A Note From Ms. Mathis and Dr. Funderburk

Happy fall! We wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your support and engagement last month. We had many opportunities through parent-teacher conferences and our camping adventure family night to talk with many of you, and it is clear we have amazing families! Continue supporting your students by engaging with classroom teachers, reading newsletters, and checking PowerSchool weekly. As always, if you ever need anything contact your child's teacher or the appropriate Burt staff member.

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.


  • 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
