Evacuation Drill Planned

At Buffett Magnet Middle School, we hope that we never have to relocate students from the building due to a man-made or natural emergency situation. However, to ensure that we are prepared for the unexpected situation, it is important that we practice our evacuation process.


On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, at approximately 1:25 PM, Buffett will practice our annual evacuation to another location drill as part of our crisis prevention plan. Students will walk to Fullerton Elementary if they are in 5th or 6th grade or Flatland Church if they are in 7th or 8th grade. These buildings have been chosen because of their proximity and their ability to safely secure nearly half of our 1100+ Buffett students at each site. During the evacuation drill, teachers will escort students to their parking lot locations and take attendance with class lists. After students have arrived at the parking lots of both sites, they will return to Buffett to continue with their regular activities. This will allow us to account for the whereabouts of all students, and it will help the entire process run as smoothly and systematically as possible.


We wanted you informed, as we conduct this drill so that you would not be surprised at our entire student body going for a walk Wednesday afternoon. As always, our goal is to ensure the safety of students in any type of emergency situation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 531-299-2320.

Homework Hideout and After School Library

Buffett offers two after school opportunities for students to have a space to work on homework, study for tests, or work with teachers for some extra help.


Homework Hideout is offered by each team and days of the week vary by team. Please reach out to your child's homeroom teacher to see when Homework Hideout is offered on their team.


The library will be open starting on Sept. 24 after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Students must arrive by 3:10. Students getting rides or walking home, can leave when they need to, but will not be able to return once they leave for the day. Students needing to take the late bus need to sign up in the office. The late bus departs Buffett at 5:00.

Athletic Events & Activity Cards!

Just a reminder that this will be the first week where we will be using activity cards for entrance to athletic events. Without an activity card, the admission for students to athletic events is $1.00; adult admission is $3.00


Students staying for athletics need to have their rides pick them up by 4:30-4:45 p.m. We love to have you show your school spirit by cheering on our athletes, but we need rides to be here on time.
