Woodbrook PTO Board Open Positions

This year has been a challenge for all of us, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter and brighter. Let’s join together and plan for a great 2021/2022 school year filled with PTO sponsored events like movie nights, fun fairs, and school dances (if it is safe to do so). Please consider filling one of these available positions. All Woodbrook parents are encouraged, and eligible, to take a board member position on the PTO. We can do this and we need your help! Please email [email protected] with any interest or for more detailed descriptions.  We will vote on board positions at the last meeting of the year, May 11, 2021. Details on board positions are in the pictures below.

Got Masks?

The PTO still has a small supply of the new Woodbrook masks available for purchase. Each mask is $8 and will be delivered to your home once payment is received. These masks are adult sized with bendable nose pieces and adjustable ear straps. Masks are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If interested, please email: [email protected] and as long as masks are available we’ll reply with payment details!

Albemarle County School Calendar Survey

2020-2021 School Calendar Changes:

ACPS would love to hear your voice regarding the potential 2020-2021 School Calendar. Please be sure to review the following information and answer the quick survey from the public schools.
Many instructional staff have offered feedback that extra time for planning and preparation would be beneficial. This has resulted in two additional calendar drafts for the upcoming school year. One moves the start date of the new school year to Wednesday, September 2; the other would have school begin after Labor Day on Tuesday, September 8. In both cases, the school year would close on Friday, June 18. The options preserve traditional schedule breaks.
Please take a moment to review the options displayed in the links below and provide your feedback in the survey. The survey results will be shared with the School Board on or before June 26th.
September 2nd Start
