A Word From Our Principal

You should have received a PDF copy of our Buffalo Trail Family Handbook with the email welcoming your child to their current grade. As you know, procedures and information changes frequently during our current reality. We are constantly reviewing, re-assessing, and revising procedures with staff and students – we’ve made a handful of adjustments since having our students for the phased-in week and since having all grade levels in, all day. To that end, we have decided it is best for us to share the link to our Buffalo Trail Family Handbook with you (as opposed to emailing PDF copies) so you will have the “living” document and can see the most up to date information.
You can find a copy here: Family Handbook

The flyers were made up prior to the school having an official picture date
therefore the date was not printed on the form.

COLLECT BOX TOPS!
We are still collecting Box Tops to get to our goal. Since the entire shopping experience has changed for so many of us, Box Tops for Education has developed another way for us to continue to earn our Box Tops. We know that this requires an extra step, or maybe two, but we really would love your help in reaching our goal.
Last year we met $841.60 of our $1000.00 goal. With limited opportunities
to have fundraisers this year, we hope to make this one count.
Download the app to your phone to scan receipts and choose Buffalo Trail
