Students at Burroughs and Burbank high schools last month began

attending classes in the new buildings of the first phase of

modernization construction at the two campuses.

Now, family, friends and community members have the opportunity to

see the sparkling new additions at both schools during open houses on

two successive Sundays.


Burroughs High School opens its doors to the community from 2 to 4

p.m. Sunday, and Burbank High School holds its open house from 2 to 4

p.m. Oct. 20.

There will be dedication ceremonies with the Board of Education in

attendance and the unveiling of a plaque, said Ali Kiafar, the

district's chief facilities and development superintendent.

The ceremonies will last about 40 minutes.

"We are extremely proud of the way our high schools look, and how

well they function, and we invite the entire community to visit our

schools," said school board President Richard Raad.

Following the dedications, guests will be taken on tours of the

new buildings. As they walk through the campus, they will encounter

students, staff and faculty members available to assist them and

answer questions about the new facilities.

People will be directed in different groups, Kiafar said. When

guests arrive on campus, they will be given color-coded programs. The

various colors will determine which area of the campuses the guests

will first visit; however, Kiafar said everyone will have the

opportunity to tour all the new buildings.
