Volunteer at Brinker:
If you plan to volunteer at any point during the school year, whether it is in the classroom or at a school event, all volunteers must fill out a PISD volunteer clearance application. The application is valid for one school year (it has to be renewed each year). The application can take up to 2 weeks to be approved so save time and fill it out today! You can find the volunteer application HERE. You can also fill out our Volunteer Interest form HERE. This form does not commit you to volunteer, but it does let us know what types of volunteer activities you might be interested in.

School Times & Drop Off/Pick Up Information:
School starts at 7:40am. It is good practice to have your student at school by 7:30 so they have plenty of time to get unpacked and ready to start their day before the bell rings. The school day ends at 2:45pm. Students are released according to their grade and mode of transportation. Click HERE to see our STUDENT PICK UP map.
