Burbank Bulletin

April 5, 2021


Dear Luther Burbank Families,

We are off to a great start! It was great to welcome all of our students as they entered the building. Smiling eyes and warm greetings to friends and teachers filled the hallways. It's been a long time coming, and we couldn't be more grateful. This week, photos of our students' full return this morning take center stage in our Burbank Bulletin. Best students EVER! Best community EVER! #theLBMSway

Thank you, again, for your continued support,


Laura Friend
