Box Tops Now Digital

Box Tops have gone digital! Download the app, Box Tops for Education, and under settings, you can select Brush Creek Elementary. You can see what items earn box tops, scan your receipt, and earn without cutting a thing! Mrs. Hoffman will be taking box tops this school year, so students can still turn them into her as well.

E-Learning Day

Friday, February 12, 2021, will be an E-Learning day. On this day, students will work from home on Google Classroom.

Winter Parent-Teacher Conferences

Teachers will contact you directly if your student is in need of a conference for this school year. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

COVID-19 Testing Protocol

If someone in your home tests positive for COVID-19 or has a pending COVID-19 test, please keep your child at home and contact Nurse Susie at (812) 458-6582. Thank you!

Attendance

Any time a student is going to be absent from school, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to call the school and report the reason for the student’s absence. Please note, students who are absent the entire day, the day before a field trip, for reasons other than a pre-arranged appointment, or a pre-approved absence will not be able to go on the field trip. If your student shows symptoms of COVID-19, please keep them home for ten days unless you have medical documentation allowing your child to return to school. If your child begins showing symptoms over the weekend or during a school vacation, please follow these same guidelines.
