The Brent Elementary PTA is hosting a summer play date on Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to noon at Canal Park (200 M St SE, Washington, DC 20003). This is a terrific opportunity for your child and family to get to know members of the Brent community!
On Tuesday, April 2, PS3 – 4th grade students received a re-enrollment packet. All returning and new families must submit the required enrollment forms and present current residency verification documents in person to the front office by Wednesday, May 1, 2019. Given the large number of families on the waiting list for a seat at Brent, it is important that current families complete this process by the deadline. For families who will be using utility bills as part of residency verification, please note that this year, utility bills must have a separate proof of payment. The proof of payment can be a receipt, a cleared check, a print out of the online payment or the next month’s bill showing the payment for the previous month. Enrollment forms can also be downloaded here: http://enrolldcps.dc.gov/node/76. If you have any questions about the enrollment process, contact Denise Diggs at denise.diggs@ dc.gov.

Dear Brent Community,
DC's Department of Health has issued a letter to our community after we reported a case of Scarlett Fever in a child at Brent this week. Scarlet Fever is caused by bacteria called group A Streptococcus or group A strep. Please take a moment to read the letter and review the fact sheet. Links to each document are below:
Scarlett Fever Letter
Scarlett Fever Fact Sheet
In addition to regular cleaning, Brent’s custodial team has disinfected high touch surfaces, tables, and chairs in the classroom with the case of Scarlett Fever, and will conduct a deep cleaning over the mid-Winter Break.
If you have any questions, please feel to reach out to Brent’s school nurse, Ms. Lee at (202) 698-3367 and Jlee6@cnmc.org.
Thank you for taking the time to review this information.
Did you pick out some uniform items at the used uniform table or want to donate to the program? You found the place to do it! All donations are given to the school to purchase uniforms for students in need.
