First day of school 2019-2020

A Good Evening to all BHS Families,

This is Dr. Crowther with announces regarding first day procedures for Monday, August 12, 2019.

Remember, there is no Period 0, or Early Release on the first day of school. All students start at 8:00 a.m. As students enter the quad, they will be directed to one of our kiosk stations, where large spreadsheets list all students by grade level, last name and first period class. There is also a master list of all students located in the cafeteria. Any student who is not listed, should report to the Student Center for assistance.

Students will then report to first period, where they will be given a copy of their official schedule of classes. Our ASB students and many BHS staff will be in the quad to assist students and they will be identifiable by a BHS shirt.

One more important note about schedules; classes are full, our schedule is impacted, and we cannot make schedule changes based on teacher requests. Only scheduling errors or course changes can be accommodated at this time. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I want to encourage all families to join our PTSA. Last year, the PTSA donated over $3,000 in scholarships to the senior class, senior trip, provide all concessions for home BHS football games, sponsored senior breakfast, paid for the social science student award dinner, assisted with graduation, held “Reflections” art awards, hosted four faculty and staff luncheons, supported fare-wage raises and BUSD efforts to pass the parcel tax.

Visit, https://jointotem.com/ca/burbank/burbank-high-ptsa, and support our PTSA today!

This Friday is a football scrimmage versus West Ranch, our season kicks-off Friday, August 23 against Moorpark at Memorial Field. Come on out and support our Bulldogs. Girls’ volleyball begins its season against Providence on August 19. See the calendar on our school website for a full breakdown of the fall sports’ season, activities and much more. You are also encouraged to download our app and to follow us on social media. You can follow me, Dr. C @BHSBUSD, on Twitter. Please do.

As families get acquainted with our nine new teachers for this school year, I would also like everyone to join us in welcoming new School Resource Officer Dustin Rodriguez. Officer Rodriguez will be on campus at BHS and will have an office in our Student Center.

I am also pleased to announce Sidney Cooke as our new boys’ basketball coach. Coach is well known in the SoCal Hoops scene having been around basketball for decades. He coached at Renaissance Academy for 16 years, winning two CIF titles, and he was most recently assisting the program at Glendale Community College. Most importantly, he will develop student-athletes in the truest sense of the word.

Good luck to all Bulldogs this school year. Remember the importance of a great start as it is much easier to “stay caught-up” then to “get caught-up.” Make your mark, and have a successful year.

It’s still great to be a Bulldog, we are Burbank… good night.

-Dr. Crowther, Principal
