    Good evening, this is Dr. Miller, principal at John Muir Middle School with this week’s update.

    State testing in English and Math starts this week for all students. Students will test from this Wednesday through next Tuesday. Students will need to have their charged Chromebook with them every day and should be encouraged to simply do their best on the test. There will be no homework assigned during the testing window.

    Looking ahead, Let’s Do Lunch for 7th grade families will take place next Friday, April 7 and the Let’s Do Lunch for 8th grade families that was postponed due to rain has been rescheduled for Friday, May 12th.

    Finally, the PTSA is hosting a movie night for students on Friday, April 14th at 5pm. More information about the movie night will be sent out tomorrow.

    Thank you and have a great week.

  • The Burbank Unified School District officially denounces racism as the product of white default/ supremacy culture and recognizes the impact of systemic and generational racism as traumatic to our country, community, and school district. In light of continuing racial violence, including the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Andres Guardado, Dijon Kizzee, and many others, we also recognize that Black people in this country have had a unique and traumatic history in terms of racial relations, equality, and equity. We stand with the truthful and humane statement that all lives cannot matter until Black lives and the lives of indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) matter. We are taking steps to actively work towards being fully anti-racist, not only in word, but also in policy, practice, and accountability. Change is rarely easy, but with the support and cooperation of the entire Burbank school community we know that we will reflect a district that is truly unified.
