    Good Evening BHS,
     
    This is Dr. Crowther with announcements for the week of August 3, 2020.
     
    Seniors, please note that despite the fact that we are opening the school year in "distance learning," high school students are required to be enrolled in six classes during the fall semester of their senior year in accordance with BUSD Board of Education policy.
     
    There is nothing that your counselor or the site can do to circumvent this. We can, however, help you determine a schedule of six classes that work for you. Please review your current course requests, and, reach out to your counselor if you see less than six classes, or, if you see a "see counselor" line on your schedule.
     
    Attention 9th graders, this week marks the start of your textbook pick-up days. We apologize that a series of asset letters went home to rising 9th graders last week and included a column indicating "book costs." This is not a cost to students; texts are free to students during their K-12 schooling. This column is auto-generated and is simply the replacement cost of a lost book. Students should not worry this as they prepare for textbook pick-up.
      
    9th grade books will be distributed August 3 and 4 with a make up day on August 5. 
     
    Please arrive at your designated time slot, bring the letter that was mailed home and/or a form of ID. If you did not receive a letter, you are welcome to check if your books are ready for pick up, however, you may need to return on the Make-Up day if they are not. 
     
    Please remember to wear a mask and keep physical distance from others. 
    You may visit the Burbank High School website or our facebook page for the pick up schedule or continue to listen to this message. 
     
    Assignments are as follows:

    Monday, August 3rd

    9:00am – 10:00am - A - C

    10:00am – 11:00am – D - G

    Good evening Burbank High School Families,

    This is. Dr. Crowther with announcements for the week of Monday, July 27, 2020. As counselors return to work this week we will continue placing students in appropriate courses for the 2020-2021 school year, which as you know will open in a distance learning virtual format this year.

    Due to a swell of new enrollees the last two weeks, we are pushing the release of students’ courses in AERIES for the fall semester from Wednesday, July 29 to Friday, July 31. In the meantime, we want to be certain that all families have completed the Parent Data Confirmation process emailed to them last week. More information can be found in the Student Service section of the BUSD website, www.burbankusd.org. Additionally, we ask that families review the BHS website for details on our Virtual Registration process starting August 3, 2020.

    https://www.burbankusd.org/site/Default.aspx?PageID=2812

    For rising 9th grade families and new BHS students there is a virtual parent meeting at 6:00 p.m. the evening of Wednesday, August 5. A Zoom invitation will be shared in next weekend’s Sunday Blast. Please join us as your schedules allow, meet the site leadership team, get updates on the distance learning model to start the fall and have your questions answered.

    Last Monday, the CIF Southern Section announced that they would postpone the start of the high school sports’ season for all sports to late December and early January. They also merged three seasons – fall, winter, spring – into two seasons. This will hopefully mean an action packed 2021. All athletes will be placed in athletic conditioning classes for the upcoming semester, and will work with their coaches as guidelines are updated for workouts, practices and eventually a return to competition. Our athletic office will update programs and athletes as the Pacific League and Southern Section release new information.

    Please also note that we are aware that this condensed sports calendar potentially impacts multi-sport athletes. We strongly support students who give themselves to more than one program on behalf of the school. Our expectation is that no coach will pressure a student-athlete into specializing and focusing on one sport, but will instead, encourage the well-rounded high school experience. Our Athletic Directors will work with coaches on collaborating together in support of these students. We are all in this together and we will make it work.

    We also anticipate all performing arts to offer classes to students in the fall. The directors of these programs will be discussing their plan for the fall over the first few weeks of school.

    A reminder not all students get their first elective choice. This is especially true of underclassmen. Current electives with space include Digital Photo, Digital Media, Drama I, Art I, Journalism and Computer Programming. Keep these courses in mind as counselors finalize student schedules starting this week. Additionally there remains space in the vocal music program for students who want to audition for the program. See the program’s website for additional information.

    This concludes announcements for the week ahead. Have a wonderful Sunday evening, stay safe and remember that we are respectful, responsible and compassionate because #WeAreBurbank.

    Dr. Crowther

    Good Evening Burbank Bulldogs,

    This is Dr. Crowther with announcements for the week ahead.

