Dear Parents:

We are approaching the end of the first trimester on Nov. 13th.   Report cards will be given out at Parent Conferences on December 1,2, 3 & 4.   Students will be dismissed at 1:10pm  on December 1st, 2nd, & 3rd. .  There will be no school on Friday December 4th.  This is an important opportunity to meet with your child(ren)’s teacher to discuss his/her progress. It is also the time for you as a parent to share your expectations and goals for you child(ren).  Parent conferences are an important part of working together so that we can insure that Burbank students are succeeding.



Burbank will hold its annual Book Faire from Scholastic Books beginning December 2nd through the 8th.  Make sure to stop by the library  when you come for your Parent Conference.  For more information click

During this busy time of the year, many of our families travel and request independent study work for their students. Vacations should be scheduled to coincide with the District’s 2015-16 instructional calendar. While we know that there are valid reasons for leaves, we also know that absences impact a student’s academic performance.  Please consider the disruption in learning that occurs when students are not in attendance.  Independent Study Contracts are for necessary leaves and require the approval of the principal. Please be advised that for students in grades K-3, a maximum of 5 days is allowed.  For students in grades 4-6, only ten days of leave time is allowed. We ask that you please plan ahead and inform the office of any travel plans in a timely manner.  Remember also, that all work assigned for Independent Study must be completed in order to receive any credit.


Holiday Family Reading Night

We will be having a family read a loud for all families on Dec.15th. from 6:00-7:30 p.m.   More information will be sent to you in a flier.   

Have an enjoyable and healthy holiday season.                                                                                             


Warm regards,

Irma Torres-Fitzsimons, Principal

New Automated Phone System!

HUSD has adopted a new system for automated phone calls. Parents/Guardians must "Confirm" receipt of each phone call  (at the end of the phone call, it will ask you to press "0" to confirm). Otherwise, the system will contact each member of your household. As a school site, we will make every attempt to keep these automated phone calls to a minimum. As always, thank for your continued support and patience.
