Our Transportation Department has started Schootles a recognition, a compliment, or pat on the back for a job well-done award. An award for doing something exemplary or well earned praise for bus drivers and van drivers. Schooltles can be passed along by colleagues, staff, administrators, parents, school board members, community members, and students by sending an email to the Director of Transportation, Michelle Caron mcaron@brunswicksd.org explaining why the driver should have Schooltles on display on the dashboard of their vehicle. If you see Schooltles on the dash be sure to ask the driver what they did to earn Schooltles. Simply say, "Hey you got Schooltles, what did you do?" I would like to bring recognition and positivity to the Brunswick School Department's fleet drivers. Schooltles will be riding on Bus 51, Mr. Leo's bus. Mr. Leo went above and beyond before the start of school. Be sure to ask him when you see him, "what did you do?"

The Brunswick School Department hopes you had a great Thanksgiving. Please remember that those who travelled outside of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont must quarantine for 14 days from the date of their return to the state or demonstrate that they have a negative COVID-19 test taken since they returned to the state. Students or staff members who travelled outside of those three states must bring a copy of negative results when they return to school or stay home until the 14 day quarantine period has ended. Thank you for supporting efforts to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment in our schools.
