Message from the Superintendent 10/23/20

We are currently reviewing the learning environment selections for our students and working on the plan for our return to in-person instruction.  The teachers and staff are looking forward to having students in the buildings once again, even if it’s just a few half-days a week. Please keep in mind, we are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 positivity rates in Burbank and our surrounding area and communicating with the Stickney Township Public Health Department on a frequent basis.

Message from Superintendent 10/19/20

I’d like to thank our families for making their learning environment selections last week.  We’ve received responses from 93% of families indicating their selection for the remainder of the school year.   The link to the form is still available for the remaining families and those who do not make a selection will automatically be assigned to the full remote learning program.
