Dear Burlington Central Parents/Guardians and Students,

It’s hard to believe that we have only four weeks before the Winter Break!  We still have lots planned, as you can see below. Please note these upcoming key dates as they apply to you:

Nov 23 - Professional Development Day

This Friday, November 23 is a Professional Development Day.  There will be no classes for Secondary and Elementary Students.  

Main office staff will be engaged in professional development and therefore the main office will be closed all day.  Pre-arranged student-led conferences with families and Elementary teachers will proceed as planned; Secondary staff will be at subject-specific professional development workshops off-site.

Nov 26 to Dec 7 - Grade 12 Grad Photos 

Grade 12 grad photos will be taking place from November 26 to December 7 in the Library Seminar Room by appointment only. Please visit and enter school code: BCH to book your appointment.
