Materials Pick Up Day 

We will be having another materials distribution day on Friday, November 13. This one will look a little different, due to the changing weather. We will use the circle as well as James Avenue to distribute materials. Please come to your pick-up location at the time designated below. Materials on James Avenue will be distributed from the gym doors. For those of you coming to James Avenue, please pull up to the gym doors. Whether coming to the circle or James Avenue, please remember to put a sign in your window with your child's name and the homeroom teacher's name. When you pull up, your child's teacher will run the materials out to your car. Please do not come into the building.

Technology Resources and Support

If you have questions or need support with student devices please visit the technology resources and support page.



During Distance Learning the top priority is that students are engaged in learning every day. As such, the definition of an absence is when a student, or parent/guardian for elementary students, does not have contact with the teacher on an instructional day. If your child will be absent, please notify the school by calling the attendance line at 612-668-3288


The health and safety of our students and staff is a priority. Please review attendance guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health relating to COVID-19. You may also review additional resources and a helpful decision tree.


School Spirit Fridays

Let's celebrate our Burroughs spirit every Friday. Encourage your children to wear any "Burroughs Wear" or our colors (navy, blue, and yellow) each Friday.
