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.
