On this Veterans Day, we honor those who honored our country with its highest form of service: Those who once wore the uniform of our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard. We owe you our thanks. We owe you our respect. And we owe you our freedom. Friendly reminder that all schools and district offices are closed today, Friday, November 10th, in observance of Veterans Day. #teambrunswickme

October 26, 2023 6:00 PM Dear Staff, Parents, and Students: Once again, our nation and now our beloved State of Maine are mourning after another senseless and tragic mass shooting. Never, never, in my lifetime did I believe this could ever happen in Maine, yet here we are. My thoughts go out to the individuals who've lost their lives, the victims still in critical care, their families, first responders, and everyone affected by this atrocious act of violence. Many in Brunswick are personally affected by this tragedy and are mourning the loss of friends and family. My thoughts go out to them, and I also recognize that many of our staff members are residents of the Lewiston and Lisbon areas. My highest priority was and remains our Brunswick students' and staff's safety and security. Today, I met several times with members of our District Crisis Response Team. I have also communicated numerous times with Brunswick Chief of Police Stewart and area school superintendents. Due to the devastating impact this event has had on our staff, students, and families, as well as our community's safety, I decided to close school for students and all staff again on Friday, October 27. On Monday, October 30, the Brunswick School Department will have a two (2) hour delay of school. This additional time will allow our staff to carefully prepare for conversations with our students and how we can best support them during this difficult time. Just to remind you, there are resources for families located here. I hope they are helpful to you. Thank you in advance for working with us to support our students and staff during this horrible tragedy. Sincerely, Superintendent Potenziano

Information on resources for supporting students and adults in the face of this tragedy will be shared by email later this morning. Sincerely, Superintendent Potenziano

November 15, 2022 Good Morning: Please be aware that there have been multiple reports of violent intruders in Maine high schools this morning. Based on law enforcement investigations, no reports have been confirmed and these appear to be hoaxes. Brunswick schools have dynamic and comprehensive safety and security protocols and ALL exterior doors are locked throughout the day. We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide updates as they are warranted. Thank you. Shawn Lambert, Assistant Superintendent

Pressherald: https://www.pressherald.com/2021/12/07/briefs-340/ BRUNSWICK REAL School wins outdoor challenge The REAL School of Brunswick was the top performer of the Teens to Trails’ Life Happens Outside Challenge, launched in October to foster an appreciation for the outdoors and its many wellness benefits for Maine youth. Twenty-two middle and high schools from across the state participated in the week-long challenge, tracking and logging their outdoor activities for a chance to win $1,000 for the most outdoor hours recorded in proportion to their school size. The cash prize is offered by Arcadia, a climate crisis–fighting tech company. Greely High School of Cumberland placed second, followed by Brunswick High School. REAL School education tech Melissa Cleaves said that activities included a staff and student hike up Rattlesnake Mountain in Casco, a meditation walk, classwork and jigsaw puzzling outdoors, dog-walking, yard work, and warming up by a bonfire. Cleaves said her students have a lot of ideas about spending the prize money, including a return of overnight camping trips to Tumbledown and Katahdin, purchasing gear for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, or a trip to the Boston Aquarium.
