    Dear Meadowbrook Elementary Families & Community,

    A few key updates:

    • We are currently completing a full eLearning model

    • A return to school for in-school eLearning is expected in October. A School Board meeting is set for September 22 to finalize plans.  A parent survey to determine which students will return to school and remain home for eLearning is expected shortly
    • The latest updates on school reopening and eLearning can be found at www.browardschools.com

    I am very excited to continue into my second year as principal at Meadowbrook Elementary School.  Our theme for 2020-2021 is “Soaring to Excellence” and our vision remains “Meadowbrook will provide rigorous standards-based instruction to meet the needs of the 21st Century learner in a safe and secure learning environment.”  We look forward to working with our students, families, PTA, community and Partners in Education to make this a very special year for Meadowbrook Elementary School.  We invite you to join us in our vision and reaching our goals.  Follow me on Twitter at @MeadowbrookElem and contact the office at 754-323-6500 to confirm that your contact information, address and cell phone is current.
