Hello Parents,

This year started with change and we have more to come. We have added a new kindergarten class and our new addition will be completed in September. The completion of the construction will necessitate the moving of classrooms. This will impact preschool to second grade teachers and students. Students will remain with their teachers, but their classrooms might change. Thank you for your patience this year. I am always impressed by Burton Parents.

School safety is a constant concern on my mind. Please follow these suggestions when you are in and around our school.

  • As you approach the school please reduce your speed to 20 mph or less.
  • Be aware of crosswalks and stop for pedestrians. The Summerfield subdivision is growing rapidly. More and more students are walking to school.
  • Don’t use your cell phone while driving, especially on school property.
  • If you are dropping your student off in the front of the school, you cannot leave your car unattended. Please park in the parking lot and walk your student to class if they are not able to enter the school on their own.
  • During student pick-up and drop-off there is no need for parents to sign in.
  • When entering the school please sign in on the yellow volunteer sheet and take a visitor name tag. Only enter the building after you have talked to a member of the office staff.
  • If you are picking up or dropping off a student, please sign out your student. Students will not be released without a parent signature.

Thank you for helping to make our school a safe place. Burton is a great school because of amazing students, parents, and teachers.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year.



Landon LeFevre, Principal
