Principal's Corner

Dear Bracher Family,

We are all very excited to see our students on Thursday, August 11th. All students will start school at 8:15 am. Breakfast for students will be served at 7:50 am. Students eating breakfast can walk into the multipurpose room to grab breakfast, and supervision will be present to assist them. 

We will have staff helping car traffic in front of our condensed parking lot. Staff will also be on hand to guide students to classes if needed. Parents please plan to drop and drive off as the parking lot is very small and is easily congested.  For walking parents, please note that once school begins you will be expected to leave campus. After the opening of school this week, we ask that you drop your child off and let them enter campus. Parents entering or remaining on campus after school begins must sign in at the school office and receive a visitor's badge. 

Please see the Welcome Back to the 2022-2023 School Year letter from the district office for information regarding the COVID Health and Safety Protocols.

COVID Health and Safety Protocols

Below is a summary from the COVID-19 Safety Measures included in the Welcome Back email sent out from the district office:

At-home screening testing is strongly encouraged prior to the start of school on Thursday, August 11. Please test your student on Wednesday, August 10. Report to your school office any positive tests, symptoms, and exposures to positive COVID cases so that the schools can give you public health instructions.

  • Masks are strongly recommended indoors and in crowded outdoor settings. Please encourage your child to wear a mask while at school indoors to reduce the transmission of respiratory droplets which is the main way COVID-19 is transmitted.

  • Self-Screening / Rapid Testing 

    • At-home, rapid antigen testing is the state’s focus for schools this year; Individuals should test at home when experiencing COVID-like symptoms or after exposure to a positive COVID case. 

    • Stay home and take a test if experiencing COVID-like symptoms.

    • If your child tests positive, isolate at home immediately and alert your school office.

    • Your child may continue at school if exposed to COVID but tests negative and is not experiencing COVID-like symptoms; in these cases, they should wear a mask, test 3-5 days after exposure, and stay home if the test is positive or they begin experiencing symptoms

  • Vaccination: COVID-19 vaccination and boosters are strongly recommended. They are one of our top mitigation strategies.

  • Notices:

    • Notify your school office if your student tests positive for COVID or is a close contact to a positive case at home or in the community.

    • Exposure notices will come from your school office.

Class Assignment: Teachers will email/call families to welcome your child to their class on Wednesday, August 10th.  

New Parent Orientation: A welcome to campus orientation for new parents is being planned and will be communicated with you once a date and time has been determined.
