Burke Bulldog Weekly Update
Important information and updates for learning
Message from Principal Rasmussen
Dear Burke High Families,
We look forward to seeing our families on August 2nd and August 3rd for our Early Check-In days. We have sent packets home to our students and you should have received materials to return at our check-in days. If you did not receive a packet, please continue to come to the check-in days at your designated times. Information is included within this update.
Our district continues to monitor information for the health and safety of all of our students and has communicated to families protocols for opening school.
If you have questions about the opening of school, feel free to contact our school at 531-299-2580.
See you soon! Go Bulldogs!
We are providing updated information to this link weekly to help keep our students and families informed of information related to Burke High School and student learning for the 2021-2022 school year.
Online School Picture Payment Options for August 2 or August 3
Just type in Burke High School and the Password: Bulldogs to have access to the different picture packages available.
This is an option and not required. Families will still be able to bring the Scholastic Order Form that was sent home with materials to the check-in days and pay by check. School picture packages will be available for purchase and all students will get a school identification photo (free).
What to wear to photo day:
-Solid colors do photograph best.
-Choose an outfit that will compliment the background you have chosen. We have over 10 options online to choose from!
-We do our best to get out as much glass glare out as possible! If you have a pair without lenses, bring those for photos to get the best results!
-Avoid busy patterns and graphics on clothing.
-Fall photos are cropped to a Standard Head and Shoulders Headshot.

What Do Students Need to Do?
Metro is asking that high school students show a valid school-issued ID when boarding. For those that do not have a school-issued ID, Metro will provide one. Elementary and middle school students can simply inform drivers that they are students. The program will run from May 10, 2021 through June 1, 2022 and is being funded by a local philanthropic grant.
Families who have specific questions can find more information at ometro.com/k-12 or can call Metro’s Customer Service line at 402.341.0800, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
