The Burruss Weekly: Summer Edition

A Note from Dr. Johnson

June 2022

Happy Summer!

I hope you and the kids are having a nice first few weeks of summer break. Things are so quiet here in the halls at ALB! We are working hard to wrap up this past year and plan for a wonderful school year 2022-23!

Supply Lists are ready for next school year! Click here to access--there is one page per grade level. Better yet--save time shopping and order a kit for your child that is already customized with everything they need for their grade level! Click here and then enter Acct #84274: Make sure you do not alter the shipping address, as these will ship directly to the school and be delivered to your child's classroom before Sneak-a-Peek!

Save the Date for Sneak-a-Peek! We will open our doors at 9am on August 2 and will close at 11:30am. We strongly encourage ALL families to come to campus that morning to get all of the information you need for the school year: bus routes, carpool QR code, classroom assignments, join PTA, purchase school spirit wear, sign up for enrichment, ASP, and BSP, and best of all, see your friends and classmates!

Our School Governance Team (SGT) has voted to update our school uniform policy, detailed below.

Tops: shirts, dresses, jumpers, sweatshirts, sweaters, hoodies

  • short or long-sleeve
  • PTA spirit wear
  • Burruss or Marietta Blue Devil
  • Solid Blue, White, Orange, or denim

Bottoms - shorts, skirts, skorts, pants

  • Blue
  • White
  • Khaki
  • Orange
  • Denim


  • Closed-toe only

SGT also voted to have Be Yourself Fridays, where uniforms are not required; however, all clothing must adhere to the district dress code, and students must still wear closed-toe shoes.

Perhaps you are asking WHY? on the closed-toe shoe policy. Let me help! In warm weather when students are wearing sandals, we see a significant increase of injuries to students' bodies, not just their toes and feet.

Look for an email from me later in the summer with details on your child's class placement. I plan to share this information with all returning families prior to Sneak-a-Peek.

I hope you have a safe, happy summer break!
