From the office:
School Attendance: If your child is going to be absent, you MUST call the School Absentee Line at 781-273-7649 BEFORE 8:10 am on the day of the absence.  An answering machine will record your message.  Please leave your Child’s name, grade level, teacher’s name and reason for the absence.

From the Nurse:
We all know accidents happen and a quick change of clothes can make a difference in your day:
If you have any clothing that you are willing to donate to the    nurse's office. Please feel free to send it in with your child marked for donation to the nurse.

Cori Forms
If you are planning to volunteer or chaperone during this school year (and we hope you will), you must be CORI’d. You can do this by visiting the Superintendent’s office to fill out a CORI (Criminal Offender Records Information) form.  You will also need to bring a government-issued photo ID (a license will do). The Superintendent’s Office is located in the business office at the Burlington High School, 123 Cambridge Street. The entrance is around the back of the school. CORI approvals are good for three years, so if you filled out a CORI during the last two years, it is not necessary to submit a form again for this year. If you are unsure of when your last CORI was done, please call the school office and Mrs. Bogosh or Mrs. Doherty will be happy to help.

4th grade Instrumental Music Lessons:

Registration is still open for all students interested in playing flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet and trombone.

Fuel assistance is for low-income tenants and homeowners, and eligibility is based on the household’s gross annual income. Renters may also receive fuel assistance even if their heat is included in the rent.

Recipients of State Fuel Assistance are also eligible for discounted rates on their electric  and gas utility bills. Additionally, residents may be eligible for weatherization services, heating system repairs, and Citizens Energy heat assistance programs. Fuel assistance payments for actual usage or fuel delivery are made directly to the heating vendor for primary energy needs from November 1st to April 30th, except when cost of heating is included in the rent.
Initial applications can be accepted starting November 1, 2016
