Brandywine Parents/Guardians, no timeline for the restoration of power has been given. Therefore, we will be releasing students early today, Friday, 9/8. Brandywine MSHS will release at 11:30. No lunches will be served. Merritt Elementary will release at 12:40 and Brandywine Elementary will release at 12:50. Regularly scheduled lunches will be served at both elementary buildings and those students who will be released prior to their lunch will be served lunch in the classroom. While the MSHS still has power, we will be releasing them first in case they provide supervision for siblings at home. Phone lines are down at the elementary buildings and BIA so in case of an emergency, please contact Brandywine MSHS at 683-4800. Because the MSHS still has power, tonight's home football game will proceed as scheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Brandywine Parents/Guardians, we are currently experiencing a power outage at three of our four buildings. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available but we want to let you know now that there is the potential for an early release. We know that it will be important for parents to be home for the arrival of our elementary students and will give you at least a one hour notice if we will be releasing early. Due to the power outage, phones are out at Merritt Elementary, Brandywine Elementary, and Brandywine Innovation Academy.
Brandywine Community Schools is excited to offer free breakfast and lunch to ALL students starting this new school year thanks to the Michigan Healthy School Meals Program! Even though meals will be provided for free, it is important for families to continue sharing household income information in order for our schools to receive full access to federal and state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to. Please find the form and more info here: https://5il.co/232u1
