Tuesday Time with the Principal
Each Tuesday beginning today Mrs. Bartl will be hosting an optional drop-in time for students from 12:30-1:00. This is an informal opportunity for students to connect with one another and Mrs. Bartl. We will do a variety of things during this time from playing games, to reading stories, to just chatting. I look forward to the opportunity to spend more time with students. Students can participate through google meets using the nickname: mrsbartl.

Technology Resources and Support

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.
