Volunteers Still Needed
 
We still need parent volunteers to make Open House a success and keep wait times down. There are two different shifts (8-10 and 10-12), and we have no volunteers signed up for the second shiftEven if you can't give two hours, any time you can give will help! Thank you!!
 
 
Important Open House Update!
 
First, just a reminder that Briarlake's Open House will be on Wednesday, August 1st from 8am-12pm. *Note that this is different from the Open House information distributed by Dekalb County.*

Now for the Update... 
We have a new time saver for Open House!! You can not only go to Membership Toolkit and complete the tasks listed below to get your FAST PASS, but we have found a way to save you time in the classroom, too. In Membership Toolkit, you will now see two new choices on the home page: BLES Open House Forms and Dekalb Medication Authorization Forms. The BLES forms are the forms you would usually sit and fill out in the classroom (these are all required). The Medication Forms are the forms you would need to authorize school to administer any medications to your child (there is a separate form for prescription and non-prescription medication). You will still have to fill out 2 green student locator cards for each student in the classrooms, but the other forms are now available for download. So, if you'd like to save time, follow the steps below!
  1. Visit Membership Toolkit here
  2. Download the forms you need
  3. Fill them out at home, and 
  4. Bring them with you to give to your child's teacher
