Hello Burdick Students and Families,
I hope you all are having an enjoyable and safe summer. As many of you may know, the Milwaukee Public School Board of Directors voted in favor of starting the 2020-2021 school year virtually for the Milwaukee Public School District. At Burdick, we understand that this may not be the start to the school year that you or your child envisioned; however, we do take the safety of our students and staff seriously and understand the decision from the school board.
As we approach the upcoming school year, we are preparing our staff to deliver virtual instruction to all of our students. As we engage in this process, we will be reflecting on the feedback provided by our families and students at the end of last school year. We are looking to have a consistent platform throughout our school to deliver online instruction, a detailed schedule for virtual learning, and more frequent communication with our families and students. In addition, we will be relying on parent and student feedback leading up to the start of the school year.
In the upcoming weeks, we will have additional information for our families. This will include a more concrete virtual plan for our students, Chromebook and textbook distribution, updates from the district, and any other important information. During this time, I truly appreciate your patience with our school and look forward to any feedback you may share with us.
