LINK Acceptable Use Policy for Students

This Code of Behavior and Respect is a combined effort by members of the Burbank School community.  The student behavior code is based on the need to create and maintain a positive and safe climate of behavior. We also want children to carry over from the home those positive attitudes about good behavior that they have learned.

BURBANK SCHOOL SONG, FLAG, MASCOT

We have a School song, written by two students (see song here). The School flag which hangs in the lower foyer was designed by students.  The Beaver is the school mascot, selected by Student votes.
