Important School Announcements
Tuesday, October 8, 2019 10:10 AM

School Start Time: A reminder that school starts at 9:10 am. Students who are dropped off, walk, or bike to school can arrive as early at 8:55 am. 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 8:00-8:55 am, therefore we do not have the capacity to supervise children during that time. Students who arrive after 9:10 a.m. will have to sign in at the office and be considered tardy. 
 
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, i.e. 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 review alternate safe drop-off locations for older students as well as additional arrival and dismissal procedures on the Burroughs website. Additionally, if you are using the Lynnhurst Park parking lot, please use this for drop off purposes only, not to park and walk your children to school.  Lynnhurst needs the parking spaces.

Student Lunch Accounts: No child will ever be denied a lunch in MPS. However, if they are purchasing any item ala carte, such as milk, a second entree, or dessert, they have to have money in their lunch account or pay with cash. Please check your child's account by going to schoolcafe.com to manage balances, apply for educational benefits, and see menus and nutritional information.
