    brought a note

    Hi

    Next morning, as the school assembled, Baxter brought a
    note: ‘Just to let you know that Ethel is safe and sound with
    Miss Bedfellow. Heard five minutes ago.’

    Could "brought a note" mean that he said that to her instead of giving her a piece of paper with the news?

    No. It's pretty clear with the quotation marks that it's talking about an actual written-down note.
