What's New

Welcome to the John Brant Public School Website

John Brant Public School provides outstanding educational opportunities!

Our brand new facility opened its doors for the first time on September 5, 2016. Our school features state-of-the-art classrooms and common areas for students to engage in exciting 21st century learning opportunities.  Innovative programs that meet the needs of all our students are taught by our dedicated and professional staff who truly care about your child.

At John Brant we emphasize the importance of respect and kindness and remind each other to do our best and to do what’s right! We will use this web site to communicate important information and to reinforce the message we send home with students.

Keeping our School Safe and Healthy

If you have a child with a Prevalent Medical Condition (Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, and/or Epilepsy) we want to make sure we have a current Plan of Care to support your child.  

The Plan of Care form is a new document that replaces the Emergency Action Plan. All parents of children with Prevalent Medical Conditions are asked to fill out the new Plan of Care and submit to the school.

You can download the forms here dsbn.org/prevalent-medical-conditions.

For more information, please contact the school.
