FLU CLINIC

There is a flu clinic coming once again to Buckley Schools for the ENTIRE public! Anyone and everyone is invited to come. Please be sure bring your ID and insurance card if you have one. It will be held on October 9, at 1:30 p.m. in our schools cafeteria. Please come and take advantage of this service and help us keep these germs from spreading:) There are also other shots available. Please inquire when you come on October 9th!

You can also have your student’s here get the flu shot by completing a form that will be sent home with your child closer to the date of the clinic. This must be completed and signed if you want your child to have this shot without your presence. We do request that your child be in at least 3rd grade to do this themselves unless you would like to come in and help them with that process.

Health Fair Announcement: 

You are invited to the Grawn Area Health Fair on Saturday, September 29 from 1-4 p.m. at the St. Patrick Church Social Hall, 630 West Silver Lake Road in Traverse City. The event offers free health screenings and health selfies for the family, safe prescription drug disposal, and information on low cost medical and dental services. The food pantry and Boots for Kids program will be available. Come for health presentations, kid-friendly recipes, door prizes and much more.

HOUSEKEEPING

*Please take note that you may not drop your child off before 7:45 a.m.

*Please do NOT park in the roundabout where other cars are trying to drop off!!!

*parents are no longer allowed to walk your child down the  hallway! Please say your goodbyes at the          office door.

* Pick-up for grades K-6th is in the small gym. This is where you will sign out your younger students.

 You may enter the gym doors from the road and not through the school.

*When picking up your child, please do not park in the road! And drive SLOWLY!

*Please be on time! Being late or rushed only starts the day off badly for the students.

*Public library hours are Monday - Thursday 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Students are not to wait after school for the library to open. Thank you:)

BUS NOTES

Please remember that when your student is taking an alternate way home, or they have to leave early, YOU MUST WRITE A NOTE AND SEND IT TO SCHOOL WITH THEM IN THE MORNING. EACH OF YOUR CHILDREN WILL NEED A NOTE SO THE TEACHERS ARE ALL AWARE OF THEIR SCHEDULES. PLEASE place the child’s first and last name(We have lots of kids with the same first names), the homeroom teacher, date needed, the address to where they will be going. Many students have many different grandparents so we need their name and address. Please place your phone number on the note as well. Taking these steps will help ensure your child will get to the correct place. Thank you for your cooperation. We will no longer be taking bus notes by phone unless it is an emergency. We are just trying to get everyone including staff on the same page. These notes are so helpful in lessening the amount of interruptions in the classroom with phone calls from the office.  Thank you:)
