Briggs School District, Olivelands and Briggs Schools will be closed for Winter Break. 
Classes will resume on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 8:00 AM!


The Briggs School District and this community have never before faced a disaster of this magnitude.  Even after a week into this tragic event, we are still monitoring  adverse conditions that are highly unstable. Briggs School District clearly understands the factors that are created for families when school is closed but the decision was made as the only choice in the best interest of students and BESD staff.  Some of the factors that led to this decision were continued poor outside air quality, unstable conditions and weather predictions. We do not take these decisions lightly. It is our goal that school will reopen in January and we look forward to seeing all of our students and families.

El Distrito Escolar de Briggs y esta comunidad nunca antes se han enfrentado a un desastre de esta magnitud. Incluso después de una semana de este trágico evento, aún estamos monitoreando condiciones adversas que son altamente inestables. El Distrito Escolar de Briggs entiende claramente los factores que se crean para las familias cuando la escuela está cerrada, pero la decisión se tomó como la única opción en el mejor interés de los estudiantes y el personal de BESD. Algunos de los factores que llevaron a esta decisión fueron la mala calidad del aire exterior, las condiciones inestables y las predicciones meteorológicas. No tomamos estas decisiones a la ligera. Nuestro objetivo es que la escuela vuelva a abrir en enero y esperamos ver a todos nuestros estudiantes y familias.
