Introduction from the Principal

  • August 2022

    Dear Burlingame Students & Families,

    I am thrilled to join the Burlingame High School community, entering with the Panther Class of 2026. I hope you had a fantastic summer.  Are you ready for a new school year?

    We are excited to see you on our Panther Prep Registration Days on Thursday, August 4th for 9th graders and Tuesday, August 9th for 10th - 12th graders. During registration, students will take their yearbook pictures, obtain their student ID cards, return all completed forms from the BHS Student Handbook, receive their class schedule, and pick up textbooks and resources.

    Incoming 9th graders will also participate in Freshmen Orientation led by our ASB and Leadership classes. Freshmen students and families will receive a special invitation to attend orientation from our Student Activities Director, Ms. Clarke. This takes place at 8am on August 4th. Mark your calendars and set your alarms-it’s time to get back on a school schedule.

    Please plan to attend Panther Prep Registration Days according to your grade level:

  • Additional information about student registration will be communicated by August 1, 2022. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 10. On Thursday, August 11 and Friday, August 12, students will attend all of their classes, periods 1-7. 

    Please note that schedules will not be changed for period or teacher requests and may be changed only for the following reasons based on counselor review of the student transcript: missing a class required for graduation, placed into a wrong level (e.g., scheduled in Spanish I but should be in Spanish II), or completed a summer school course and need to adjust a course. For this upcoming year, our counseling department will serve students according to the following approximate alpha last names:

    Last Name: A-El

    Ms. Kreppel

    Last Name: Em-La

    Mr. Buckner (se habla español)

    Last Name: Le-Ra

    Mr. Mashek

    Last Name: Re-Z

    Ms. Renzi


    We look forward to seeing you in August!! If you have any questions, please contact us at 650-558-2801.
