Archived Fourth Grade Flyer

For 4th grade Students & Parents of Bill Burden Elementary

October 17-21, 2016

Half Way through the 2nd six weeks!

It's hard to believe we are half way through! Keep encouraging your students to work hard and show effort! Effort makes the biggest difference in their education!

PROGRESS REPORTS WILL BE AVAILABLE THROUGH SKYWARD ON OCTOBER 20th.

TRANSPORTATION REMINDER

Please remember that we do not accept NOTES for transportation changes. If you need to make a change to the way your child goes home at the end of the day, please call our front office and speak to/leave a voicemail with our office staff. They will communicate the change with your child's teacher. You are encouraged to always let your child's teacher know of changes, but as of now, official changes are only made THROUGH A PHONE CALL TO THE OFFICE. Beginning November 7th, there will be a button to click on the Burden website that will allow parents to email transportation changes. More information about this system will be going home soon.

Thank You!

***** IMPORTANT INFORMATION****

Due to technical issues within our Skyward program, we will NOT be able to implement the new transportation system safely at this time.


  • All changes to afternoon transportation will be by phone calls to the front office. This must happen before 2 p.m.

  • No texts, emails, or written notes will be accepted.

  • Limit transportation changes.

  • Utilize our voice mail system and leave a detailed message regarding the change. We MUST have: student name, teacher name, destination physical address, and a return phone number for any questions.

  • The office will not return calls to verify we got the voice mail.


Thanks in advance for your help in providing safe and effective transportation for your child.

Become a Preferred Panther!

In order to better protect everyone at our campus, all visitors are required to show a valid, government-issued I.D. when visiting our campus. In order to expedite your entry into our campus during large crowd events, we recommend that you obtain a Panther Pass. You will be able to:


  • Pre-Register to attend select school events ahead of time
  • Pre-Register OTHER family members who wish to attend, as long as the family members have completed the 1-2-3 steps of obtaining a Panther Pass at our campus
  • Avoid the long visitor lines waiting to be scanned into Raptor and have your own badge waiting for you at the front office for large events



OBTAINING YOUR PREFERRED PANTHER STATUS IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3 !


  1. Bring a valid photo I.D. into our campus
  2. Your information will be entered into our Raptor system
  3. Obtain your Visitor Badge and enjoy your visit with us!



Now you have Panther Pass status in our Raptor System at our campus.

Next time you visit our campus, you will no longer need to bring a photo I.D. with you!


We look forward to seeing you soon!
