Snow Conditions

Brooks School does not normally suspend classes during snowstorms or other extreme weather conditions. Day student families are asked to make their own decision about the safety of travel and to notify the school in cases of absence due to weather conditions. A student who is unable to travel to school due to weather conditions will be able to join class virtually in these circumstances. Likewise, a teacher who is unable to travel to campus for class will be able to hold a virtual class, and will communicate this decision directly to the students.

Winter Term photo albums are up and being frequently updated. Wondering what students are up to during this special session? Sneak a peek in the galleries!

The campus community enjoyed a wonderful holiday service, including chamber orchestra and concert chorale performances, on Dec. 16. See photos and video from the festivities.

Prior to Winter Break, Brooks musicians treated the campus community to a couple of concerts:

Advanced Jazz Band, December 8:

Winterfest, December 7:
