Drop-off and Pick-up

ECE students are dropped off and picked up through the playground doors just west of the cafeteria entrance. All ECE students should be dropped off at 8:55 a.m.

Classroom Schedule

Your child’s teacher will describe the classroom schedule on Back to School Night. A typical day involves experiential learning, including a rotation of specials classes such as Gym, Music, Art and Spanish. At this young age, learning periods are interspersed with two recess breaks, snacks, as well as an afternoon quiet or nap time.


Your child will be accompanied, by an adult, to the bathroom.


Brown offers a hot cafeteria lunch including a kid-friendly salad bar. Walking to the cafeteria and buying lunch may be a new experience for full-day ECE students. As a result, Brown staff ensure that children quickly learn the routine. Classes line up and walk to the lunchroom together, where those who brought their own lunch go to sit at a table, and those buying “hot” lunch are helped through the lunch line by the paraprofessional. Parents are always welcome to join their child in the cafeteria and may also purchase lunch. Learn more about breakfast and lunch at Brown.

School Information and Updates

The school regularly sends home information on school activities and events in students’ “Friday Folders” at the end of each week. Please encourage your child to bring this information home to you and to return the folder to the teacher on Monday.

Before- and After-School Programs

Kaleidoscope Corner is available before and after school for full-day ECE students. Kaleidoscope staff drop off and pick up the children from their classrooms. Kids typically spend their time working on projects in the cafeteria and playing in the gym or on the playground. More information on Kaleidoscope can be found at kaleidoscope.dpsk12.org.
