HELLO, BROCKBANK FAMILIES!
It was fun to have picture day today! Our students smiled so brightly and it was good to see
some teeth for just a split second!
We are very excited for our Reflections Contest! Reflections is a contest where students can
share their creativity through art, music, dance, etc.! It is a great way for students to recognize
their abilities and talents! Thanks to our PTA who is helping us get this underway! It will be

HALLOWEEN DRESS UP
This year we will celebrate Halloween on October 29th. We will not be having a parade and our
teachers will be in charge of any type of party/activities. Our wonderful PTA will be bringing in a
special treat for our little goblins!
Please remember our policy for costumes:
*No blood or gore
*No scary, bloody, vulgar costumes
*No Halloween masks-just our safe, cloth masks
*Face paint is fine, but please help out your child where he/she will be wearing a mask-it may
get messy for him/her.
*Dress policy is still mandated.
Parents, please help your child follow the Nebo School District Dress Policy. Please make
sure of the following:
*Shorts/skirts are longer than the point of the fingertips when arms are placed straight
*All shirts MUST cover shoulders-no tank-tops, spaghetti string type straps.
*Clothing must be clean.
*Hats are not to be worn in school.
UTAH RESILIENCY MESSAGE

Wash My Hands Challenge
I hope you are all filling in the bright green Box Top form with lots of Box Tops! Our awesome
PTA is challenging our students to bring these forms back to school, filled up, by October 26th.
Box Tops help our school earn money for great things, like our water fountains, that also fill up
water bottles. Box Top money helped purchase the marquee! Thanks to our PTA for ways to
support our students!
Students in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades will have their hearing tested on September
Thank you, parents, for following the laws and for driving slowly and carefully when picking up
your child. I see parents slowing down and being considerate of other drivers while picking up
Please also be aware of the following:
*Please do not flip a U-Turn on 300 West. In the morning or afternoon, there are too many
students that are walking and crossing the streets, and too many parents driving in and out of
the school grounds, that this is an unsafe practice. Please follow the laws!
*Please cross at the intersections and do not have your child cross with you in the middle of
the road. Please be an example of safety!
*If you park in the parking lot, please get out of your car and go and wait for your child so
he/she is not crossing alone in front of buses and cars.
If your child attends Brockbank, he/she is entitled to free lunch and breakfast. This will be for
a limited time.
For remote and Kindergarten students:
*Lunches will be in a closed container.
*Parents will need to call the school between 8:45-9:15 and order school lunch.
*Remote Learner Parents will need to pick up their child's lunch and breakfast in the office
between 10:45-11:00 (change from the email on Saturday).
*AM kindergarten students will have their lunches sent home with them. We are going to try to
have the lunches in a bag for easy pick up. You are welcome to send a backpack with your
child if you want his/her lunch in the backpack. For bus students, we are going to try and place
the lunches all together in a box on the bus. As children get off the bus, they will then take
their lunch with them.
*PM kindergarten students will need to be at school at 11:40 to eat lunch in the lunchroom.
Students will need to come to the west entrance of the lunchroom, get their lunch and sit at a
designated table. We will then help them get to their classrooms.
