Bromwell Bulletin

Posted August 24, 2023

August 24th

We have had a successful first week back at schools!  Our Bears are getting into their routines and learning expectations, and we are all looking forward to some cooler weather tomorrow!  Below is some new information, followed by important dates and reminders.

  • Our Bears love playing sports during recess!  Have some old sports equipment laying around like soccer balls, basketballs, tennis balls etc that you wouldn’t miss…. bring ’em on in for students to use at recess.
  • Kiss & Go Drop Off reminders to ensure the safety of our Bears
    • Kiss & Go drop off is available on 3rd Place on the south side of the school from 7:30-7:50. After 7:50, the only entrance to the building will be the main office entrance on 4th Street. DO NOT DROP OFF STUDENTS AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF THE BUILDING BETWEEN 7:30-7:50 AM. Students arriving after 8:00 will need to sign in as tardy at the front office. When using K&G, please follow the following procedures to ensure the school drop off zone is efficient and safe for all families.
    • Adhere to all school zone traffic rules. Come to a complete stop at the stop signs on 3rd Avenue and at Josephine. Drive slowly and attentively through the school Zone.
    • Pull as far forward along the curb as possible*
    • Unload students on the passenger/curb side of the vehicle
    • Do not make u-turns in the Kiss & Go zone
    • Do not stop to unload on the crosswalk
    • If you unload on the south side of the street, make sure your child uses the crosswalk and waits for an orange-vested staff member to cross the street with them.
    • Remain in your vehicle and allow your Bear to unload themselves
      • If your child still requires assistance putting on a coat and backpack, please make it a goal to have them unload independently this year. We have kindergarten bears who are able to unload themselves and put on their own coats and backpacks. Independence is the goal for all our bears.

The Kiss & Go zone may appear mostly empty, but drop off traffic comes in waves and can very quickly back up into the Starbucks intersection. Please help us be good neighbors with the Cherry Creek business district by keeping traffic flowing and keeping this intersection clear.

  • Bromwell will now be offering Saturday School this Fall and Spring for ECE – 5th Grade to provide additional math and literacy time!  It will take place at Bromwell for kids of all learning levels, for no charge, from 9am – 12pm.  If you’re interested, please fill out the 2023-2024 DPS Saturday School Interest Form.
  • Running late in the mornings?  Please complete our Late Check In Form online to make drop off easier!  Need to pick up early?  Please complete our Early Checkout Form online.  **This does not notify the teacher or office what time the child needs to be picked up, please still email your student’s teacher and Ms. Ieasha**

COVID-19 Protocol Reminders

COVID DPS students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate for five days. Day Zero is defined as the day symptoms begin or the day of the positive test.

Isolation may end on Day Five if:

  • Symptoms have ended or symptoms are improving.
  • Individuals are fever-free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medications.

After the five-day isolation has ended and individuals are feeling better, they should wear a high-quality mask — such as a KN95 or N95 — through Day 10. If symptoms are not improving and/or a fever persists past Day Five, isolating until Day 10 is recommended.
