I am enjoying being the principal at Buhl Elementary so much. The students, parents, and teachers are wonderful. I am so happy to be part of such a great school and community.
For the safety of your children, I want to bring a few issues to your attention. As of tomorrow, October 24th no adult/parent will be allowed past the office/lunchroom area without an appointment. Our teachers are working hard to educate your children. They are available to conference with you before school, during their planning time, and after school. I ask that you please be considerate of their instructional time. I have also been looking at possible safety issues and concerns. If you are in the building please be sure to go by the office and sign in regardless of why you are here or what time of day. My teachers will be looking for a visitor’s tag. The badge will include your name and destination. If you are here to assist with lunch, library, a special programs, or the Teachers First @ Home etc., please do not go to your child’s class without the teacher’s acknowledgement that you are coming. Teachers are required to keep their door locked at all times during the school day. The office will contact your child’s teacher to notify them or your appointment. Remember even a “quick visit” interrupts classroom instruction. On days of field trips, I will ask that you report to the office to sign in. For your convenience, feel free to wait in the cafeteria for your child’s class to depart. The teachers are busy making sure they have taken attendance, etc.
Students’ arrival time is 7:30 a.m. There will be no check outs after 2:30 p.m. All change of transportation should be handwritten and sent with your child the morning of the change. In case of emergency, you may call the school to let us know. Please do not email your child’s teacher with this change because they might not receive the email in time to adhere to your request. All parents must go through the car rider line to pick up your child. Please do not park and then come in to get your child. I fear that with all the congestion, students might be hurt. If you choose to walk and pick up your child, they will be considered walkers. Our walkers are released after the last car rider is loaded which is usually around 2:50 to 2:55. Children not picked up by 3:00 will be placed in the extended day program. There is a $12.00 registration fee and an $8.00 per day charge. Please feel free to contact the school with any questions or concerns. I will be committed to do all that I can to keep our students safe. Thank you for your understanding.
