April Newsletter


Ahoy from the Burnet STREAM Team!

Spring has sprung and we are more thankful than ever for some sunshine and warm weather! This month marks the beginning of our STAAR testing season, which begins Tuesday, April 6 with the 4th grade writing test. Please check back for updates regarding our testing schedule for 3rd and 4th grades throughout the months of April & May.

Please continue to help us in the following ways:

- Wear your mask every day! GISD will continue to require that students wear masks through the end of the school year. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping all of our Burnet family safe!

- Bring your district-issued Chromebooks with you to school each day

- Parents, please take note of our dismissal procedures below-- we are working on making this process faster and we appreciate your continued cooperation!

Please stay tuned for important dates and information, as this newsletter will be updated throughout the month to help you stay informed.
