Principal Update August 27, 2017

Reported by lisa_sadler@ipsd.org on 8/27/17

Our school halls are alive and active again! I love this time of year when our classrooms are full of students.

Here is what is happening at Brookdale:

FAMILY READING NIGHT - DATE CHANGE
For a variety of reasons, we needed to change the date of our annual Family Reading Night. Our new date is Wednesday, October 11th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Please change your calendars accordingly.

SAFETY DRILLS THIS WEEK
This week, we will engage in several safety drills with the students. We will hold a Lockdown Drill, an Evacuation/Fire Drill and a Severe Weather/Tornado Drill. Practicing these drills helps us see any potential problems in case of a real emergency but also allows students and staff to become familiar with the procedures.

HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC) UPDATED
Please know that the IPSD 204 made some updates to the Home Access Center (HAC). Because of these updates, HAC has a new URL. Please save this link to your favorites for easy access.
For those of you who have the IPSD 204 Family App (or are looking to download it), please follow these directions:
• On the lower left of the Login Screen, click the “Select New District”
• Use one of the methods to select ‘Indian Prairie CUSD 204’
• Sign in with regular HAC credentials
