It’s time to think about the 2021-2022 school year! Students in grades 7-11 have been given their Course Selection Forms to choose their classes for next fall. Students need to have a parent’s signature and have the completed course selection form turned in to Mrs. Nemec no later than 2:30 P.M. on Wednesday, March 17th. Students may see Mrs. Nemec if they have any questions.


Daily Attendance is Important for our Students to be Successful!


Parents - Please check our 2020-2021 District Calendar when making appointments to avoid student absences from school. We understand that some appointments during school can’t be avoided but it’s important to keep the absences to a minimum. The best time to make appointments is after 2:30 pm, on early release afternoons, or days we don’t have school scheduled.


Also, it’s important for our student-athletes to follow the 2020-2021 Brookwood Athletic Handbook absence guidelines to avoid code violations that result in athletic ineligibility.

Brookwood is expected to honor spectator rules at road events, and we will.  PARENTS / FANS SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO GO TO THESE CONTESTS IF THEY DO NOT HAVE TICKETS!

Reminder About Spectator Rules

All winter athletes have received a “Spectator Rules Acknowledgement Form” that must be signed by parents or guardians and returned to the athletics office.  Without this form, an athlete cannot designate spectators.  Parents: please sign and have your son / daughter return this form immediately!!!!


For the current Volleyball season, we will be utilizing a ticket system.  Each player will receive FOUR tickets that they will then distribute to the spectators of their choice. The tickets will be distributed for contests 1 – 2 days in advance.

Spectators using the tickets must:

  • PRINT FULL NAME on the back of the ticket
  • Present the ticket for admission at the door when you attend

Most schools will have the same rules, and we will let athletes know of changes in advance.
