Burroughs Distance Learning School Wide Schedule 

The student day during Distance Learning begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm.  Detailed schedules will be communicated by homeroom teachers. Students will not be online for six hours. The school day will include a combination of screen based and non-screen based learning activities.   


Morning Piano Playing 

Mr. Hensley will continue the morning piano playing tradition. Tune into the Burroughs School Facebook page on school day mornings from 8:50-9:00 am to see Mr. Hensley. This is a great way for students to get energized for the day ahead. 


Technology Resources and Support

Please visit the technology resources and support page for questions about student devices.



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 Burroughs Site Council is looking to recruit two new members, one voting member and one alternate, for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. It's a great way to be involved in your child's school. Please visit this Site Council page to learn more about the Burroughs Site Council and how to become a member.
