Bus Riding Behavior: Maintaining safety and responsibility to and from school

We have recently had an increase in behavior concerns on the school bus. Getting our students to school and home safely is a top priority. Mrs. Fronheiser and I have boarded many of the busses to revisit appropriate behavior. We have discussed using appropriate language, keeping hands and feet to oneself, and staying seated while the bus is in motion. We know some of our students have a long bus ride and we encourage them to bring a book to read, a sketchbook to draw in, or a device to play a game or listen to music on (photos may not be taken or shared on the bus). My goal is to visit all of the busses in the coming days to clarify my expectations and ensure ALL students are safe while riding the school bus. Our Pine Run Behavior Notice will be used in cases where students are demonstrating inappropriate behavior on the bus and repeat offenses may lead to a loss of bus riding privileges, in these cases, you would need to drive your child to and from school. I hope you will work with us as we seek to ensure our entire school community is safe while on the bus. Thank you for your cooperation and support.

CB Barclay Farmers Market

CB Farmers Market at Barclay Reopens on Wednesday, September 8th at 4:30

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. At each event, we pass out an average of 12,000-15,000 pounds of food.

The CB Farmers Market started in 2019 as a monthly market that distributed free produce. At the start of the pandemic, we recognized a significant need in our community, with many families needing food assistance for the first time in their lives. As our operations grew, so did our network of amazing individuals and community organizations—all of whom are committed to addressing food insecurity in the Central Bucks School District. 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.

We hope to see many families at our food distribution on September 8th at 4:30. No advanced sign-up is necessary. We kindly ask that you do not line up before 4:30, and that you do not block our neighbors’ driveways. They are very understanding and supportive of our work, but also need to come and go during our events. This month, with the support of many generous donors, we’ll also have a large stock of free school supplies. If you have any questions about the market, please e-mail jbrereton@cbsd.org or mamcdonald@cbsd.org.

CB Cares Backpack Newsflash

CB Cares Backpack Newsflash

Please enjoy the September CB Cares newsletter, highlighting some of the great things our CB students and staff have done over the last few months.

All students, staff members, and visitors are required to wear face coverings while inside our school building and on school buses. This was a result of the Order of the Acting Secretary and the new Health and Safety Plan, which was approved by the CBSD Board of Education on August 31, 2021.


Individuals, including students, staff, parents, and all visitors, who wish to request a mask exception must carefully review and submit the Central Bucks School District’s face covering exemption form. NO other form will be accepted for reason of exemption from the face-covering order. Please send the signed hard copy form to school with your child if they will not be wearing a mask.


I encourage all families to have a conversation with their child around the topic of face coverings. Each child should understand proper mask-wearing behaviors, as well as your family's personal expectations. My hope is that it will ensure students are following the directive of their parents while also following the procedures and guidelines put in place for all.


Please know teachers and staff will provide gentle reminders, to those students wearing masks, to keep them fitted correctly, covering the mouth and nose and not under their chin.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we move forward.

It's Time to Update those Emergency Forms!
