Important School Announcements
Tuesday, September 11, 2018 10:10 AM

Family Calendar Handbook: Family Calendar Handbooks will be ready and sent home with students in mid-September. Until then, please refer to our website for dates and times of school events.
 
Breakfast: School breakfast is available and free of charge on a daily basis for any student who would like it. At 8:55 am students are released from the atrium to go to breakfast and/or their classrooms. If a student is having breakfast they go to the cafeteria to pick up the food and then take it to their classrooms to eat.
 
Coffee with the Principal: Beginning in October, Principal Bartl will be hosting "Coffee with the Principal" on the second Friday of each month from 9:30 to 10:30 am. This will be an opportunity to connect with Ms. Bartl and others in the community throughout the year.
 
Community Visioning Event: Thank you to all who came out to be a part of this conversation on June 14 and August 16! We will be holding one final input gathering event on Thursday, October 11 from 6 to 8 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others in our community and provide input into what we envision for our school community over the next 3 to 5 years. If you are unable to attend the event in person and would like to provide input, please share your ideas using this link.
 
School Spirit Fridays: Celebrate your Burroughs Spirit every Friday. Encourage your children to wear our Burroughs Colors (navy and yellow) or any 'Burroughs Wear' they have. 
 
Arrival: For the safety of our students, unless they are enrolled in the Minneapolis Kids program, please do not drop them off at school until 8:55 am. Burroughs staff is typically in meetings from 8 to 8:55 am; therefore, we do not have the capacity to supervise children during that time.
 
Dismissal: This is an extremely busy time of day.  Please communicate to the teacher or office in person or in writing well in advance of dismissal time if your child will be going home in an alternative way, e.g., instead of taking the bus home, they will be picked up or have permission to walk to their destination, etc. 
 
Traffic & Safety: Please help keep our students safe by following our Traffic & Safety procedures during pick-up and drop-off times. Remember that the traffic circle is only to be used for kindergarten through 2nd grades. Please view more arrival and dismissal procedures on the Burroughs website.
