Burbank school officials reported this week that about 100 fewer students are currently in the district compared to this time last year. There are currently 15,191 students enrolled in Burbank schools this spring, 94 fewer students than in 2013. Of the total, 1,046 have received interdistrict permits, meaning they live beyond Burbank's boundaries, but their parents own a Burbank business or they are employed within the school district's boundaries. The school district also grants permits to release students who live in Burbank to attend other school districts.

Burbank police investigated a threat made by a John Burroughs High School student Wednesday afternoon after the student - who has not been identified - alluded to a teacher that the next day could hold potential danger. “The student said something inappropriate in class about it being a bad day - tomorrow being a bad day,” said Supt. Jan Britz, adding the student was taken into custody. School administrators reported the threat to police before the end of the school day, and officers found the student had neither the intention nor means to carry out the threat.

Coming into league competition Tuesday, the Indians were tied for third place in league, just one game behind the Apaches and two behind league-leading Pasadena. Burroughs was hoping to jump into the thick of title contention with a game against host Arcadia. However, the Indians missed their chance. Two errors in the first inning allowed the Apaches to score four runs and the Indians were never able to fully battle back, absorbing a 4-2 loss on the road.

BURBANK - Perhaps the smallest and yet most complex difference that separated the Burroughs High and Glendale softball teams in Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League opener was defense. Even simpler put, the young Nitros committed five errors, while the more veteran Indians minimized their one mistake in an 11-1 win called after five innings at Jack Smock Field at Olive Park in Burbank.

It was something that Brandon Gerlach had done hundreds, maybe even thousands of times since he took up soccer as a boy. In a nonleague match in December, the Burroughs High senior midfielder slid a few times on the artificial turf, opening a sizable wound on his thigh. “I was wearing my old sliders because I couldn't find my new ones and those ones had a hole in them,” Gerlach said. “I ended up sliding a couple of times and I opened up my leg pretty good. But I just thought 'OK, I'll just put some bandages over it and it should be fine.'” Patched up, Gerlach didn't miss his next start for the Indians.
