News and Notes

Reminder: No School Friday (9/1) or Monday (9/4)

Friday, September 1st, and Monday, September 4th, are school holidays. We hope our students and staff have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday!

Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow!

The beginning of the school year is the best time to develop strong attendance habits! Students who attend school regularly are more likely to perform well in reading and math, develop strong social and emotional skills, and graduate from high school on time. Help prepare your child for future success. Watch this video with tips from Fairfax Pyramid principals and visit FCPS’ Attendance webpage for tips and strategies. 

Breakfast and Lunch: Free for Everyone

Great news! All students at Brookfield are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school regardless of their household income in the  2023-2024 school year. No further action is required of families. All child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. Check out the menus.
