We hope you have enjoyed the summer so far, spending time with family and friends! We are beginning preparations for the 2018-19 school year and have included some information to help you get well organized. I am hopeful that it will be another great year for the J.N. Burnett school community!
We are sending our Burnet family letter by email this year – a green and cost-saving alternative! You and your child(ren) will be receiving this letter by email and additionally, we will post the details on our website.
There are several enclosures with this letter that should help you get organized for the coming school year, you will also be receiving a separate personalized email from Ms. Trouw regarding school fees.
Beginning this year, secondary schools in Richmond will be moving to the School Cash Online (SCO) system for fee payments. Elementary schools in the district have been using this system for the last two years with great success. School Cash Online registration information is included in this package. Please register your child(ren) using their student number (see SCO info) before the start of school in September.
Please be sure to check the box which gives the SCO system approval to send emails regarding fees to be paid. When a new fee is added to your child’s account, you will be notified of the additional item(s) via email. (e.g.: optional fees such as the purchase of a yearbook, class workbooks, etc.).
Grade 12 fees will include optional events such as Valedictory, Grad Dinner Dance and Dry Grad, etc. Once we determine the costs for optional events, fees will be posted to the School Cash Online system and parents will be notified via email. It is helpful to plan for these events if payment is provided at an early date, as this helps to confirm our numbers for bookings.
The student fee of $28.00, which covers the cost of a student agenda, student council activities, communications and awards, will be available for payment August 24th, 2018. We appreciate you taking the time to register through the School Cash Online system.
More detailed information regarding school startup can be found in the attached family letter.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to seeing all students again in September.
Mrs. W. Walker
