Parent Intake Conferences for the First Two Weeks of School
K-5th classes will have a reduced schedule the first two weeks of school for Parent Intake Conferences. This is an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher and share information that will help them understand your child better as they begin a new school year. Classroom teachers will reach out to schedule these meetings in the afternoons of the first two weeks of school (through Sept. 1).
The early dismissal "reduced schedule" is as follows:
Transitional Kindergarten (no change in bell schedule): 8:45am-12:40pm
Kindergarten: 8:35am - 12:05pm
1st through 5th Grades: 8:35am - 1:50pm
You Can Still Order School Supplies
Brookside has partnered with SchoolKidz to provide "Teacher Tailored" grade level-specific supply kits for the 2017-18 school year. Brookside teachers carefully created the supply lists for each grade and the supplies will be delivered before the school year begins, giving staff the time to organize and fully prepare their classrooms.

Volunteer for the
Morning Car Line Drop-off
We'll post the parent volunteer sign-up list here for both the Butterfield Road and Brookmeade parking lots once the school year begins. Parent volunteers are key in our efforts to keep our parking lots safe for students and car traffic moving efficiently.
We Need You
Our school community is made more vibrant with volunteers. Your participation is not only welcomed but it is needed and appreciated - at any level that works for you and your family. Volunteer opportunities for the coming school year will be posted soon.
We've partnered with Good Eggs to provide organic produce, meat, fish and delicious staples to your front door.
Safe Routes to School Wednesday Walk and Roll
Every Wednesday, parent volunteers will have a welcome table set up to greet and scan in students as they arrive on campus. Green travel decreases school traffic and creates healthy lifestyle habits.
If your student is new to Brookside and wants to take part in the Walk and Roll program, please print out the registration PDF and return it to the school office.
