Before School Coverage

Students arriving before 8:00 a.m. go to Early Birds in the DiCroce Library. The mixed age group of students (EC–8) may arrive beginning at 7:30 a.m. in the library. Early Birds Staff supervise students as they read, color, review their homework, work on the computer, and play quiet games. Students should sign up in advance through the annual registration process, but drop in service is also available without prior sign up. All early arrivals enter through the main lobby and Lower School students must be escorted to the library. Early Birds begins on September 12, 2022.


Attendance

Students arriving after 8:20 a.m. sign in at the front office. Lower School parents sign in their child(ren) and Upper School students can sign themselves in. Please contact the front office by phone at (978) 526-4500 or email frontdesk@brookwood.edu by 9:00 a.m. if your child is going to be absent/late or you are running late for afternoon pick-up.


Early Dismissals

A parent or an authorized adult must sign out any student leaving school before the official end of the day. The sign out sheet is located in the front office. Students wait inside the building in the front lobby to be picked up by the adult signing them out. If a child is to be excused early or leave school with someone other than a parent or authorized adult, a written note must be sent in with the student or a telephone call made/email sent to the front office in the morning.


Bus Service

Brookwood offers a family-friendly bus service from a variety of towns, with families either signing-up for a full year of service starting each September or using the service on an occasional drop-in basis. If your child needs to be added, or if he or she rides the bus consistently and needs to be removed on any given day, please contact the front office by 1:00 p.m. by phone at (978) 526-4500 or email frontdesk@brookwood.edu.
