Back To School 22-23



June 8, 2022

Dear Hawk Student and Parent/Guardian:

We hope you are all enjoying the summer! Our team is working hard this month to provide information to help support our Hawk families with some important dates to plan for in July and to prepare for the 22-23 school year. We are excited to officially announce that the 100th year anniversary celebration of Buckeye Union High School is underway and will occur this fall. Planning meetings with Alumni are being scheduled for this summer to plan and provide more info to celebrate during the homecoming football game on September 23rd, 2022. I personally invite all BUHS Alumni that are interested in helping to please contact me directly at [email protected].

In addition, we also wanted to provide our families updates and changes with the student handbook to go over with your student before beginning the new school year as all areas pertain to school safety. The attachments provided include: B2S Days, Bell Schedule, Dress Code, Tardy Policy, Attendance, school social media, temporary summer office relocation communication, ID’s, Food Deliveries, Early Pick-up, and Balloons.

We are looking forward to continuing a tradition of excellence courageously working to build a positive school culture, having partnerships with our parents, and focusing on student learning with a personalized approach. We are committed to success for all students through building relationships, establishing relevance and increasing rigor.

Parents Wanted: I personally invite any BUHS parent that is interested in providing a parent voice with the principal and willing to meet with me monthly to talk about school improvement. Please contact me at [email protected].

Back to School Days is the BUHS registration process to prepare students for the new school year that begins on Friday, July 22nd through July 28th in the gymnasium and cafeteria. We are requesting students and parents to attend during the designated days and dates to pick up student class schedules, update demographic info, receive athletic packet approval, pay fees, check out laptops, receive bus routes, receive cafeteria meal info and turn in required forms.

Incoming Freshman (9th Grade) Orientation will be held Tuesday, August 2nd  and will begin in the gymnasium at 8:30am-11:30am; bus service will be provided.  We will be providing a free lunch to all freshmen in attendance that day.  Freshmen must be registered to attend orientation.  FRESHMAN NEED TO BRING THEIR SCHEDULES.

1st Day of School Procedure: We request all students to pick up an official blue schedule outside in the quads on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. This blue schedule will be the official ticket into class for the first day of school. Students may pick up their schedules beginning at 9:30 a.m. In accordance with state regulations students must be here on the first day of school or they may be dropped from classes. The first day of school will begin on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at 10:30am.
