Communicating with Burlington High School

As we approach the last days of summers and our students are just a few days away from returning, I thought it a good time to remind everyone that once again a major goal for BHS staff is to improve our communication with community members.  As we work at continuing to improve our communication with staff, students, families, and members of the greater BHS community I wanted to share some of the ways that you can stay on top of what is going on at BHS and also communicate with us if you need to.


My email is and phone number is 781.273.7662 - please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns..  All other staff emails and phone numbers can be found through our staff directory.   

BHS Principal's Blog and Twitter Account

We will continue to utilize the BHS Principal's Blog and twitter account as the main sources of communication on news from our school.  We suggest that you enter your e-mail address into the box at the top of the blog on the right hand side that says get BHS Blog Updates in your e-mail and also sign up for twitter and follow @bhsprincipal.  This will give you a daily e-mail and tweets with news and happenings from BHS.  You can unsubscribe from these options at any time.  

BHS Facebook Page:  

Following our school Facebook Page is another great way to stay on top of the happenings at BHS!

You can follow BHS department news, club information, and extracurricular news and updates by following one or more of the numerous blogs and web pages of BHS staff.

BHS Alerts Account for Emergency News and Updates

You can get the most important news from BHS by simply texting - follow bhsalerts - to 40404.  This will give you updates to breaking news and important reminders from our BHS Alerts Twitter account without ever signing on to Twitter.

We will reserve our alerts to items that impact all of our students and their families such as - Parent Conferences, School Closings, Emergency Drills, etc. If you try it out and do not like it you can simply test - off bhsalerts - to 40404. 

Burlington High School will be opening the parent portal through ASPEN early this fall.  We are still working out some kinks and cleaning up parent/family data.  I anticipate this will be open sometime in October.  More information on this will follow.

Finally, please mark your calendar for our annual back to school night on September 12th from 6:30-8:30.  This is an important night to meet your son/daughter's teachers, learn about their classroom expectations, and to speak with them about the best ways to establish communication this year.
