Dear Parents,

Attached is the Middlebrook School Family Handbook which contains a lot of important information on policies and guidelines pertaining to Middlebrook School and Trumbull Public Schools.

The students have settled in to the new school year very well. Many individual students and classes have received PAWS tickets for acting responsibly, working with heart and/or showing respect.

We are currently working on a new dismissal procedure for students. We have been using this new procedure for the last 3 days. It does not change the timing of dismissal, but your child may have mentioned this change. All Kindergarten students and grade 1 students have colored plastic tags attached to their backpacks indicating their bus number. Please do not remove these tags. So far the new dismissal procedure has been very organized.

I would like to remind parents that when using the morning drop-off circle please have children exit the passenger side of the car. Parents please remain in the vehicle. There are adults stationed in the drop-off circle to help children exit cars.

Best wishes,

Patricia Frillici, Principal

My School Anywhere
You will be getting your teacher assignment packets from the Trumbull Public School in the mail very soon. Once you receive your child's teacher assignment, please log in to My School Anywhere (MSA) and update your child's teacher in your profile.

By adding your child's teacher when you get your child's packet, you will help create class lists earlier than in previous years! This is also a great time to join the PTA and help make a difference in your child's learning environment. Through your help, the PTA has:

  • built a new playground for children in younger grades,
  • sponsored award winning authors to speak with the school,
  • provided each student with a free book every Spring,
  • maintain the Courtyard learning space,
  • create and support the Learning Commons,
  • and so much more!

Annual Membership dues can be paid through our Store on MSA ($10/one adult family OR $16/two adult family) or by sending a check in to the Middlebrook PTA at the beginning of the school year with the attached form.

PTA MEMBERSHIP
Have you joined the PTA yet ? Some benefits of PTA membership include getting to vote on PTA matters, getting/continuing to get PTA emails and receiving the PTA directory. And there's much more than that. Also, if you would like to be in our directory, please join by October first. By that point, we will start putting the directory together with the membership that has already joined.

DISTRICT NOTICES
  • Food Allergy Notice: (The Management of Food Allergies at School (Updated 8/19/14)) On behalf of the many students with food allergies (some of which can be life threatening) we would appreciate your assistance in keeping our classroom communities safe for all of our children. If there are any allergy concerns in your child's classroom, you will receive a more specific letter during the first week of school. Although manufacturers have become more diligent in indicating allergen status on their products, there is always a danger that foods can be cross-contaminated in production lines. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. San Pietro in the Health Office at 203-452-4412. For more information on food allergies, The Food Allergy Research and Education website (foodallergy.org) is a great resource for all types of food allergies.

The names of all authorized persons should be sent to the Trumbull Public Schools Manager of Transportation (e-mail: perkinsd@trumbullps.org, FAX: (203)-452-4334), or by U.S. mail to: Transportation Department, 6254 Main Street, Trumbull, CT 06611). If there is not an authorized parent or designee at the bus stop for your kindergarten student, we will return the student back to the school. Thank you for continued support in helping to ensure the safety of our students.
