WB has NEW Food Menus!
WB has new breakfast and lunch menus!  They look different (each week is color coded) and are good for 5 months.  So that means, menus will only be sent home twice a year instead of once a month.  Menus can also be found under the Food Services tab on our website, in our school offices, and posted in most elementary and middle school teachers rooms. We can save paper and make it easier for you to figure out what's for breakfast and lunch at Western Brown.
Date Expires:   (mm/dd/yyyy format)

Western Brown Safety Plan Notification

Western Brown School District has reviewed and revised our School Emergency Operations Plan and as a result, we are making parents aware of the Parental Notification Procedures to be implemented in the event of an incident. This protocol can be found below and on our web site. Please make every attempt to keep your contact information current and notify the building secretary of any changes in your contact information.

Staff and Parental Notification Procedures:

In the event of an incident, communication will be provided through the one-call system to inform parents / staff and to provide additional information.  

Parents and staff, Pesticide Application notifications will be posted on the school's website under the Maintenance tab on the left hand side.
Western Brown also offers the SafeSchools Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration four different ways:
1.  Phone:  1-855-4ALERT1, ext 1116
2.  Text:  #1116 @tip+your tip to ALERT1 (252781)
3.  Email:  [email protected]
4.  Web:  http:1116.alert1.us
You can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism or any safety issue you're concerned about through SafeSchools Alert.  When you submit a tip, be sure to use our district's identification code:1116.   Please refer the tip to the appropriate building and make sure your tip concerns a school issue.  Together we can make our district a safer place to work and learn!
