A reminder that school Picture Day is coming to Brewer High School Tuesday, September 21. Ordering information was distributed to students last week. However, if parents/guardians didn't receive one, we have more available here in the main office.
Good afternoon. In light of the information just sent out from Superintendent Palmer regarding Brewer High School being designated as 'outbreak' status for Covid-19, we will be canceling our Open House scheduled for this evening. We are doing so out of an abundance of caution and to minimize the possibility of further community transmission. We apologize for the short notice and appreciate the support and confidence that Brewer High School families have given us as we work through these situations together. The Brewer School Department will keep everyone posted with any new developments. Thanks, Brent Slowikowski Principal
Good morning. We'd like to invite all Brewer High School students and their parents/guardians to our Open House, Thursday, September 9. Stop by anytime between 6:00 PM and 7:30 PM to tour the school, see the new renovations in the 100 and 200 Wings, and meet your student's teachers. We'll also have a question & answer sessions for freshman parents/guardians at 6:30 PM. We hope to see you on Thursday. Go Witches!

Graduating seniors need to be at Brewer High School no later than 8:00 AM on Wednesday. Day 2 of marching practice will be on Thursday, also at 8 AM. Please note: Marching practice is mandatory for both days, so graduating seniors need to plan accordingly. Also, seniors need to check their student balances and make sure those are paid before marching practice begins. Finally, seniors and their families need to make sure to check your emails regularly for updates and further information.

2/2/2021 Brewer Schools will be canceled Tuesday, February 2nd due to the approaching winter storm. In Brewer this means there will be no academic program, no remote learning. It is a traditional snow day. Our food services program will also be closed to protect the safety of those staff. This does not affect co and extra curricular activities the evening of Wednesday, February 1st since the storm will not hit until closer to midnight. It is atypical to cancel the evening before a storm, but the certainty of the forecast, and what will be dangerous conditions makes me want to send the message in support of keeping our students (and families) off the roads in the morning if at all possible. Brewer Central Office will also be closed for our staff's safety. Sincerely, Gregg Palmer, Superintendent of Schools he/him/his
