Dear Parents and Community Members,
On late Friday, I walked through the Middle School to see what progress had been made during the week. Our ventilation systems and water systems have been repaired. We will be testing them early next week.
Ceiling tiles were starting to appear, and, on Monday, more carpet will be installed. The gym was floor was being laid (staining and sealant will come next week). In addition, furniture has been put together and teacher supplies were starting to move back into the building. We are making progress.
What does this mean for the start of school? We are still waiting on the building inspector and the Fire Marshall to walk through on Sept. 3. At this time we anticipate the following:
Sept. 8 - Moccasin, Ottawa and the High School will be open, and busses will be running.
Sept. 10 – Open House in the Middle School Gym
· 5:30 – 7th grade
· 6:30 – 6th grade
· 7:30 – 5th grade
Sept. 14 – Middle School opens
We will continue to keep you posted as we closer to the Labor Day weekend. Thank you, again, for the community support and patience. Go Bucks!
Dr. van der Laan, Buchanan Community Schools Superintendent
