Parent Teacher Conferences - Coming Soon!

Parent Teacher Conferences are an optimal way for parents and teachers to join together to discuss student’s strengths and areas for further growth. This fall, our conferences will be offered virtually. Last year, we received positive feedback from families about the virtual format. Families shared that the virtual format made it easier for both parents to attend, eliminated the need for childcare at home, and allowed for working parents to join a conference from their workspace. Parents who wish to schedule an in person conference will be able to do so by contacting the office directly.

It may be a helpful reminder that middle school conferences are not booked with homeroom teachers. Conferences should be booked with your child’s academic teachers, related arts teachers, and, if applicable, related service providers.

Conferences will be held on the afternoon and evening of November 7th and the full day of November 8th. Conferences will be scheduled through our online appointment booking system, Pick-A-Time. A link to Pick-A-Time will be provided on our Luther Burbank website. Fall conference Pick-A-Time scheduling will open on October 20 at 7:00 PM.

Reporting a Student Absent or Tardy

Please be reminded that we request that you notify the school if your child is going to be late or absent. You can do so easily by emailing LBMSattendance@nrsd.net. Please feel free to call Nurse Ana at 978-365-5629 if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Purple Pinkie Day

Join us this Friday, October 21, as we help promote understanding and support of Rotary International’s effort to eliminate the disease of polio for good. Why is it called Purple Pinkie? When a child is vaccinated for polio, he/she has a purple stamp placed on their little finger. Building on this symbolism, our students will learn about the efforts to raise funds for oral vaccine in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria the three countries where polio still remains and become part of the solution. Since one dollar is the estimated cost to immunize a child from polio, students are encouraged to bring in a dollar or more to help with the cause. Best of all, the donations will be matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation so every donation will go even farther.

After School Activities are Up and Running!

Our after school activities are off to a great start! For a complete list of all that are offered please refer to our last Burbank Bulletin, which can be found here, this information can also be found on the Activities Tab on our school website.
