Items that will be needed for registration:
Students who will be five years of age by August 1, 2021 are eligible to attend kindergarten in the 2021-2022 school year. Registration is only required for those students who are not enrolled in the Buckeye Preschool Program.
All 2nd and 3rd grade students will be administered District and State testing in the Spring. We ask that parents plan any necessary absences around these dates, make sure your child receives a good night's sleep the night before and has a healthy breakfast the day of testing. Testing will occur on the following dates:
2nd grade Iowa Cogat testing
3rd grade OST (Ohio State Test)
If you have not received a yearbook for last school year and would like one, we have extras! The cost for the hard cover yearbook is $25.50; cost for the soft cover is $15.50. We will be selling on a first-come, first served basis. You may call the Primary Office at 330-722-8257 ext. 4137 or 4139 to reserve a copy.

Buckeye Food Service will distribute meal bags on Thursday from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm. The meal bags will consist of five breakfasts and five lunches and are FREE to all students. Bags will include microwave meals, sandwiches, breakfast items and fresh fruits and vegetables. The distribution point will remain at the back of the elementary building. THIS FORM will need to be completed to register for meal bags to help us get an accurate count of how many are needed. You only need to register once.

In order to ensure that Buckeye is following COVID Safety Protocols, we will have a new drop off and pick up procedure for car riders. You will still enter from Columbia Rd. (252), however you will make a right turn rather than a left and loop around the parking lot. Continue driving around the lot until you reach the stop sign. You will then take a left and come upon the first playground (Intermediate) and this is where you will drop off ONLY students who attend at the Intermediate School. You will continue driving around the building coming to the Primary School playground and this is where you will drop off ONLY students who attend at the Primary. You will then follow the loop and exit on Columbia Rd. Please note that you will need to wait in the entire line even if you are only dropping students off at one building. Your child needs to be wearing their mask when they exit the car.
***FOR THE SAFETY OF STUDENTS AND STAFF, DO NOT PASS OTHER CARS!
Please notify the Primary School office if you are in need of a car rider placard for your child. The purpose of the placard is to help our staff identify which car the child is to get into; however, we still need to receive communication from you that your child will be picked up. The best way to communicate with us regarding pick up is to email your child's teacher in addition to Mrs. Williamson at and Mrs. Bartko at rg. All transportation arrangements must be communicated no later than 2:30 pm in order for us to ensure all arrangements can be put in place in a timely manner. If you plan to pick your child up for the entire year or certain days of the week on a permanent basis, you may send in one email that will cover this entire time period.
We thank you for your patience as we navigate together through our new car rider policy!
We can accept checks made payable to: Buckeye Primary School or you can pay via the PayforIt.net app. All unpaid fees must be paid in order to receive/access your child's 2nd quarter report card.

News of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is everywhere and many parents are wondering how to discuss this with their children. Hearing the information from you is an opportunity to help your child feel informed without frightening them. The below parent resources offer helpful information to give you guidelines for appropriate conversations with your child:
Parents/Guardians, please see this informational letter from our Counselors for those students that are currently receiving support services.
Colds, flu, fever and other contagious diseases are a serious issue in a school environment because they can spread so rapidly. Parents, please keep your child home if they have a fever or are showing symptoms of an illness. A child needs to be fever, diarrhea and vomit free for 24 hours before they can return to school. Also, if they have tested positive for strep, they need to be on antibiotics for a full 24 hours before they can return. Thank you for adhering to our policy.
Buckeye Local Schools will be offering before and/or after school care for students in grades Kindergarten through sixth grade here at the Elementary School.
