    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

    We'd like to encourage each household to make a poster for your graduate. On Wednesday, May 20, we ask that you hang your poster on the perimeter of the school. Remember to practice social distancing during this time. Stay in your car if you see others in the area and wait for your turn to hang your poster. Visitors should stay 10-12 feet apart at all times in the event you come across other people. Masks and gloves are required on public sidewalks near campus.

    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.

    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, …)

    Good Evening Bulldogs,

    This is Dr. Crowther with the Mother’s Day edition of announcements for the week ahead.

    This Wednesday, Burbank High School’s PTSA invites you to the last meeting of the year, a Zoom Meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. Join us at the link below.

    Please have your name featured on your display to help us take roll and admit BHS stakeholders as they arrive.

     

    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.

    Attention Seniors,Attention Seniors,


    We hope you caught this morning’s BHS-TV Weekly Edition. Please note the following:

    1) If you are a graduating Senior who has received a scholarship, we want to include you a part of the Senior Awards which will air the evening of Wednesday, May 20, 2020 in honor of the class of 2020! Please email Assistant Principal of Guidance and Counseling Ms. Janine Salanitro at janinesalanitro@burbankusd.org right away so she can include you in this year’s Senior Awards program. Thank you Bulldogs!

    2) Thank you to the 450 seniors who sent us a Senior Statement in what is shaping-up to be an epic virtual graduation ceremony. If you missed the initial deadline, here is one last chance. The link found on our website, form.jotform.com/bhsbulldogs/VC-videoandmessage, is re-opened for new submissions only until 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. We are especially interested in getting a submission from students who did not take a senior portrait this year, as we want your face in the program. Please note that only new student ID numbers and names will be able to submit in the system.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Crowther

    A great Sunday evening to all Bulldogs!

    This is Dr. Crowther welcoming you to May and to the week ahead as our students keep up with their distance learning to conclude this school year.

    We have been in communication with our yearbook supplier, Balfour, who has reopened and who will complete our 2020 order soon. We are exploring the possibility of mailing the 2020 yearbook right to you. More details to come this week through the BHS Yearbook Staff’s new IG account and through our ASB. Additionally, there is still the opportunity to purchase a yearbook, using the link on the school website, under the "Activities" tab to "Yearbook." The price is $110.00.

    Three great ways to find out answers to pressing end of the year questions are following me, Dr. C., on Twitter @BHSBUSD, reading the emailed script to this call each week and by accessing our school website which is updated regularly this time of year. Here is some important information from our Student Center:

    10th grade parents and other families interested in college /career options for their students moving forward can find the 10th grade advisement e-book online under the Counseling tab on the BHS website, and then under Counseling presentations. (Link: https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/63184134/10th-grade-advisement-booklet-2019-2020).

    Seniors and their parents are also reminded that end of year transcripts needed for college, jobs, scholarships are accessed through the Parchment electronic service found on our BHS website on the front page tabs titled Quick Links, Order Transcripts. This will take you to the Parchment website to create an online account. There are also video instructions.

    Summer School forms and info are now also available on the home page of the BHS website. Click on the Summer School title to be taken to the online petition form to seek approval for community college courses, and online charter school and other options. This petition is required to repeat a course for credit, repeat courses for college where a "D" was earned or take a new class for BHS credit (initial credit).

    Seniors...

    Your Senior Statements are due this evening at midnight. It takes just a few minutes to create a keepsake for a lifetime, as a part of our first ever virtual graduation. Remember to follow the directions found on our school website, as the submission must meet several criteria. Also, remember that if you are using your phone and taking the picture in selfie mode, you will record a mirror image – this impacts your moving the tassel from one side to the other.

    Senior Yard Signs: ASB will be distributing lawn signs and car flags to the Class of 2020 soon. Thank you ASB!

    Other Senior Items: I continue to receive a lot of suggestions for other ways to honor our seniors. I try to respond each of these with a thoughtful reply. If a mass email is sent to me and our District officials, I will usually give them the first opportunity to respond. All suggestions are weighted alongside the latest recommendations from Los Angeles County Office of Education and Los Angeles Public Health recommendations. Unfortunately, they are still advising against large outings, even in vehicles at this time.

    We remain committed to making all of our virtual events special. The senior awards and faculty excellence awards will air the last week of school. The graduation will debut May 22, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. when the live graduation was originally scheduled. Should the COVID-19 situation improve, we still hope to have the opportunity to host a live event later in the summer.

