There is a misprint on the picture day order forms.


Package E - Build your own package is listed as $22.00 and $23.00. The actual cost for package E is $22.00. We apologize for any confusion.

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week takes place every year in October. As a district, we will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week during the week of October 25, 2021. Alcohol, Tobacco, and other Drug lessons will be instructed to all students in grades K-6 by the classroom teacher during this week.


Please look for an e-blast with more information. This will be sent to parents and guardians on October 1, 2021.

2021-2022 Student Directory

We are preparing for the 2021-2022 Student Directory. This directory includes school information, as well as parent contact information. If you do NOT wish to have your personal information included in the directory (address, phone number, and email) please contact Kim Gauthier, GHSA secretary at ghsasecretary@gmail.com. by October 8th. Thank you!

Clothing Request from the Health Office

On occasion a student will fall in a puddle, spill something at lunch, or have a similar accident. When this occurs, the Health Office happily provides the child with a change of clothes. Currently, we are in need of clothing for older students. Please consider donating gently used/new clothing including:

  • Athletic shorts size 12-14
  • Leggings size 12-14


Thank you for your generosity!

A Second Lunch Option

The Food and Nutrition Service extended the program that provides free meals for all students, regardless of income for the 2021-2022 school year.


Students are entitled to ONE reimbursable breakfast and ONE reimbursable lunch per day. If a child is interested in receiving a second entrée, then the student's lunch account will be charged.


Families may want to put money in their child's account through MySchoolBucks.com as there will be no cash transactions this year in an effort to serve the students as safely and swiftly as possible.

Menus Subject to Change

School districts throughout the region are having a challenging time getting food deliveries right now and CBSD is no exception. Some items are in short supply, such as pizza or chicken, while other orders include substituted items. While the menu is subject to change, please know that students will always have free breakfast and lunch available.

Interested in Volunteering?

All Central Bucks School District Volunteers play a vital role in supporting the staff, students, sports programs and other activities of our schools. Please click here for detailed information and answers to frequently asked questions about required clearances and volunteering in CBSD.


If you have additional questions about volunteering in our district, please contact Florence Hughes at fhughes@cbsd.org or at 267-893-2086.

Attendance

Parents and guardians are able to submit an absence request via the Parent Portal. When a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, a text message and email will be sent.


Information regarding how to use the Parent Portal to report an absence can be found here.


All attendance questions can be directed to Christine Stevens, cstevens@cbsd.org, in the Gayman Office.

CBSD Farmers Market Reopens

Any Central Bucks family who may need a little extra food assistance is welcome to join us on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of every month at Barclay Elementary School. Our drive-up food distributions run from 4:30 to 5:30 PM. We generally have free dry goods, fresh produce, milk, eggs, and bread, and often have some frozen meat and poultry. By our estimates, 1,500 CB children may experience temporary or chronic food insecurity—a statistic which should not exist in a community with our resources.


Our completely volunteer-run and managed organization was founded on two beliefs: 1) During times of need, which we all experience in one form or another, we should be able to count on the compassion and support of our neighbors; and 2) Our community’s collective commitment to our children is a bond much stronger than all of the other forces that might otherwise divide us.


If you have any questions about the market, please email jbrereton@cbsd.org or mamcdonald@cbsd.org.
