Superintendent's Reopening Update: 8.6.20

Dear Families, Students, and Employees:

Tonight at 7:00pm the Board of Education will discuss and vote on the Memo of Understanding (MOU) with the Burbank Teachers Association (BTA) for distance learning in the fall. You can watch the meeting by clicking here.

We are continuing to work with the Classified School Employees Association (CSEA) to finalize our MOU.

Technology Support for Families Webinar: On Tuesday, August 18th at 7:00pm Instructional Services will be hosting a support session online for families who are interested in learning more about supporting their child with technology needed for instruction at home. Please click here to RSVP for the event and receive information to attend. Translation will be provided for the event as we will highlight support videos, walk parents through technology support tutorials, and provide time for Q & A. Parents can access these materials as they become available here.

Food Distribution & Meal Benefits: The first day of food distribution will be Friday, August 14th from 8:30am – 12:30pm. Every Friday each school will have a drive through/walk-up distribution pick-up opportunity where families will receive 5 days’ worth of nutrition and lunch meals for their student. Meals must be picked up from the school site the student attends. Students do not need to be present to collect their meals on the distribution day. Families who qualify for Free benefits will not have to pay for these meals. Families who qualify for Reduced benefits will need to pay the reduced rate for these meals. Look for the large black and white Food Distribution sign at each school site for pick up location.

The application for meal benefits is now available online. It is important that all families, who believe they qualify for these benefits fill out an application for their student/s every year. One application per family. Please click here to fill out your application online https://www.busdfoodservices.com/index.php?sid=1101131625567654&page=lunchapps
