A Message from Shannon Brunink, Head of School - December 8, 2023

Dear Black River Community, 

Please click here to read the letter from our Board President, Kimberley Mitchell, and Head of School, Shannon Brunink. The letter celebrates our great school and also asks for your support.

You can find a link to support the donation request here.

Thank you so much for your care of our great school!

December 8, 2023

Early today a student on campus was not feeling well and needed some medical support.  AMR/medical support responded and was able to assist and the student quickly received the necessary care.

Out of respect for the privacy of the student involved, we asked teachers to keep students in classrooms. We are thankful for everyone's patience and help during that time.

Exam Week Survival Kit

The BRPO is excited to launch its first-ever Exam Week Survival Kit available for students in 6th - 12th grades.