    As you no doubt have heard, Burbank Unified School District announced last Monday what we will open the 2020-2021 school year with distance learning. We join most of the State in preparing for this reality. While some details are still being finalized, I assure you that the model being crafted through committees and negotiations will be drastically improved from the efforts last spring. In the weeks ahead, we will be giving updates to households. Please note the following opportunities:

    VIRTUAL Q/A:

    Tomorrow, July 20, 2020 I will host my first “Coffee with Crowther” through a series of Zoom sessions. I will do my best to answer questions that parents have, please come as your schedules allow. Please note that each session has a cap of 100 Zoom guests.

    Incoming 9th Grade Parents: 

    8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m.

    Meeting ID: 882 9864 5825

    Passcode: 2W1xhM

    REGISTRATION UPDATE:

    Due to COVID-19, we will be holding our annual orientation and registration virtually this year. Counselors report back to work on July 27, and there will be several methods that students can contact their counselor regarding their schedule for next year.

    General Information:

    * We ask that all families complete the Parent Data Confirmation (PDC) prior to virtual registration. Information will be sent to families from the District and school regarding how to complete the PDC process, which will begin on July 20t.

    * On July 29, all students will have access to view their course requests via their AERIES portal account. Course requests are the classes that were chosen and do not include teacher names or specific class periods during the school day.

    * Students should review these course requests carefully and should then contact their counselor if they see an issue. Counselors will be working remotely most days; we will be communicating alternative ways to reach counselors other than their phone extensions. This includes opportunities for brief Zoom sessions beginning August 3. More information will be distributed shared on our website starting July 27, 2020.

    *A 9th grade presentation that would typically be presented at a “9th Grade Parent Night” will instead be released on our website on August 5.

    This concludes announcements for the week ahead. Remember to be responsible, respectful and compassionate Bulldogs by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask whenever out in public and doing what we can to increase the likelihood we will be able to open our physical campus sooner rather than later. Thank you.

    Respectfully,

     Dr. C.

    Good Evening Bulldogs,

    This is Dr. Crowther, proud Burbank High School Principal, with announcements for the week of July 6, 2020. After taking most of the month of June off, I’m returning to the weekly Sunday call as a communication tool to our BHS families.

    Our District has been working hard on return to school scenarios for 2020-2021. Please review the District website for the latest information. As the Superintendent’s message from last week indicated, the District plans to offer both an online only and a hybrid model of both live and online classes for the Fall. Expect a questionnaire to be sent to your household sometime this week regarding your preferred track for your student. It will be essential that you complete this form ASAP so that we place your student properly.

    In addition to two models, the live session school day breaks students down into two cohorts featuring morning and afternoon sessions. Scheduling siblings at multiple BUSD schools on the same track schedule for child care purposes is a primary consideration when scheduling students. Again, please look for the District questionnaire and complete it as soon as possible. Thank you.

    I know that there are so many questions yet to be answered about the 2020-2021 school year. I have them too, both as a parent and educator. How will we meet social emotional needs of students returning to school for the first time in months? How will be clean and sanitize the physical campus? How will be promote social and physical distance once on campus? What about high school sports and activities?

    Please note, we will continue to pass information on as decisions are made. These questions have multiple layers.  In addition to negotiating all of these matters with unions, the District takes cues from larger entities such as the Los Angeles County Office of Education, the Public Health Office, the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section and the Pacific League. Some recommendations and guidelines are fluid and change. At Burbank HS, we commit to sharing the most accurate and current information as soon as we have it.

    I will be hosting both an AM and PM virtual Zoom meeting on July 21, 2020 with updates to many of the questions above. I will also pass along details as I learn them through these calls, email blasts and my Twitter account. Feel free to follow me, Dr. C. @BHSBUSD.

    You should also visit our school website frequently, www.burbankhighschool.com.

    Some updates for the week ahead: 

    YEARBOOKS:

    We finally received the 2019-2020 yearbooks! We will begin distribution this week, distributing to the Senior Class of 2020 this Tuesday-Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tuesday last names A-G, Wednesday H-O and Thursday P-Z. For fastest assistance, Seniors should bring their receipt. This distribution effort will take place out of the parking garage on the corner of Third and Delaware.

