FAFSA Workshop - Thursday, November 3rd, 4:00 - 7:00pm
Our College and Career Center will be offering a great Workshop during Conferences! This workshop is for Senior Parents who need help to complete the FAFSA forms for Financial Assistance for their college-bound senior. You can attend the workshop any time during the 3 hour block. Stop by the College and Career Center for FAFSA support, and questions regarding college financial options.
Attendance is a key factor in student success! Parents are strongly encouraged to schedule appointments outside of the school day. If your student must miss school, please follow the following procedures in accordance with our attendance policy to ensure the absence is excused:
All Day Absence – Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707-2104) as soon as possible in the morning to report the absence. If this is not possible, parents may send a signed note to school when the student returns.
Arriving Late to School – Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707- 2104) as soon as possible in the morning AND the student must complete the sign-in form in the Main Office when they arrive to school. If a call is not possible, the student can bring a signed note to the office when they arrive to school AND complete the sign in form. If the student does not sign in upon arrival to school, they will not be excused.
Leaving Early from School (for an appointment, etc.) - Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707-2104) before 10:00 am AND the student must pick up their departure pass before leaving school. With the pass in hand, they are able to walk out of the building at the appropriate time eliminating the need for parents to come into the building. If the student is returning to school after the appointment, they should bring their departure pass back into the Office and get signed back in to school.
PLEASE NOTE: If students are leaving school due to illness, they need to check out through the health office in order to be excused. A parent/guardian needs to be contacted by a nurse, and a pass will be issued for students when leaving school. We cannot go back and excuse students who do not check out before leaving. If they do not check out, they will not be excused.
School Musical - Little Shops of Horros!
Tickets are on sale NOW!
Burnsville High School Theatre Guild is excited to kick off Season 62 with the horrifically delicious sci-fi rock musical Little Shop of Horrors. Directed by Erika Sasseville, the production will include seven performances November 10-19.
Based on the film by Roger Corman, with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken, Little Shop of Horrors begins with meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn discovering a new breed of plant that he names “Audrey II” (after his coworker crush). This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivorous plant promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour, as long as he keeps feeding it human blood!
Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7 p.m., and a Saturday matinee on Nov. 19 is at 2 p.m. All performances are at Burnsville High School’s Mraz Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are $12 for adults, $11 for seniors and $10 for students. Show run time is about 2.5 hours, including a brief intermission.
