Welcome to Buker! Important things to know.

Buker School Parent Handbook is the go-to resource for most information about
procedures at our school.  Please bookmark it for easy reference.

How do I find when upcoming important dates are?
Bookmark the Buker calendar  on the website for school events, and/or print out the district calendar for vacation/holiday reference:  HWRSD 2019-2020 Calendar

Where are the supply listsbus routesarrival and dismissal process?
On the Buker homepage scroll down to "Buker Links".  This is also the place where you can access the classroom websites, fingerprinting information, and other timely links throughout the school year.

What should I do when my child will be tardy or absent?
Call the Buker Safe Arrival line:  978-468-8400 or send an email to Buker Safe Arrival.

How do I make a change to my child's dismissal plan for the day?

If you need to make a change to your child's dismissal plansplease do so BEFORE SCHOOL, and send a note in to school with your child.
Please make sure your child knows what the dismissal plan is before he/she leaves in the morning.  Emailing the teacher during the school day is not advisable.  In the event of an unavoidable need to change plans during the school day, you may contact the office.  Please remember it is disruptive to the classroom to have last minute changes to dismissal plans.