    In meantime, we would like to thank our community partner, MOcean for partnering with us to produce the 2020 virtual ceremony.

    This concludes announcements for the week ahead. Enjoy your night,

    Dr. Crowther

    Good Evening Bulldogs,

    This is Dr. Crowther with announcements for the week ahead. We hope that you and your family continue to stay safe during this trying time. We also hope that the transition to distance learning for the balance of this school year is getting easier for all involved.

    Wednesday morning, BHS-TV will return! We will post a link to our morning announcements on our website and all households will be encouraged to continue to connect with our campus through BHS TV.

    Parents, please join me for the first virtual “Coffee with Crowther” this Thursday at 8:00 a.m. through Zoom:

    Topic: “Coffee with Crowther”

    Time: Apr 23, 2020 08:30 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

    Join Zoom Meeting

    https://zoom.us/j/94539572660?pwd=Yk9KcjF3ekZJc3VjbHNjTnBSREwxQT09

    Meeting ID: 945 3957 2660

    Password: 037550

    This is an open invite to parents who may want to discuss distance learning, grading the balance of this year, or anything else on their minds. Please join me as your schedules allow.

    BUSD Superintendent Matt Hill’s recent messages to families described Credit/No Credit grading for the Spring Semester, attendance protocols, and the early planning stages of a virtual graduation to honor our seniors.

    Students must continue to participate and engage in distance learning to earn full credit for the semester. This means they should check their teachers’ Google Classroom daily and attemp the majority of assignments – re-submitting work as necessary. Teachers will post a weekly attendance assignment; which students should complete as soon as possible in order to be marked present for the week.

    I will start using this call each week to update senior households on end of the year festivities as plans are made. We expect our virtual ceremony on May 22 to include speeches, musical performances, senior sendoffs and more. An update on cap and gown orders will be made this week as well. We also maintain hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will pass and that we might still be able to recognize our seniors with a live graduation late summer. We will monitor updates from the State of California and Governor Newsom. Stay tuned.

    We continue to process refunds for “Grad Nite” as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

    Lastly another reminder that “We Are Responsible, Respectful and Compassionate” when we stay safe at home, practice social distancing when running essential errands and when we wear masks when in contact with another. We are Burbank, and we will get through this together even while apart. Have a great Sunday evening and week ahead. 

    Be Well,

    Dr. Crowther

    A good Sunday evening to all Burbank High School families, this is Dr. Crowther with announcements for the week of Monday, April 6, 2020.

    You should have received multiple reminders about tomorrow’s technology and packet distribution. This message also went out to Armenian and Spanish speaking households in their home language. Please review these messages for your pick-up time and our procedures.

    Please note, devices have been preassigned based on households identifying their need to us. Please only come tomorrow if you have responded to inquiries and indicated that you will be picking-up a laptop, a packet or both. Please come during your assigned time. Respecting these guidelines will help us enforce social distancing and keep everyone safe. Thank you.

    Attention sophomore families: Please look for details regarding 10th grade meetings with counselors, which of course will be done virtually this spring. Be on the lookout for an email with links to our e-booklet and resources for online advisement. These details will be pushed out in early April after distance learning is launched.

    As you probably already know, last week Governor Newsom confirmed that California schools will not reopen our physical campuses this school year. What this means for your student will be explained in the weeks ahead.

    *This week BHS launches distance learning. All teachers will explain to their students how they continue to engage remotely to earn full credit for this semester. This past week they made contact with all students and set-up their Google Classroom. Please make certain your student has attempted to access their classes.

    *Students should expect an average of 20-25 minutes of work per class each day through Google Classroom. Many teachers are also creating opportunities for real time check-ins. This will be explained by teachers exploring this option. All teachers are checking email daily. Please be patient as we work on establishing systems. As you can imagine, this is an incredibly hectic time as we transform everything we do for a distance learning platform in a matter of a few weeks. Thank you.  

    *Counselors turn their attention to seniors, including students making-up credits elsewhere. They will be in contact with you this upcoming week if they have not already done so. They are working with Monterey and Burbank Adult School on supporting our students currently scheduled for more than 30 credits.

    *The Finance Office will start the lengthy process of issuing refunds for Grad Nite tickets. This will take time, thank you for your patience.

