September on the Buford Block

Our first month of school in all our new homes has gone very well.  The students (and teachers) are becoming more familiar and comfortable with their new buildings. A huge thank you goes out to our administrative staffs, our transportation department and our SROs for troubleshooting all the new traffic patterns with bus and car riders. Great job everyone. I also appreciate the parent’s patience and flexibility as we continue to explore all our options for traffic flow.
It can be daunting being a parent in these digitally-driven times, where our children were born natives, and as parents we’re desperately trying to keep up. The Buford community will welcome Katie Greer, a nationally-recognized digital safety expert, to update parents on the latest tech trends, safety issues, and tips on how to help our children have a productive, healthy relationship with technology.
