District Pest Managment

On August 21, 2019, we had an emergency bee treatment done for an active ground nest at Moccasin Elementary School. On September 12, 2019, we had treatment for bed bugs in the office of Buchanan Middle School after schools hours were completed for the day. Our district-approved Pest Control Service preformed these treatments.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Operations Department at 695-8400 ext. 20134.

With heavy hearts…

Buchanan High School would like to extend its sincere condolences to the family and friends of John Mackie.  For many years, Mr. Mackie has walked the halls of Buchanan High School, imparted wisdom to our youth, mentored our staff, and cared for our students as if they were his own.  In fact, we consider Mr. Mackie to be a dear friend and member of our staff at BHS. He was our number one fan, in the classroom and in the stands. We will miss him.
