As a gentle reminder, School Dismissal Manager is up and running. We encourage you to use SDM for all dismissal changes. You may even report your student’s absence or late arrival using SDM! If you are having problems logging on or are unsure how to use SDM, please call the office, we’re here to help you. Here are a few tips for some common questions.
 
Question Answer
How do I indicate my student will still be going home the same way, just with someone else? Select the day on your calendar, then under Dismissal Exceptions select your normal dismissal and put the name of the other person in the notes section.
I only see buttons for Arriving Late and Leaving Early, Coming Back.
 
How do I put in Leaving Early, NOT Coming Back?
Leaving Early, Not Coming Back is an option on the pull-down menu under Dismissal Exceptions.
I want to put my student in as a Walker but the only option I see is ½ Day K Walker (at Door #2).
How do I put in Walker?
There is an option K-3 Walker on the pull-down menu under Dismissal Exceptions. Scroll down to after the bus lists.
Please put the name of the person picking up in the notes field.

Please read the important Snack Notice from our Nurses
 
Dear Bresnahan Parents and Guardians,
 
In order to provide a safe learning environment for all our students throughout the year, we need your help. There are students in our school who have If these students consume even a trace amount of the allergen they are at risk for anaphylaxis, a potentially life- threatening allergic reaction. Strict avoidance is the best way to provide a safe environment.
 
For this reason, we are asking that you do not send your child to school with snacks that contain any peanuts or tree nuts.
 
We understand that peanuts and tree nuts can be part of a very healthy diet. Students can bring in peanut or tree nut products for lunch.We have allergy sensitive tables located in the cafeteria. Only a student with a life-threatening allergy or a student who has purchased a lunch may sit at these tables. 
 
Before sending in any food to be eaten in the classroom (snacks), please do the following: 
  • Read the product label—do not send in foods that list nuts or peanuts as an ingredient or possible ingredient. 
  • Send foods in their original packages. For foods that are not prepackaged, we prefer that an ingredient label is attached to the outside of a sealed zip lock bag (ask your child to bring the labels home so they can be reused). 
  • Please remind your child not to share snacks or lunches. Although sharing is well intended by your child, it could have serious consequences.  Sharing of food is not promoted at the Bresnahan School.  
 
Thank you for making the Bresnahan Elementary School a safe, healthy and caring place for all students.
 
If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
 
Sincerely,