    BOOK RETURN:

    If you previously missed make-up days for book returns, you can still return books on Mondays and Tuesdays between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

    Come to the library’s exterior entrance on Harvard St., where there will be a book cart to leave your books. Make sure you include your letter or put a post it on the books with your name and ID number. The cart is checked throughout the day and books are brought in as they are dropped off. For your peace of mind, it is suggested that you take a photo of the books on the cart before you leave.

    If there is no cart when you come by, do not leave books. 

    This concludes announcements for the week ahead.

    Best,

    Dr. Crowther

    Thank you for your patience today as our team did what they could in the face of the heat, and, a larger than expected turnout for diploma pick-up. I apologize for the long wait, and, thank you for bearing with us.

    A special shout out to the School Resource Officers Dustin Rodriguez and Laura Vargas for traffic control and to Ms. Rima, Ms. Dawoodian, Coach B., Ms. Martinez, Ms. Hoy, Ms. Rolat, and Assistant Principals Brian James and Narineh Barzegar for braving the crowd and weather and distributing most of our diplomas to our Class of 2020!

    Please note, we are short staffed the rest of this week. The next window to pick-up diplomas is next Tuesday (6/16)-Thursday (6/18) between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Registrar Window. Please remember to bring a photo ID.

    Also, we have received a lot of inquiries about the yearbook. At this time, we still expect them the middle of this month. We will make arrangements for pick-up as soon as we have received them from our vendor. Thank you.

    Dr. C.

    Good Evening Bulldogs,

    This is Dr. Crowther with this evening's update.

    A thank you to those households who took the time to participate in the “Last Lap Around BHS” earlier today either by participating in the book drop, decorating the perimeter of campus, or both. A special thank you to faculty and staff who were there lending a hand and showering our Seniors with love.

    A reminder, make-up book return dates for Seniors are 5/26 and 5/27 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This must be done before a diploma is issued.

    Please note that details on locker clean out and underclassmen book return will be on our website below “Senior Week” information before the holiday weekend.

    Speaking of Seniors, we are less than 24 hours from making history, the school's first ever virtual graduation. We've poured everything into this effort over the last month, and we believe you will be happy with the ceremony.

    HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTED VIEWING DETAILS & TIPS TO MAKE THE NIGHT MEMORABLE:

    • Tomorrow, we will release several ways folks can view our virtual graduation. Our preferred method for households to view the ceremony is through the BHS TV YouTube Channel This link will be available by 5:30 p.m., and the link will go live at 6:00 p.m. It will post on our school website, www.burbankhighschool.com.
    • The BHS TV YouTube Channel will be set on the same “premiere” setting as our awards shows were earlier this week. This means that all viewers will watch together in real time and be able to communicate in the chat window.
    • We will also provide BHS families a “Vimeo” link as a back-up for the BHS TV link, and as a resource to download the ceremony after it has debuted.
    • We did not forget about relatives who may be less comfortable with technology. Our graduation will also stream on the City of Burbank webpage as well as the local Public Access television channels – Channel 6 for Spectrum subscribers and Channel 99 for AT&T UVerse subscribers. It will run periodically through the summer months.
    • Speaking of relatives, we encourage you to share links to the ceremony with extended family and friends. Consider a Zoom Party to bring folks who are distant closer.
    • We ask you to share your viewing party photos and videos with us! On Facebook, be sure to tag us (Official Burbank High School) and on Instagram @burbankbulldog. You can also share with me, Dr. C., on Twitter @BHSBUSD. On all social media, spread the hashtag, #BHSGrads2020. This graduation program is going to be part of BHS history Capturing authentic moments from those “in attendance” will become a nice postscript for BHS in the future.
    • Our ceremony is timed to end around the 2 hour and 20-minute mark in honor of the amazing Class of 2020. At 8:20 p.m., we want the entire BHS community to step outside and make some noise for our graduates. We will be loud and proud for at least 20 seconds, let them hear you!
    • At 8:20 we will also turn the stadium lights on at the Kemp-Kallem Field for 20 minutes to honor our graduates.
    • The ceremony includes performances by Seniors in our band, choir, dance and drama programs. It also features a slide show from our yearbook staff, student speeches and surprise guests.
    • Finally, many Seniors submitted eight second “statement” videos. All are special in their own way and worth the time to see through until the end. Just before the credits Seniors get one more glimpse at many of our faculty and staff.

