Good morning Buffalo Rubbing Stone families,

We hope you have enjoyed the gifts of summer!  While the weather has not given any indication that fall is on the horizon, we are preparing to welcome students back to school tomorrow. 

Students in grades one to five begin school on Thursday, September 1 at 8:00 am.  At approximately 4:00 this afternoon, you will receive a letter from your child's teacher, outlining some basic information about the class, including where to meet tomorrow morning.  Please plan to arrive at school at 7:50 a.m.  The teachers will be outside at the designated meeting points.  Plan to say goodbye to your child(ren) outdoors; teachers will take the students inside at 8:00 am.

Students in kindergarten attend school either Thursday or Friday for the one-hour time of staggered entry.  Kindergarten families were sent the staggered entry schedule at the end of June and an updated schedule was sent yesterday afternoon.  There will not be any changes to the staggered entry schedule.  There may still be movement of students on the AM waitlist early next week.  Regular kindergarten hours begin on Tuesday, September 6.

All school supplies are provided at school.  Students need indoor shoes, a back pack, their lunch, and a healthy snack.  Please keep all toys at home; they are not to come to school.  Please use our BRS website for more information.  Please pay particular attention to our nut- and scent-aware policies.

​Take good care,
