• Burruss Blast!



    Welcome, March!

    Can you sing with me: Rain, rain, go away...come again another day! Goodness, we have had so much rain! Thank you for sending kids to school in jackets with rain gear. We are doing our best with indoor recess, but everyone is ready to get back outside! It would be a good idea to send a backup set of clothes for students to have in case they get muddy once we are able to get outside.

    This newsletter is full of important information and reminders. I try not to send too many emails to families, so when I do send newsletters and notes, they are usually packed full! Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

    Thank you for your support of our school. Burruss is better because you are here!

    Kind regards,

    Dr. Jillian Johnson

    Got Boxes?

    In STEM, our first graders are creating animal rehabilitation centers for their injured animals and we are in desperate need of old shoe boxes or just plain boxes. If you have any at home or school that you wouldn’t mind donating to me please send them our way!

     Bingo Night


    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.
