Burbank Newsletter - January 15th

Dear Burbank Families,

Happy Friday!  I hope you are all looking forward to the long weekend.

Monday's holiday marks the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King's Jr.'s birthday, but were you aware that his actual date of birth is today, the 15th?  We mark this occasion to celebrate Dr. King's life and work, and his eloquent calls for non-violence, love, and service.  These universal values are alive and well in the Burbank community.  I am struck each day, even in these difficult times, of the generosity and caring displayed by the students, families, teachers, and staff at our school. In his 1963 book Strength To Love, Dr. King wrote:

 

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'

 

Our community can answer with honesty and pride, that we are taking care of each other.  In this time of great need for all, I encourage us all to continue to give of ourselves in this community and beyond.

With best wishes,

Mr. Okie

Long weekend/ February break

If you plan to travel over the long weekend or February Vacation, please be sure to allow enough time for COVID-19 testing and results prior to your child’s in-person return to school. This applies to New Hampshire and Maine—any out of state travel (except Hawaii).

Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

If you already know that you are going to travel, please complete this form for my records. The form helps me to keep track of absences, travel and testing—it does not mean that your child is absent.

Feel free to contact me if you would like a list of free testing sites.
