• Burruss Blast!



    Good evening, Burruss families!

    October is off to such a great start! We are working so hard every day. Teachers are conscientious of monitoring student progress and mastery of standards as they plan instruction. Our focus is on engaging everyday instruction that is based on the state standards, which build on each other from year to year. Our staff is doing a beautiful job of having vertical conversations with other grade levels to best prepare students for the next year. I am so proud of the work we are doing!

    This Friday night, October 18, is the Elementary Spirit Night at the Marietta High School football game. Burruss students get in free if they are wearing a Burruss shirt! Before the game starts, all schools will recognize their Teachers of the Year, and as I'm sure you know, our TOTY won the overall Teacher of the Year for the entire district! We are having a blast celebrating her this year. Thank you, Mrs. Esquijarosa, for serving our students, staff, and families so well!

    We have so many exciting things ahead of us this year. I can't wait to watch your students grow and bloom! Thank you for your support and for believing in Burruss. We are better because you are here!

    Please reach out to me anytime with questions or concerns!

    Kind regards,

    Dr. Jillian Johnson

    Red Ribbon Week 2019


    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.
