be regular schools days for staff and students.

As a reminder, schools will be closed on Tuesday for Election Day ( and will be open as polling places) and Friday, November 11, for Veterans Day.

According to the email from Superintendent Anthony Bivona, the high school will continue to be used as the town’s 24-hour emergency shelter through noon Saturday, at which time a decision will be made on whether to keep it open and for what hours.

Anon, the way it's been in the past is whatever the first cancelled day would have been, so it will be whatever last Monday was supposed to be.

good to know they're gonna be sending the information out through "E-news" when there are still a good amount of us without power.......

Ashley, what should we do? Send out the Town Crier? As somebody without power, I got the message. There is no perfect solution. If you can recommend something else, than tell us what else should be done.
