Teacher Meet and Greet

Teacher Meet and Greet

August 21, 2:00-3:00

Dear Brooks Families,

I have recently been asked why we scheduled Teacher Meet and Greet for the same time as the Solar Eclipse. I’d like to take a moment to explain the timing. Prior to the first day of school, teachers are required to work 3 professional days. One of those days is for district professional development, one is a teacher workday with no meetings scheduled and the third is a building institute day. The building institute day is the only day available for Meet and Greet and unfortunately, that falls on August 21. Due to the complexity of our building professional development day and schedule, it requires us to hold Meet and Greet in the afternoon. Therefore, here are some things to consider if you are concerned about its timing with the eclipse.

If you are planning to view the eclipse in Carbondale, we are thrilled your family has that opportunity. Your child will meet his or her teacher on the first day of school and will be welcomed with open arms.
If you are planning to attend Meet and Greet and are concerned about your child going outside to view the eclipse, we encourage you to keep your child with you while visiting classrooms.
We welcome you outside at 3:00 for the PTA ice cream social. According to most documents reviewed, the eclipse will conclude by that time.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to kicking off our school year in the upcoming weeks!
