A service for Mr. Bruce Brann will be held on Thursday, March 14 at 3:00 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Freeport. Because Mr. Brann worked at both Harrison Middle School and Yarmouth High School, and because students currently in grades 8-12 knew Mr. Brann as their principal, we will be dismissing HMS and YHS at 1:45 p.m. on March 14. This will allow ample time for staff and interested families to wrap up their school day and travel to Freeport for the service without having to rush. We will run afternoon bus routes one hour earlier for the High School and Middle School students, so parents should expect their children home one hour earlier than the normal time next Thursday.
We will not be dismissing Yarmouth Elementary School or Rowe School early on that date. We will provide coverage for staff who wish to attend the service, and families who had a close tie to Mr. Brann are certainly welcome to dismiss their children as they see fit. To provide as much normalcy as possible for busy family schedules, we will run a regular school day for students in Kindergarten through Grade 4, with bus runs occurring at the regular times for those students.
