Cell Phones: Brinton's Policy Top
All cell phones must be turned off upon arrival at the school grounds (at the sidewalk perimeter).
Cell phones are put away in a backpack. Cell phones are never out or in use while a student is on campus.
If a student is observed using a cell phone, including texting, or if it rings on campus, it will be confiscated and given to the principal.
A parent will be required to come to school to pick up the phone.
The school is not responsible for cell phone theft or damage.
A student may receive discipline consequences for not following this policy.

Each family will be provided with a family handbook, which covers the general rules of the school.

Exterior doors remain locked at all times. All visitors must wear a visitor badge which they are provided when they go to the main office to sign-in. Anyone on campus not recognized as staff or not wearing a visitor badge will be escorted to the main office by school personnel.

Contacting my child’s teacher? Top
All of the teachers' classroom phone numbers may be found by clicking on Staff on the Brinton Home Page. Teachers are available for phone calls before school and after school hours. During regular school hours you may leave a voice-mail, and the teacher will return your call when the school day is over. Calls are not permitted into the classroom during times of instruction.
School lunches Top
The cost of lunch includes the main entrée, sides and milk or juice.
Each child will have an individual account so that you can pay in advance by cash or by check, in any amount. As the account is nearing its end, you will be notified several days in advance.

The child could also pay on a daily basis, but that is up to you to decide with your child. The website to pay online for school lunches is MyLunchMoney.com.
