Celebrate National School Breakfast Week March 6th through 10th
Please come join us as we celebrate National School Breakfast Week! Adults can join for a great meal to start their day for just $1.00 !!! Bring a smile to your kiddos face :)
Breakfast starts at 8:05AM
Prizes will be given each day for the student with a "lucky tray" ......
Our staff and students worked very hard to make this great presentation for families to see the wonderful work being done at Buffalo Ridge. It is heart warming to see such great pride for Buffalo Ridge in the students.
We hope you enjoy!
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 per-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 the colder weather soon approaching, 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!
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)

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 as well as we will place a stamp on their hand and discontinue the automated calls 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!!
