Daily In-Person Checklist

  1. Complete AT HOME self screening before getting on the bus or coming to school.
  2. Face coverings for all bus riders, and students in grades 1st-5th. Face coverings are strongly encouraged for PreK and Kinder. Remember wearing a face mask reduces your child's chance of having to quarantine for close contact.
  3. Bring your backpack including water bottle, snack, and lunchbox (if bringing lunch).

General Reminders

  1. Visits to the school are by appointment. We will attempt to address situations by phone or Google Meet. In-person appointments can be scheduled if the situation requires. When visiting campus, please be prepared to show a valid photo ID.

  2. If you do visit the school, face coverings are required for all adults at all times. This includes the office foyer area.

  3. Due to COVID-19, we will not have any on campus volunteers at this time.

  4. We are not accepting deliveries including forgotten lunches (hot meal will be provided by the cafeteria), birthday treats, and food orders.

  5. If you need to make an occasional change to your child's transportation home, please use the Bertram Transportation Change email: ber-transportation@burnetcisd.net . Transportation changes must be emailed in no later than 1:30pm. Teachers will not be able to accept transportation changes.
