Report card day is a Brookhaven School District school holiday

Superintendent Ray Carlock had good news and bad news for students during a recent Brookhaven School Board meeting.

Report cards will be available for pickup at all schools Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

And that’s a school holiday so they’ll have the day off.

“Parents are encouraged to come pick up their child’s report cards at their respective schools,” Carlock said.

Each school will close from 2-3 p.m. for lunch.
