    A Message from the Principal

    Safety Reminder


    Dear Parents,

                An accident occurred this morning in front of Burchfield Primary School.  One of our parents and her two children were struck by a vehicle as they attempted to cross Fremont St. to arrive on our campus.  They were using the crosswalk and had activated the crosswalk lights. This accident is a reminder of the precautions we need to take when driving through a school zone.

    1. Recognize School Zones
    2. Reduce your speed when driving through school zones

    3. Expect increased traffic in and around school zones
    4. Be aware of pedestrian crosswalks in school zones

    This notice is a reminder we should always be defensive drivers aware of our surroundings when driving through school zones.  As pedestrians, please take extra precautions when using crosswalks.  Look both ways before crossing and be sure traffic has come to a complete stop.  Our goal is the safety of all our families walking and driving to and from school.

    Estimado padres,

                   Ocurrió un accidente esta mañana frente a la escuela primaria Burchfield. Uno de nuestros padres y sus dos hijos fueron golpeados por un vehículo cuando intentaban cruzar la calle Freemont para llegar a nuestro campus. Estaban usando el paso de peatones y habían activado las luces de cruce. Este accidente es un recordatorio de las precauciones que debemos tomar al conducir en una zona escolar.

    1. Reconocer las zonas escolares
    2. Reducir tu velocidad al conducir por zonas escolares.
    3. Esperar un mayor tráfico en y alrededor de las zonas escolares
    4. Conocer los cruces peatonales en zonas escolares.

    Este aviso es un recordatorio de que siempre debemos ser conductores defensivos conscientes de nuestro entorno cuando conducimos a través de zonas escolares. Como peatones, tome precauciones adicionales cuando use cruces peatonales. Mire a ambos lados antes de cruzar y asegúrese de que el tráfico se haya detenido por completo. Nuestro objetivo es la seguridad de todas nuestras familias que caminan y conducen hacia y desde la escuela.

    Early Arrivals:  Please do not drop off students before 8:00 a.m.  There is no playground supervision until 8:00 a.m. If a student is eating breakfast, they may be dropped off at 7:50 a.m.

    Spirit Wear:  Friday is Red Day at Burchfield Primary School.  All students are encouraged to wear red to school to show their school spirit.  BPS t-shirts/sweatshirts are available in the office. 

    Wednesday Schedule:  Just a reminder that every Wednesday all schools in the district will dismiss students a half hour early so teachers can meet to better plan and implement programs for all students.  BPS students will be released at 1:45 p.m.  Thank you for your cooperation.
