Office 365

Central Bucks School District is excited to announce that we will now be offering Office 365 for all students in grades 7-12. Office 365 is an online Microsoft product, which will ultimately improve communication and collaboration by providing students with: (1) email addresses, (2) online calendars, (3) document sharing and (4) personal cloud storage. The accounts are free to CBSD student and will be available both at school and home. This tool will allow students to communicate among themselves and with teachers, coaches, and other staff members about classwork, homework, and school-related activities. Lenape students will have Office 365 orientation by Thanksgiving. For additional information, please visit the Office 365 Parent Information link on our website: http://www.cbsd.org/365


Lenape Library "Fine Forgiveness"

Attention students with overdue library books! The library is hosting “Fine Forgiveness” through November 20 to benefit the Thanksgiving Food Drive. If you currently have an overdue library book, return it and at least one item of non-perishable food to the library, and your overdue fine will be forgiven! If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Reynolds in the library at kreynolds@cbsd.org or (267) 893-2816. Remember, “Fine Forgiveness” ENDS on November 20!


Homework Request if Your Child is Absent

If your child is absent from school, please visit your child’s teachers’ websites for homework information. Students may also contact classmates to get homework and information missed while they were absent. You may also contact the guidance office on the third day of an extended absence to request homework for your child. Please allow teachers and the guidance office a minimum of 24 hours to gather work for students who have an extended absence.


Toys for Tots

Please consider a donation of a toy to Toys for Tots. We are accepting new and unwrapped toys for children of all ages, November 7th-December 6th. (Grade level with most donations wins a treat.)
