Picture day at Buffalo High School will be next Friday, February 26, 2021. Virtual students need to stop by BHS from 12:30pm to 3:00pm to get their photo taken.
Athletic practices may be conducted today as the weather takes a break. Practice will begin between the hours of 1:00PM and 4:00PM to allow for road conditions to improve, but before roads freeze over again. If a student cannot make it to practice it will not be held against them. Girls Basketball practice - 1-3pm Boys Basketball practice- 3:15pm -5:15pm Wrestling and Swim teams please contact you coach for available times.
With the potential for bad weather the next few days here are several new options regarding school closures. We could operate under any of these: 2 hour delay- Same as always- Students arrive two hours later. Remote Instruction Day- Students will NOT REPORT to school. Instead, they will be expected to login to their classes on the two hour delay schedule. Teachers will provide lessons and students will be given instruction during remote status. Teachers have updated their schoology pages with assignments in case of inclement weather and the need for remote instruction. The two hour delay schedule: 1st Block 10:28-11:23 2nd Block 11:25-12:20 Lunch 12:20- 1:20 3rd Block 1:24-2:24 4th Block 2:26-3:25
On Friday January 29th Buffalo High School will operate remotely as many staff members continue getting vaccinations for Covid-19. Staff will still be instructing and attendance will be taken. School lunches can be picked up between 11-12:30. If you need delivery please contact the school by 9am on Thursday.
