Good afternoon Brent:
In response to the active situation at the Navy Yard, DCPS has placed our school on lockdown as a precautionary measure. This was effective as of 10:59am. Both an e-mail and voice communication was sent shortly thereafter. No one is allowed in or out, except MPD or school security officers. There is limited movement within the school. There will be no outdoor recess. To be clear, your child is safe; there is no reason to be alarmed. Please check the DCPS website for further details. This message will be updated once more details are available.
As of 12:37pm, we are still on lockdown and once I hear from DCPS regarding the status of the lockdown, I will let everyone know. Thanks for your understanding, and know that the students and staff were safe at all times, and Brent was never directly involved with the situation.
Hello Brent Families:
Please find below the Fall 2013 Springboard Elective Brochure. Included is the overall weekly schedule, and then individual descriptions. My overall goal was for the “academic” offerings to be on Tuesdays/Thursdays, and the more “non-academic” offerings to be on Mon/Wed/Fri. Springboard, despite their best efforts, was not able to accomplish this in all cases. As a reminder, the goal is for our after-school math tutoring program to continue this year. It is slated to begin the week of October 7, and will be on Tue/Thur, from 3:30-4:30pm. The math tutoring program will be invite only, and I want to apologize well in advance should your Springboard elective choice conflict with the math program.
So, take a look at the brochure below and please sign-up early so as to secure a spot for your child. Thanks as always, and I look forward to a fabulous beginning to school.
