Supply Lists


Arrival and Departure 

It is very important that your child is at school each day. Class begins at 7:50 AM and ends at 2:42 PM. Your child is tardy after 7:58 and must be signed in at the office.

Attendance is essential in your child’s education. Please make being on time and staying all day as a top priority this year.

Children arriving at school before 7:30 AM will be considered part of the Early Morning Program. This program starts at 6:40 AM and lasts until 7:30 AM. The cost is $2.00 per day.

The buses unload at the back door, car riders at the front door. Please, unless your child participates in the Early Morning Program, do not allow your child to come in the front door until 7:30.  This is a safety issue. All students go immediately to the cafeteria if they have not eaten breakfast or to the designated hallway.  Breakfast begins at 7:30 and the children are dismissed to their classrooms at 7:50.

 Dismissal Times:

            Bus Riders         2:42 PM

            Car Riders         2:44 PM

           Extended Day    2:46 PM

Please make sure your child and his/her teacher knows how to get home each day. Students will go home based on the information provided on the registration form. If your child ever needs to go home in a way different from his/her normal routine, we must have a note.  We cannot accept telephone calls to make changes to normal afternoon routine. A note or fax must be given to the school. This is a safety issue.

If your child plans to go home with another student, both parents please send a note home informing the teachers of the change in routine.

Congratulations to ALL of our fifth grade students.  Best of luck at Sipsey Valley Middle School! 

 Welcome, Miss Kristen Morrison!

Hello! My name is Kristen Morrison, and I am so excited to join the Buhl family as a first grade teacher! I have always lived in Tuscaloosa, and just graduated from the University of Alabama in the Multiple Abilities Program. With this degree, I am certified to teach elementary and special education students in kindergarten – sixth grade. I love teaching and I can’t wait to start this journey at such a great school. During my free time I like to visit with family and friends, read, draw, and play with my sweet dog. First grade is such an exciting time, and I’m so thankful that I have the opportunity to help these students love learning! I can’t wait for August!

 Welcome to your new position, Coach Mc!
Mrs. Nita McAllister
I am thrilled to be the physical education teacher at Buhl Elementary! I have always had a great love for working with elementary kids, especially teaching them skills to stay physically active for a lifetime. I have over 14 years of educational experience. I moved to the Tuscaloosa area in 2009 to marry my wonderful husband, Holden McAllister. I have a BS degree in Physical Education from UAB and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from UA. My previous positions include teaching physical education, science, and administrative positions with the Trussville City Schools and the Jefferson County School System. I have had the pleasure of working at Buhl Elementary for the past two years in various roles. I have three wonderful children: Marie, Jane, and Jack. My interests include many outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, and gardening. I also enjoy staying physically active through hiking, biking, tennis, swimming, and many other sports. I also enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and reading. I am so thankful for the opportunity to teach the awesome students at Buhl Elementary and to be working with a dedicated faculty and staff.
