Brookfield Elementary School has been selected as a pilot location for a small group of students to return to in-person instruction for a designated period of time. The purpose of the pilot is to bring greater equity in instructional time for students selecting in-person learning (2 full days each week) versus online learning (4 days a week). The pilot includes students in grades K, 1, 4, and 5. The families of the selected classrooms have been notified.
