Parent  Survey
Burnham School would like to ensure that your children progress in their learning and that they stay safe and well during this difficult time.   We would ask you to complete the following survey to help us understand your feelings regarding your children returning to school.   This will help us determine how and when Burnham School should resume in-person instruction. The decision to open for full-time, in-class learning will be made once we can be assured that it is safe for all students to be gathered in close proximity to one another. Our decision will be based on guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education.

The survey is due by Wednesday 12/16/2020.
