Attendance


Please remember to call the office at 771-2595 anytime your child will absent or late for school.  If you have already notified the teacher of the absence, please call the office as well.

There have been many questions regarding attendance letters. 


Attendance Letters will be generated once absences have hit parameters set by our District. 

Parameters: 5 day excused, 5 day unexcused, 10 day absence, 20 day absence, 30 day absence.  Excused absences do accumulate in addition to unexcused absences

(3 tardies = 1 absence)

* Please remember to call the office at 771-2595 anytime your child is absent due to an illness or unexpected appointment.  You may leave a message with the following information:  Your name, your child's name, the date and the reason for the absence.

* Emergency Information:  It is very important to keep your child's information updated. If you have any changes to your address, phone numbers or emergency contact please let the office know.


If your child has a morning appointment or will be late to school for any reason, it is important for you to call the office by 8:45AM to ensure that your child gets an opportunity to choose a lunch item.  All orders have to be processed by 8:50AM and we generally do not have any extra meals.  If your student's lunch wasn't pre-ordered, you will need to bring your student a cold lunch from home.

It is important that your child checks in at the office if they arrive after the tardy bell.



Appropriate Weather Attire ......


With Wyoming's ever-changing weather, please ensure you send your kiddos to school with weather appropriate attire.  Our kiddos attend recess outside on a daily basis and we want to keep them protected against Wyoming's weather.

If the temperature or wind chill temperature falls 0 or below, our kiddos will take part in INDOOR recess!

Lunch Account

by Brooke Benton

Buffalo Ridge is striving to be the best it can be in assisting our families.  We thought we would try a system that other schools have successfully used to offer reminders to families.  In an attempt to help parents be aware of low and/or negative lunch balances (as we all know that our little kiddos don't always remember to tell us about needing lunch money).  Your child will be given a reminder slip to bring home.

We hope this will strike up a conversation at home and your kiddo will let you know that money is needed on his or her lunch account :) 

Please check your student's balances or make online payments anytime at our website - you can set up balance reminders through this website as well .... it is a great resource!!

We appreciate your understanding and help with this matter!

Dear Buffalo Ridge Families,

I would like to welcome all of you to the 2019-2020 School Year!  I am excited and honored to be the new principal of Buffalo Ridge Elementary.  I would like to take a moment to share a little bit about myself. I am a Wyoming native who has made this amazing state my home my entire life. Between teaching and administration, I have worked in education for 30 years in Wyoming. I have my EdD from the University of Wyoming, and I am a proud Cowboy.

I am very excited to join the family of Laramie County #1 and the amazing community at Buffalo Ridge. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children. I am sure that together we will make Buffalo Ridge a place where students love to be.  Learning is a passion of mine, and as a mother of four and a grandmother of six, I value the opportunities schools and learning present for children.

Please feel free to reach out our Buffalo Ridge staff with concerns or complements.

Liann Brenneman Principal

Health Services
Nurse: Kathleen O'Donnell (M-F 1:00 to 3:45)

Health Services:
School Nurses are the main care-givers in health offices in all district and charter schools. They perform first aid and care for ill children, administer medications, perform health screenings, manage immunization and health records. They are available to answer questions and are able to contact School Registered Nurse Consultant at all times. Health Clerks have taken a health clerk training course and have yearly CPR, First Aid, Medication Administration, and other trainings as needed for specific student health needs.

Office Personnel assist in providing first aid and care for ill children and administer medications.


Throat Culture Tests:
In order for a throat culture to be performed on a student, the student must be in the presence of fever and throat symptoms indicating strep throat. Cultures can only be performed by the School Nurse, other staff members are not able to perform the cultures. The School Nurse’s office hours vary, so if you suspect strep throat – it may be best to see your family doctor.
