The Burruss Weekly

A Note from Dr. Johnson

September 15, 2021

Hello, Burruss families!

We can hardly believe that it is the seventh week of school--wow! Last week, we finished up with MAP testing, and the scores are available for families to view in Aspen and from the teachers. Most teachers have already sent a copy home, but if have not received a copy yet, feel free to ask your child's teacher. These scores, in combination with other assessments we give in class, inform our classroom instruction for your child. Our goal is to give every child what s/he needs to grow as readers and mathematicians.

There are several events coming up over the next few weeks. Save the dates!

Fall Break: September 27-October 1

Picture Day: October 7 (uniforms optional)

The Great Burruss Campout is October 8! Click here to sign up to help--we need volunteers to make this fun tradition a success!

Conference Week: October 18-22

We will dismiss each day of Conference Week at 1:15pm. Please arrange childcare. ASP will be available, but families must register in advance. Our goal is to meet with 100% of our families, either in person or via Zoom. More information will be coming from your child's teacher(s).

Child Illness Protocol

If your child is exhibiting any cold- or flu-like symptoms, please keep him/her at home. If your child has a fever of 100.5 or has vomited, s/he may not return to school until s/he has been symptom-free for at least 24 hours.

Please notify the principal ASAP if your child tests positive for COVID-19 or is identified as a close contact in your family. The sooner we have the information, the better plan we can provide here at school.

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

Kind regards,

Dr. Jillian Johnson
