Parent Portal has been replaced with a new CPS system called Aspen. Aspen will provide the same capabilities of the old Parent Portal while adding new features like an easy-to-use mobile interface.
All current Parent Portal users and parents who are interested in creating an account for the first time must set up a new account.
All parents should have received an email with instructions on how to securely set up your new Aspen account. If you experience difficulties or did not receive an email, please complete Burley's Online Aspen Help Form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible!
Visit cps.edu/parent for information, tutorials, and helpful resources!
Fill out Burley's Online Aspen Help Form if you are unable to log in or have not received an email.
This event means so much to the kids -- and YOU can help make it happen! There are 3 easy steps to sign up and get CPS volunteer approval:
There's fun planned for ALL ages - so mark your calendars, get your costume ready (no masks or toy weapons please!) and join us for a "spook-tacular" time at Burley's biggest family party of the year!
Stay tuned for more detail on tickets, activities, and more.
Contact your room parent if you'd like to help plan your classroom activity. Or join a Fun Fair committee -- admissions, raffle, decorations, food, bingo, or haunted house (7-8)! We need lots of people to make this event a success. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. More volunteer information is coming soon.
Donate Raffle Prizes!

Specials Teachers, Diverse Learners, Explore the Building
Feel free to explore the building or visit our Specials classrooms (STEAM, Art, Physical Education and Technology) and the Diverse Learners classrooms. These classrooms will be open and the teachers will be available to talk with you about their curriculum and goals for the year. Say hello to Ms. Plocher, Ms. Nash and Mr. Urbina who will be around the building throughout the evening. Diverse Learners and Specials classrooms will remain open for all three sessions.
Pre-K through 8th Grade Homeroom Presentations
Pre-K through 8th grade homerooms will open starting at 6:00pm. Visit your child's classroom, meet their teachers and attend a presentation on what your child will be learning this school year and how you can support your students at home. There will be a limited time at the end of the half hour session for a short question and answer session.
Repeated Pre-K through 8th Grade Homeroom Presentations
Teachers will be repeating their previous presentation for parents who have more than one child at Burley. If you wish, consider visiting another Specials or Diverse Learner teacher.
Please remember - children are encouraged not to attend Curriculum Night. This event is designed for parents only.
