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

Please help the State of Maine "Get Up To Speed" with its broadband service. This initiative was overwhelmingly supported by Maine voters in July. However, in order to collect accurate data to evaluate the needs, they are asking people across the state to conduct speed tests. Please do this at home, your camp, and share with others! It will benefit everyone in the state to improve our broadband service! Click on this link: https://5il.co/p1gd

This Thursday and Friday, BCS is having a Spirit Day! This time, it is Color Day. Students are encouraged to dress as much as they can in a single color. So, in order to be in the spirit of the day, students in a classroom don't have to dress all in the same color. Instead, they get to use what they have to try to deck themselves out in a single color, so each classroom will be like a field of wildflowers, with all of the different colors represented.

12.1.2020 Dear Brewer Schools' Families, Brewer Community School (BCS) has power, heat, and internet and the city's roads are clear so BCS will have school today. Brewer High School (BHS) had a remote learning day for cohort B planned for today with at-school learning previously cancelled due to the recent cases of COVID-19. Due to power outages in RSU 63 and Orrington and Dedham that remote day for cohort B will likely be postponed to Wednesday, December 2. This means that cohort A would not have a remote learning day on Wednesday. Principal Slowikowski will follow up with BHS families to confirm this schedule and these changes. Brewer High School will return to its regular remote schedule including in-person instructional day for cohort A on Thursday, December 2; and for cohort B on Friday, December 3. Sincerely, Gregg Palmer, Superintendent