    *The physical campus remains closed. We expected to arrange student pick-up of some items, starting with spring athletes. Unfortunately, we are not able to have any students on campus at this time. We will update again when it is safe to do so. The only exceptions are the scheduled tech and packet pick-up, and the Health Office’s efforts to continue returning medications to households. If student-athletes have items on campus that they believe are essential, please reach out to coaches. Coaches will work with the site administration on getting items to you.

    *As Superintendent Hill wrote in his Thursday update to households, we continue to have conversations focused on culminating events for seniors. I will have an update sometime this week, which I will share. I am part of a collaborative with 18 other principals. We are all working together to find creative ways to recognize our amazing Seniors. Stay tuned.

    This concludes announcements of this week. Stay safe, stay strong and be well.

    Dr. Crowther

    Hello Parents & Students,

    This is Dr. Crowther from BHS. I am contacting you today to discuss technology and packet pick-up for Monday, April 6, 2020. This is for families who identified a need during the District's and school's outreach efforts the last two weeks.

    This week, members of our office staff have been making calls to households who had not responded to the District inquiries. Additionally, teachers have been reaching out to students in their period two classes to identify those who have not accessed Google Classroom. Please respond to these important outreach efforts so that we can arrange a Google Chromebook for your student. The District is also working in supporting households who need access to the internet. More information to come through the Superintendent's office in regards to requests for "hot spots."

    Our schedule for technology and packet pick-up on Monday, April 6 is as follows:

    SENIORS/12th graders may pick-up devices and packets between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Cars check-in along Glenoaks at the parking lot gate. They will be directed towards the library off of Harvard. From there, they will be provided a device before continuing to the other side of the library on Third Street. At this stop, they will be provided an instructional packet.

    Please note, we will be enforcing social distancing and prioritizing safety. Staff will be handing-off devices without making contact with our families, however, all guidelines found within the BUSD Technology Use Agreement signed at the start of the year are in place during the time families are loaning the device. Thank you.

    JUNIORS/11th graders will follow the same procedure between their designated time between 10:30 a.m. and noon.

    SOPHOMORES/10th graders may pick-up devices and packets between 12:00 and 1:30 p.m., and FRESHMEN may come between 1:30 and 3:00 p.m.

    Families must come during their window of time, with the exception of households with multiple BHS students, who may come during the time slot which works best for them. The reason for this is that we must enforce safe social distancing during distribution. Please know, we have enough devices to accommodate all students who have indicated that they need a device. We will be able to accommodate you during your provided time on April 6.

    Thank you for your partnership in this effort and for your patience as we transition to distance learning.

    Stay safe, stay strong and...

    Good Morning Parents,

    I hope this email finds you all well during this "Safer at Home" effort. I wanted to reiterate a few communication efforts taking place this week.

    Yesterday, teachers began reaching out to their students. Many are using the AERIES system for an initial mass communication effort. This platform includes a generic message of "do not reply" within the body of the email. Please know that all teachers will be checking their BUSD emails daily during this time, and, that email remains the best way to contact teachers. Staff emails are first name, last name @burbankusd.org. They can all be found in our staff directory on our school website as well.

    Our physical campus is closed at this time, however, most staff remains accessible by email between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. We are in the process of setting-up some extensions forwarding calls remotely. Thank you for your patience during this transition to the distance platform.

    This week, teachers continue to set-up their Google Classroom. This is the focus for this week, as this platform will be our primary resource during distance learning.

    We continue to reach out to households to identify those who need access to technology. Staff will be making follow-up phone calls later in the week.

    Seniors in need of transcripts, please note the following message from our Registrar:

    Hi Seniors:
    Hope you are all well, in good health and spirits. I know the circumstances are tough and very confusing, but wanted to reach out to you and assure you that I am here for you all, and checking remotely, our transcript online service, Parchment.com, everyday and forwarding your transcripts to your requested destinations. Pls e-mail me, if you have any questions or concerns, re your transcripts, and I will try my best to answer and help you in anyway I can. Stay strong, safe and focused, these hard times shall pass.

    Yours truly,

    Armineh Dawoodian
    Registrar at BHS

    I will be sending a follow-up message on Thursday in addition to my weekly Sunday blast. Please stay safe, stay strong and stay indoors.

    -Dr. Crowther
