Principal Update July 18, 2017

Reported by lisa_sadler@ipsd.org on 7/18/17

Here is the latest update from a sleepy and empty Brookdale School:

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS
At this time, our office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 12:00pm and 1:00pm to 3:00pm. If you need to come by the school office during the summer, please call before coming as we do take an occasional vacation day.

WEED CONTROL APPLICATION
On Friday, July 21st, the District's Buildings and Grounds will be applying an application to control weeds to all hard areas (sidewalks, etc) and mulch areas. Please see the attached notice for more information.

REGISTRATION FOR 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR
There are still some families that need to complete the registration process. There are three potential steps for registration:
• You need to access Home Access Center to update your child's information online.
• Some parents need to verify residency. A letter was sent via US Post Office to indicate if you need to do this step.
• If you have a lease that expires prior to the first day of school (August 23, 2017), we will need a new copy of the lease. This is for all leased properties, even if you received a letter that your address was verified.
• Bring in the completed white health card, necessary health forms (if applicable) and pay for school fees.
If you need help or have questions in completing any of the registration process, please contact Mrs. Minch or Mrs. Yep. They would be excited to assist you!

DUPAGE COUNTY'S BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR
We are happy to announce the 27th Annual Back to School Fair for DuPage County. Catholic Charities sponsors this fair which will be located at St. Francis High School in Wheaton on Wednesday, August 2nd from 11:00am to 6:00pm. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
