There are still questions and rumors ciculating about whether the district will have students make up the last snow day, from February 21. At this point, students will still NOT have to make up any days missed so far. We realize there could be more weather related delays or cancellations to school that could affect future decisions. The school board and district administration will continue to monitor the number of student days and will make decisions as the situation presents itself. If more school is cancelled and a decision is made to make up the time, parents will be notified as soon as possible. This has been an unseasonably harsh winter, and we appreciate the parent support even though the decisions that have been made have impacted family schedules.

Parents will make that decision during kindergarten registration.
BHS Technology Presentation for Parents and Community
To help answer this question, "What are Kids doing wth Technology and What do Parents Need to Know?", Buffalo High School (BHS) is providing a FREE seminar, open to all parents and the public, on Monday, March 17 at 7 p.m. in the BHS Performing Arts Center. BHS Assistant Principal Brandon Prell and Buffalo Police School Resource Officers Josh Erickson and Mark Brown will be presenting on how students use technology and the information and strategies parents should have to promote good digital citizenship with their child(ren).
Technology is continuously changing and it can be a powerful influence in both positive and negative ways. Parents will be encouraged to have two-way discussions with their child(ren) to show how they value the appropriate use of technology, and to allow their child(ren) to honestly share how they are using technology and what they are doing online.
