"START WITH HELLO" WEEK : September 23rd - September 27th

Buckeye Elementary will be participating in a special week that encourages students to reach out and help other students.  Last year over 12,000 schools participated in this effort to spread awareness of the effects of social isolation.  This special week will give students the skills they need to reach out and help their classmates.  Please click here to see the schedule which lists the different ways in which Buckeye Elementary will be taking part in "Start With Hello" week.  We ask that everyone wear green on Monday to start our week off by showing support and honoring those affected by Sandy Hook and other acts of violence.




The delayed start days give our teachers an opportunity to focus on activities and expectations that are aligned to district goals and our Strategic Plan.  School start times and bus schedules are delayed by exactly two hours.  These are the late arrival dates for the 2019-2020 school year:

Returning Student Link

Your username is your student ID (this is the same number as your child’s lunch code, and it is available in Progress Book, and in PayForIt) & your password is your student's birthday (MM/DD/YYYY). Please make sure to include the backslashes. 



School fees for grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade are $50.00.  You may send this in with your child or pay online via "".  If you pay with a check, please make it payable to "Buckeye Primary School".

Message from Food Service



If you plan on picking your child up after school, please send a note in with your child so their teacher and office staff are aware.  The car rider placard's purpose is to help our staff identify which car the child is to get into - we still need to receive communication from you that your child will be picked up.  If you are picking your child up on a permanent basis, we will accept a note covering the entire school year or a specific time period.



Per Board policy, photos of students within the classroom are not to be taken without the permission of the teacher.  In addition to this policy, we request that photos not be published on any social media website.



Reporting your child's absence

Absences for students in the Primary Building can be reported by calling 330-722-8257 ext. 9203.  If your child is sick or has an appointment, we ask that you call to report this by 9:30 AM.
