APRIL 2019                                                        Brashear, Missouri


Tuesday, April 2, 2019 is Election Day. This year we had two candidates file for the two available positions on the school board. Those who filed include incumbents Jim Reeves and Duayne Housman.


The district will not hold an election since the number of candidates who filed for the Board is equal to the number of positions available.



We will be conducting our annual Kindergarten registration on Friday, April 26th, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the elementary school. All district children who will be 5 years old prior to August 1, 2019 are eligible to register for Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. Please bring your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of a vision test from an optometrist or physician with you on that day.


Please contact the school at 323-5272 to schedule your appointment.
