COVID-19 PREVENTION UPDATE
MARCH 18, 2020
Dear Brockton Day Nursery Families,
Out of an abundance of caution, Brockton Day Nursery will be open from 6:30 to 4:30 pm on Thursday March 19 and Friday March 20, 2020. We will be closed beginning Monday, March 23, 2020 to Tuesday April 7, 2020, so that we can help do our part in the continued efforts to prevent COVID-19 in our school. We will re-evaluate again in 2 weeks.
We will continue to keep you updated through Facebook and the website. Brocktonday.org. Please update your contact information to ensure all information can be delivered to you.
We understand that the decision to close BDN is difficult for working families and we greatly apologize for any inconvenience.

Dear BPS Families,
Beginning tomorrow, the district will open six additional drive-up food locations with the hope that those who have transportation challenges will still have a location in walking distance to their home.
Grab-and-go meals will be handed out at all 10 of the following locations from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every week day until the schools reopen:
Angelo School (Right side of the building where students are picked up at dismissal)
Brockton High School (Use Belmont Street Entrance)
East Middle School
North Middle School
South Middle School
As a reminder, students must be present at the time of pickup and we cannot give out extra meals for adult family members. By tomorrow, each location will have printed learning resources available for students. We also have a variety of electronic and printable resources on our website, bpsma.org.
In addition to the breakfast and lunch options available to your child at these 10 locations, beginning tomorrow evening our friends at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro South will generously offer grab-and-go dinners at their Brockton Clubhouse from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. each week day until their clubs resume regular operations. Families should go to the gymnasium double doors on the right-hand side of the Clubhouse, located at 233 Warren Avenue, for service. The Boys and Girls Club must follow the same federal guidelines that we follow which require the student to be present to pick up their meals.
· Xfinity WiFi Free For Everyone: Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the country will be available to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers. For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots, visit www.xfinity.com/wifi. Once at a hotspot, consumers should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser.
Please expect further updates tomorrow.
