Brent ES Operating Status Update - 9:10 A.M.
We just received notification from DCPS that due to the high winds, all DCPS schools are now closed. We understand there has been conflicting information about school operating status this morning. We also understand this is a rare weather event coupled with parent teacher conference day.
Our Brent plan is that parent conferences currently in progress will finish. If you have not yet started your conference, it will either be rescheduled through direct communication with your classroom teacher or be offered as a phone conference. Teachers will communicate the rescheduling plan – specific to their classroom.
DCPS has begun requiring that parents who serve as chaperones on field trips, must be cleared through a DCPS volunteer background check. We obviously need Brent families to complete this process as soon as possible so Spring field trips can proceed.
The process is:
1. Complete a Volunteer Clearance Application found at https://octo.quickbase. com/db/bg37a865t?a=nwr&_ fid_274=Volunteer
