Good Morning, Burbank Families!
I hope this message finds you enjoying this snow day with your family! It has been a wonderful week learning and growing at Burbank School! Students and staff are so happy to be back together after winter break and despite the uncertainty that COVID continues to provide for us, we continue to come together as a school community with positivity and care for one another.
IMPORTANT: As mentioned in yesterday's communication, please send students to school with pool tests on Monday, January 10, 2022 due to today's snow day.
In this week's family news you will find:
44 families completed the family input survey originally sent out before vacation and noted an interest in virtual family “coffee” hours with the principal that will occur before, during, or after the school day. The goal of these sessions is to provide families time to provide informal time to ask questions and share their thoughts about Burbank School. In an effort to connect with most families possible in my first month here, I have scheduled three sessions for January:
The virtual meeting link for all three sessions is: meet.google.com/wrq-txts-bhv
Please click here to RSVP for the session and share any questions or topics that you’d like to discuss (if you know them ahead of time).
The Belmont Public Schools offers tutoring to students who are in quarantine or isolation due to COVID and not able to attend school. Below are the details about tutoring:
School vacations are scheduled well in advance each year. In fact, notice is given during the previous school year. Taking children out of school when school is in session sends a negative message to the child about the importance of being in school. Teachers are not required to provide school work or make-up work for such circumstances.

For families of students in grades 3 and 4, just a reminder that they will participate in MCAS testing in Spring 2022. Please make a note of these dates on your calendar. More information will be provided as we get closer to the testing dates.
Please note: The target audience for this workshop is parents/guardians with students in Pre-K to Grade 2 as it will focus on skill development in these grade levels.
Important registration information for current BPS families:
You do not need to register a grade 1-12 existing Belmont Public Schools student again.
