Dear Braeburn Families,
Happy 2nd day of school! 
We hope the start of this new school year finds you all healthy and well.  As we launch this year, the PTB is focused on improving communication and outreach to parents to ensure that all families in our community are properly supported during these unusual times. See below for a list of COVID-19 Support Resources for Braeburn Students & Families
We’ve created a survey to help families connect with other parents and kids at Braeburn for distance learning help, hybrid support, and  social connection. Please take the survey here:
We'll also be launching a new Facebook group dedicated to centralizing communication and resources for Braeburn families.  If you have any suggestions or would like to assist in this effort, please contact Lauren Messner at lgmessner@gmail.com.
We look forward to being in touch with you all and working together to make the 2020-21 school year fun and engaging !
