    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    We are looking forward to having students back in school! The Briggs staff is working closely with Central Office to prepare for our in-person reopening on October 15.

    Please be reminded of the following return to school items:

    • Updated transportation information will be available on your Realtime Parent Portal.
    • Morning drop-off by parents will take place from 8:45 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. Please pull your vehicle into the circle in front of the building. A staff member will be present to monitor and assist your child as he/she enters the building. 

    • Afternoon pick-up by parents will begin at 1:10 p.m. through 1:20 p.m. prior to bus arrival. Please park at the Star of the Sea Church and walk over to the playground area. Please bring a sign with your child’s name on it, so we can easily connect you with your child when they exit the building.  

    • Students riding the bus will be dismissed at 1:25 p.m.

    • Please note that students are required to wear masks throughout the school day including while riding the bus and entering the building. Please be advised that students who display symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed on the bus.

    • Please watch the First Day of School video below with your child, to familiarize yourselves with the procedures we have in place.

    We look forward to seeing students soon!

    Mrs. De Brito
