What a great time to be a Burton Panther!!!

Welcome to the Burton Independent School District weekly update. Bond Project information will be shared as it pertains to the planning and construction of our new facilities.  Despite the cold weather and rain delays, Circle H Dirt Work and Excavation continue to coordinate cut and fill dirt work that will level the groundwork in preparation for the athletic facilities’ foundation. The process of chemical injections and soil stabilization will be performed per Geotech specifications. Circle H will also provide the scope of work for the storm drainage system installation called for by Civil Engineering. An 8’ construction safety fence to keep unauthorized personnel from entering the site will be installed. Several contracts are still in negotiation to explore any potential problem areas, present additional cost savings, and most of all to promote the most efficient building structures. Please feel free to email any questions to
