Welcome Back to School 2015-16!

August 02, 2015

Welcome back to Burwell Public Schools for the 2015-16 school year!  We hope that your summer was wonderful!  

Jr. Sr. High School Day/Encore Period

            The School day will begin at 8:04 a.m. with a bell ringing at 8:00a.m. to alert the students that it is time to go to class.  It is imperative that our students get to school on time.  Students who are habitually tardy will be required to make up time after school.  Parents, please help in encouraging your children to get to school on time.  The school day will end at 3:21 p.m. 

            Burwell Jr. Sr. High School will continue to have an Encore Period that begins at 3:25.  This is a 30 to 35 minute period at the end of the school day, where all teachers are available to give students extra help.  No sport practices can take place during the Encore Period.  If a student has a grade below a C or has an incomplete they are required to attend the Encore Period. Failure to report to a required Encore Period will be an automatic detention.   It is important that we encourage all students to take advantage of the Encore Period.

Activity Tickets

            Activity Tickets are available to be purchased.  Student Ticket price is $15.00, Adult Ticket price is $35.00, and Family Ticket price is $85.00.  Activity tickets will allow the ticket holder into all home activities except for Varsity Tournaments.

Golden Age Passes

          Golden Age passes are available for residence of the Burwell Public School district who are age 65 or older.  Please stop by the High School office with proof of age and a Golden Age Pass will be issued to you.  This pass will work the same as the Activity Ticket mentioned above.  This is our way of saying thanks for your supporting our district.

School Insurance

            Optional Insurance is available through Student Assurance Services Incorporated.  Your child will be given a packet on the first day of school or on the first day of fall practices so you can review this insurance.  This insurance is not managed by the school, rather it is a service offered to parents who may want to supplement existing insurance or who may not have insurance.  If you already have insurance, please contact your current agent before purchasing these policies so that you do not waste your premium dollars duplicating insurance coverage.

Jr. Sr. High School Parent Teacher Conferences

         The first semester Parent Teacher Conference will take place on Tuesday, September 15th from 3:00 to 7:30 in the High School Gym.  Students will have a 1:00 dismissal that day.
