Collaborative School Committee (CSC) Nomination for 1 Parent Representative (2-year term)
Nominations are due TUESDAY AUGUST 31st – Collaborative School Committee (CSC) brings together families, staff, and community members to create and implement a plan to promote high achievement within a school. This committee meets monthly throughout the school year. More information can be found in the attachment below (Nomination form can be found here).
Health Absence Line and Covid Protocol – If your child will be absent because of illness, please call Nurse Brooke/Ashley Baker at 720.424.9340. For all other absences, please call the Attendance Line at 720-424-9380 or email Bromwell_Attendance@dpsk12.org by 8:15 a.m.
Quarantining/Positive COVID-19 Cases – During the 2021/22 school year, our goals regarding COVID-19 continue to be keeping our community safe and ensuring our students are in school with minimal disruption to learning. CDC is learning more about how COVID 19 spreads and affects people and communities. With this information, the CDPHE is guiding the rules and regulations regarding quarantining an entire classroom. CDPHE’s new guidelines do not require quarantine for “routine classroom exposure.” Unvaccinated students that test positive for COVID-19, or who have had close contact (defined as being within 3 feet for longer than 15 minutes indoors) with someone that has tested positive, will still be expected to quarantine based on CDPHE guidelines (10 days if not exhibiting symptoms (no testing required) OR 7 days if not exhibiting symptoms with proof of a negative PCR or Molecular COVID-19 test result. The test cannot be given earlier than day 5 from the last exposure and they cannot be in close contact with high-risk people). Most fully vaccinated staff and our students will not be required to quarantine due to exposure but are encouraged to follow the testing and masking recommendation of CDC (testing 3-5 days after exposure, even if symptoms are not present, and continuing to wear a mask indoors at school). Please report all suspected and positive COVID 19 results to Nurse Brooke (or our health tech Ashley Baker) at 720.424.9340.
Bromwell is a Nut Safe School – Nut-free lunches will be served this year at Bromwell. Originally we had a nut free table, but due to COVID-19 protocols, there is a new seating chart that does not allow for the nut free table. Because of this we ask that all parents sending lunches with their children ensure they are nut free. Nurse Brooke will be providing additional information soon to include further details on being a “Nut Safe School.”
Volunteering at Bromwell – We love seeing the eagerness amongst our community to help support Bromwell. Hopefully, most parents and caregivers are seeing printed communication regarding volunteer opportunities. There are updated resources in Flyer as well. We are hoping to engage those who can give a little time in addition to those who can give a lot this year! To learn more, please touch base with your room parent, or fill out this form from the parent volunteer coordinator, Erin Phelan (she’s coordinating all volunteer roles for the school, and not just PTA ones). Also, please be sure to complete your application here. https://forms.gle/g5XExw33VXntKEsU7
Further Opportunities to Support Bromwell – Amazon Smile has a continuous fundraiser for Bromwell families. It’s super easy to participate and costs you nothing! We currently raise about $1000/year from Amazon smile but we KNOW we can do better than that. Please find some additional information in the attachment below.
