A Note From Ms. Mathis and Dr. Funderburk

Welcome back to Burt everyone! We are excited to have the 22-23 school year underway! This year will be the best one yet for our Tiger families! We are excited to include everyone in our Learning Adventure this year. Please follow the Burt Facebook page to see school updates and updates about our learning adventures this year. #BurtLearningAdventure


Remember our School Wide Expectations are:

1. Take care of yourself

2. Take care of others

3. Take care of this place


Families, please remember if you have a concern or issue, it is always best practice to communicate with your child’s teacher first as they will have first-hand knowledge of your student. If you need to meet with an administrator, please call the front office or fill out a parent meeting form in the front office and an administrator will get back to you as soon as possible. On any given day, administrators have many scheduled meetings and other school operation duties and likely will not be able to meet with you on the spot. Please allow us the opportunity to schedule the meeting with you so you will have a designated time and have our full attention so we can meet the needs of your student.

Reminders from the Office

  • Early Dismissals- Please keep in mind that there are NO dismissals from the front office after 3:00 pm. Students must be here for at least 3 hours and 31 minutes in order to be counted as present for the day. In addition, students are learning from the time school starts until the very end of the day, so please try not to dismiss your student early every day.
  • School Messenger-If for some reason, you have blocked our school messenger, you will need to unblock the school number in case we need to reach you in the event of an emergency
  • Contact information-Please make sure you keep us up-to-date on all phone number and address changes, as well as emergency contact information. Changes in contact information for your child can be entered at parents.cmcss.net
  • Changes in transportation-If you are needing to change the way your student will be getting home on any given day, please send in a hand-written note. We cannot accept changes over the phone as it is difficult to fully verify your identity.
  • Photo IDs-A government-issued ID is required in order to dismiss your student early. Anyone who comes to pick your student up must be on the emergency card or we must receive a note of authorization from you. The same will apply in the car rider line in the event the person picking up does not have a car tag.

Attendance

  • Parent Notes (up to 5 days person school year)
  • Doctor/dentist/hospital notes
  • Required court appointments
  • Funeral Documentation

Any of these items and any questions you may have regarding attendance can be sent to our attendance clerk, cara.sigears@cmcss.net
