About Us

  • Our elementary school, located in the Interior of Alaska near the town of North Pole, was built in 1987 and has an enrollment of about 550 preschool through fifth grade students with 75 full-time and part-time staff members. We are named after the outstanding Alaska Native educator Emily "Ticasuk" Ivanoff Brown, who did much to preserve traditional Alaska Native languages and culture in our state. Emily's Alaska Native name, Ticasuk, means:

    "Where the four winds gather their treasures from all parts of the world . . . the greatest of which is knowledge."



               Picking Up and Dropping off Your Children




    Ticasuk Brown Elementary School would like to share our drop off and pick up procedures with you. The safety of all our students is of great importance and we would like to thank you in advance for your patience and support in following our procedures.



    Below you will find a list of our school procedures:



    • The speed limit is 3 miles per hour on school property. Please observe this limit for the safety of our students.
    • Please remain in your vehicle at all times when coming through the drop-off and pick-up lane.
    • Please follow the directions of the crossing guards.

    The staff members who volunteer as crossing guards are doing their best to make sure our start-up and dismissal times are safe for all students.


    • Stay in one lane and pull forward as far as you safely can before stopping to drop off your children along the curb. This will minimize traffic congestion and keep flow of traffic moving.


    • IF YOU NEED TO LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE, PLEASE PARK IN THE PARKING LOT ACROSS FROM THE DROP OFF AND PICK UP LANE. We have two crossing guards who will assist children safely at two designated crosswalks that will be marked with orange posts.

                  Please teach and model safe crossing to your children at the crosswalk.



    Again, we appreciate your support and cooperation during these high traffic times. We all have the same goal: To keep your children safe. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop in and speak with me. Thank you!


    Thank you for your cooperation


    Beverly Kokrine, Principal
