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)

* 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!

Dear Buffalo Ridge Families,

I would like to welcome all of you to the 2021-2022 School Year!  I am excited about our new year.  I know many of you are concerned about what the year will look like. Here at Buffalo Ridge we have been working hard to develop a plan to keep everyone safe while we enjoy being together to learn. We are all very excited to be back in school and to work with the amazing students of Buffalo Ridge. 

I wanted to highlight a couple of exciting things here at Buffalo Ridge. We are excited to begin the work on the new district literacy initiative. We will implement Wit and Wisdom in all classes. The program will allow us to focus on all aspects of literacy to include reading, writing, speaking and listening. We will continue to celebrate behavior with our Buff Bucks and our Rocky Coins.  We look forward to school-wide celebrations soon. Our motto is Believe in the strength of our herd! We live this every day and love the opportunities we have to grow as a herd. Please take a moment to ask your student what this motto means to them.

As always please feel free to reach out our Buffalo Ridge staff with concerns or complements.

Liann Brenneman Principal