    Thank you BHS families for an amazing year. In case you’ve lost count, today was the last day of school.

    Peace & Love,

    Dr. Crowther

    It is our hope that by Thursday morning, the perimeter of campus will be decorated with inspirational posters for our graduates to see when they arrive the next day.
    On Thursday, May 21, we will be collecting books and other items that were loaned out to Seniors. A list was sent in the mail to all Seniors citing books and technology that have been checked out through our library. Please email Ms. Susan Hoy at SusanHoy@burbankusd.org if you do not receive that list by Friday (May 15).
    Students must arrive during their assigned time slot on Harvard St. near the library to return these items. Students will stay in cars.

(We will not be scanning books at this time, but will do so in the days that follow and before distributing diplomas the following week).

    Make it fun: Decorate your car and consider wearing your cap and gown. Finish the last lap around the school by continuing down Third Street. Wave “goodbye to BHS” as you pass the main gate. STUDENTS AND PARENTS MUST REMAIN IN THEIR CARS AT ALL TIMES.

    It is our hope that by Thursday morning, the perimeter of campus will be decorated with inspirational posters for our graduates to see when they arrive the next day.

    On Thursday, May 21, we will be collecting books and other items that were loaned out to Seniors. A list was sent in the mail to all Seniors citing books and technology that have been checked out through our library. Please email Ms. Susan Hoy at SusanHoy@burbankusd.org if you do not receive that list by Friday (May 15).

    You must arrive during your assigned time slot on Harvard St. near the library to return these items. You will stay in the car.

    What to bring: Your list, books (textbooks and library books), Chromebook with charger, Hotspot, fees owed to finance or library, other items that you have checked out from a teacher (calculator, camera, tools, …)

(We will not be scanning books at this time, but will do so in the days that follow and before distributing diplomas the following week).

    *Books returned during the make-up days will need to be delivered to the BHS Library entrance on Harvard. Students cannot receive their diploma until all items have been returned to the school and in-debts cleared.

    *We continue to work with our vendors on items such as yearbooks, cords and other keepsakes. We will communicate the plan for distributing those as soon as we know more.

    *The first round of yard signs went out Monday. More went out today. They will also be made available next week. Unfortunately, our car flags are on back order. ASB will lead out on distributing those as soon as we have them.

    Thank you for your time and attention to the above,

    Dr. Crowther

    Here are some initial details regarding the week of school, Monday, May 18-Thursday, May 21 before Graduation 2020 on Friday, May 22.

    This year's Nickelodeon-Burbank High School end of year is in a new format! We hope you can join us May 18, 2020 to kick-off Senior Week with the BHS Bash featuring the best animated shorts from our school’s Animation program led by Ms. Jonelle Picket.

    Tuesday, May 19 will feature the virtual BHS Faculty Excellence Awards and Wednesday, May 20 will feature our annual Senior Awards, which is virtual as well. Students receiving honors will receive word by the end of this current week of distance learning.

    Thursday, May 21 is the last day of instruction for all students and it is the “Last Lap Around the School” and “Book Drop” for the Senior Class. Seniors will be asked to return books to the library during a scheduled time. Returning all books and clearing all in-debts will allow them to pick-up their diploma the following week.

    Friday, May 22 we will release a link to the virtual graduation. Please note the new release time of 6:00 p.m. Our virtual graduation will be one of the best anywhere featuring traditional speeches, performances by members of the vocal music program and band, and will include some surprises as well as contributions from the dance program, play production, yearbook and your Senior Statements. This is a special keepsake for our Seniors and a time capsule of the unusual circumstances caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
    We will await Governor Newsom’s update at the end of this week, and monitor the situation this summer in the hopes of hosting a live graduation should it become safe to do so.

    Thank you teachers for continuing to take care of our Bulldogs during distance learning. Students, please continue to participate and engage to earn your credits for this semester.

    This concludes announcements for this week. Have a wonderful evening and week ahead.
