• Burruss Blast!



    Good evening, Burruss families!


    I hope you all are having a wonderful month of November. Next week is Thanksgiving Break, and all Marietta City Schools will be closed 11/25-11/29. We hope you have a lovely holiday with family and friends. We are truly thankful for YOU and your children. Burruss is better because you are here!

    As we progress through this cold and flu season, please remember to send in excuse notes within three days of a child's absence. For students who miss more than three consecutive days, please send in a note from a doctor's office.

    Also, we have had many students who need a change of clothes or underwear during the day. Please consider sending a spare pair in your child's backpack in a plastic bag labeled with his/her name. Students who get into mud, water, or have spills and accidents often need to change here at school, and our supplies are running low.

    Our November assembly is Friday at 8:45. We will honor our students of the month along with a few other student recognitions. Our Kindergarten classes will also perform some Thanksgiving songs.

    As always, please reach out if I can be of any assistance to you and your family.

    Kind regards,

    Dr. Jillian Johnson

    School Climate Survey for Parents!



    All parents are asked to complete the school climate survey for A.L. Burruss. These ratings, combined with staff ratings, inform our CCRPI Climate Star Rating. Burruss celebrated a 5-star rating in 2018-19!



    We are enjoying a new dismissal process this year that is safer and more organized than ever before! If you have a dismissal change, please communicate that change with your child's teacher as well as with the front office staff. Teachers will not accept transportation changes during the school day. All midday changes must be made through the front office before 2:30pm.

    If your child does not live within walking distance to the school, please plan to pick up your child in the carpool line. We do require you to show your child's QR code, which can be given by the front office and shown either on paper or on your cell phone. Our carpool line is very efficient and we finish the process by 3:25 on most days.

    Transportation changes that ask for your child to be a walker toward Lee's Crossing or toward Kimberly Way may not be granted if you do not live in those communities. Student safety is our top priority.
