    Burns Park Elementary School Mission Statement

    To foster academic achievement in a safe and nurturing environment which develops responsible citizenship, a positive self-image, creativity, sensitivity to others, and multi-cultural awareness.



    Dear Burns Park Families,

    There is great joy in Mudville this morning as our hometown gridiron heroes have vanquished the mighty team from the south. Yesterday’s game was another great gift that we are thankful for as well as the beautiful snow that covers our fair city this morning. We hope that you had a restful break and lots of family time to celebrate Thanksgiving.

    We offer holiday greetings to those of you who begin their Advent celebration this morning and to those who begin their Chanukah celebration this evening. May this season of light and expectation bring you joy.

    While we have much to celebrate, the news regarding the Covid pandemic is not great. We appreciate your communication over the break regarding health and safety concerns and your vigilance in monitoring for symptoms. We will exercise every caution that we can to keep our Penguins in school including offering an outdoor lunch experience. 

    In regard to our recent survey, roughly half of those who responded indicated that they prefer their students to eat indoors and half said they prefer outdoors or that either way is fine. We will move forward with an outdoor lunch plan for winter weather this week.

    Our custodian has been out recently. As we are fully staffed with custodian support we will set up tables and chairs for students this week and then purchase tents for a covering and set them up as we are able. Please watch for a survey from us early this week so that we can determine which students to assign to indoor lunch and which will be eating outside. 

    As always we will notify you by email at or around 11:00 if we are eating inside.

    We continue to encourage parents and family members to volunteer for lunch and recess support. Here is a link to sign up. Our Lunchtime Volunteers Signup 

    Our online winter clothing store is now open at the following link. We have plenty of warm clothing to offer.

    Burns Park Winter Clothing Swap 202

    Report letters will be delivered virtually early this week. There have been some bugs with the system that are still being worked through but we hope to send report cards home on Tuesday.

    We’re looking forward to a great week at Burns Park Elementary School.

    Your Principals,

    Chuck Hatt and Leslee Jones-Bullock
