It was a hot first day of school for the more than 15,000 students in Burbank Unified School District as they started classes Monday, August 15, and temps neared 100 degrees by afternoon dismissal.
BUSD Superintendent Matt Hill visited the various school sites through town and welcomed students and staff back to school.
“Today was a great day! Students, parents and teachers were very excited to be back at school,” Hill said on Monday. “Many commented on the great improvements they are seeing in facility and technology upgrades due to the Measure S investments we are making.”
“I am looking forward to working with all of our employees to build on our successes, especially in the areas of mental health and wellness and our goal of achieving a 100% graduation rate,” Hill added.
The Burbank Unified School district includes 11 elementary schools, three middle and three high schools, along with a Transitional Kindergarten program, the Horace Mann Children’s Center, the Burbank Adult School, the Magnolia Park School, Community Day School and the Independent Learning Academy.
