Our First School Dance of the Year!
Friday October 3rd
Next week will be the first dance of the school year! Our dances are typically sponsored by the Reeds Brook Student Council. Admission is $5.00 and concessions are also available for purchase. This year cell phones and other such devices with camera or video capability will no longer be allowed at school dances. Students should pre-arrange for a ride home promptly at 9:00 p.m. when the dance concludes. If a student needs to call home for another reason, our school landline will be available for emergency use. Thank you for asking that cell phones and other devices remain at home. If a student arrives at the dance with a device, it will be held by Student Council chaperones for the duration of the dance. We will have a procedure in place to label phones and return phones by user.
We know there have been some challenges in accessing PowerSchool accounts. We are asking that parents read the link below that shares special details about establishing a new account using your assigned username and password.
