  • At 1:30 pm, this email box is checked for a final time and all changes will be made.
  • After 1:30 pm, we print the transportation lists for teachers and dismissal staff.
  • No changes will be accepted after this time.
  • If you have an emergency, you may call and speak to Mrs. Harris about the situation and we will work together to support your student.
  • Voicemails, notes, text messages, phone calls, and emails to any other email address are not acceptable changes of transportation and will not be processed.
  • We do not accept transportation changes from students. Parents and guardians must communicate any changes by using the ber-transportation@burnetcisd.net email address.

Birthday Treats & Forgotten Lunches

Birthday celebrations are reserved for the last 15 minutes of the day. Please communicate with your child's teacher if you intend to send in treats. They will be able to let you know the specific time.
