  • If your child is staying home from school, please telephone the school at 423-1200 IN THE MORNING ON THE DAY OF THE ABSENCE. For your convenience, there is a 24-hour voicemail on which messages can be left. Any absences that are not reported by a parent or guardian will be recorded as an unexcused absence in the student’s permanent record.






On August 21, skywatchers across the country will experience a solar eclipse. The eclipse begins at 9:01 a.m., the max eclipse is at 10:15 a.m., and the eclipse ends at 11:37 a.m. Below are some guidelines and resources to help you make this a safe, teachable moment for students and staff.


Take time to educate your students about what an eclipse is and how to view it safely. Follow the eclipse safety guidelines provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the American Astronomical Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Optometry, the American Optometric Association, and the National Science Foundation. Additional educational resources are available on NASA’s Eclipse 101 website.


Whether or not you and your class participate in an outdoor experience is up to each site, we only ask that you follow the NASA eclipse safety guidelines. If you would like to view the eclipse indoors with your students, you can watch the eclipse live at the Exploratorium website.


Additionally, parents and community members will receive these same guidelines and resources from the district over the next several days and which all point back to an Eclipse 101 article on our website. Sites and teachers are encouraged to share this same information with parents through your own communication channels.



Have fun and be safe!

Please note that the teachers are busy working in their classrooms getting ready for students.  


The school campus is closed until Wednesday, August 16 - the first day of school. 


See you then!


Thank you 

Estimadas Familias de Bracher,


¡Bienvenidos al año escolar 2017-2018! ¡Estamos emocionados de tenerlos aquí!


Tome en cuenta que las maestras están ocupadas trabajando en sus salones para prepararse para los estudiantes.


La escuela está cerrada hasta el miércoles 16 de agosto - el primer día de escuela. ¡Hasta entonces!




Kindergarteners will need to bring their own backpacks this year; Bracher will no longer be giving Kindergarteners backpacks.

If this creates a hardship, please contact office staff.



Los estudiantes de Kínder tendrán que traer sus propias mochilas este año, Bracher ya no estará dando mochilas.

Si esto crea una dificultad, comuníquese con el personal de la oficina.


Thank you/ Gracias
