Principal's Message

Welcome to Bursch Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year! We are looking forward to another exciting year. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families! The first day of school is Thursday, August 18, 2022.

I feel blessed to be working with a committed and talented group of educators. We are also blessed by our parents. Together, we’ll find our way forward with our kids at the center of it.

School hours are 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please note that students are dismissed at 1:15 p.m. on designated Wednesdays. Please look at the district calendar, digital copies are available online and hard copies are available in our office.

Students entry and dismissal gates:

SDC students will enter through the front office gate on 156th Street 
Kindergarten - 2nd grade  – kindergarten gate on 156th Street
3rd - 8th grade  – Gate near preschool on 156th Street 

Teachers will have class rosters at each gate when receiving students. The information will also be disseminated via ParentSquare and Class Dojo.

A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2022-2023 school year. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level. Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities. Thank you for being positive with your child and helping him/her understand that it is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. ALL of our staff work hard to make school a positive experience for ALL students. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, peer group and teacher.

Ms. Provost, Principal
