As Tropical Storm Idalia occupies our attention, please rest assured that Brooks County Schools are actively monitoring the storm. We are in constant contact with local and state emergency management as well as local stakeholders. As of this moment, no decisions have been made in reference to the status of school closings. It is simply too early to make those determinations. We continue to be involved in several briefings throughout the day to ensure we have the most current information. We recommend that everyone visit the Brooks County 911/EMA Facebook page and download the CodeRed App. The free app is used nationwide and will provide real time emergency information for your area. The safety and welfare of our students and staff as well the entire Trojan community remains our top priority.
We need your help! Our school is implementing a whole-school transformational process called the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
Our school will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. Parent input is a very important part of this process. If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey (without sharing your name or other identifying information) that will be available through the weblink below.
The parent/guardian survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. If you have more than one child attending the school, you will be asked to think about the oldest child's experiences as you answer questions related to his or her growth.
Please take this survey: https://www.leaderinme.com/s/quitman-elementary/families
Please help! We hope to have at least 100 parents complete the survery.
Trojans, the Open House Schedule and the School Supply Lists are available on the district website. We are looking forward to a great year with the #bestOfBrooks!
