Good Morning Buhler Crusader Community, As the sun rises this morning, we are all counting our blessings that no lives were lost in the fires yesterday. "Things" can be replaced and that is what we now start work on. Our firefighters - across the state - came together yesterday to make some miracles happen saving lives and many homes. There are quite a few homes and families that have been devastated and have little more than the clothes on their backs. I am working to gather names and numbers of our Buhler students and employees to get a list going of immediate needs. Currently, I know of at least 4 families that have lost everything. Many of you have such generous hearts and are willing and able to help. Here are two safe and reliable ways to donate. Both options below are tax deductible. 1) To donate specifically to help Buhler School students, families, and employees: Write a check to Buhler Education Foundation with "fire victims" in the memo line. That can be mailed or dropped off at our district office: USD 313, 406 W. 7th, Buhler, KS 67522. OR can be dropped off at any First National Bank location. 2) To donate to any fire victim, United Way of Reno County is helping by collecting money at https://www.unitedwayofrenocounty.org/?fbclid=IwAR1EhTHipGS-FQr-r02jo6rrqFCDfv3VEiRoH9xid7dV079JS0Bm5iXkZKQ Another valuable resource is Reno County VOAD (Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster). For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/renocovoad/ As you consider helping financially, please always do your research and make sure the organization or page you donate to is a reliable place to give. Currently, there are 4 families with various ages of students we are aware of who need items. We will get organized quickly today. The easiest way for people to help right now is by donating money to purchase items specific to each student such as school supplies, clothes, toiletries, etc. Soon we will get a list going of other needs that can be dropped off if needed.

Congratulations to our boys’ basketball team on a sub-state championship! They will compete at the state tournament in Salina next week. #Bexceptional #CommittedtoExcellence
Buhler Family, Please keep our first responders (and their families) in your thoughts and prayers as they continue to fight the fires to protect our lives and property. I understand we have some families that have lost their homes and have many that have property damage already. As we get confirmation of their needs and how we can help, there will be information on how to contribute posted. If your family has lost a home, please reach out to your school administrator or private message us on our page. We are here to help. We are a Buhler Family and as such, will rally to make sure needs are met. For those coming to support the Buhler boys tonight at 6:00, please avoid Buhler Haven Road and 30th. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler Schools

Good Morning, After reviewing the newest National Weather Service packet released this morning and confirming with the radar, Buhler USD 313 will NOT have school Thursday, February 17th. A decision regarding activities will be made by 11:30 am. Please note that because we are out of extra days, Buhler will have a change in the calendar. There WILL be school on Monday, April 18th, to make up the time. Stay safe and enjoy the snow!! Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler USD 313
You know what makes Buhler amazing? Our staff and community! Without any buses running and an hour notice, all students were safely picked up from our schools by 3:45. AND - an enormous thank you to our firefighters and first responders for once again keeping our community and property safe. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers along with the families and staff who have been evacuated. 30th Street will most likely be open to local traffic only from Obee Road to Buhler-Haven road tomorrow morning. The good news tonight is..."All busses will run as normal tomorrow morning." Thank you!! Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler USD #313
Due to many fires in the area and many roads closed, we are making adjustments to bussing this afternoon. The situation is fluid and we are doing this out of an abundance of caution. There will be no bussing district wide. BGS - Students can be picked up starting now. Please use the north lot. UV - Students may be picked up immediately. Please park and walk up to the school. BHS - Please call the office to pick students up. If your student drove to school, you may call the office to excuse them from school. PHMS - Normal parent pickup can begin immediately PC - Normal parent pickup can begin immediately Thank you and stay safe.
Good Afternoon, If you have been following the weather patterns and forecast this week, you already know there is a chance for extreme weather. I wanted to update you on a couple of items in regards to days. We are required to have 1,116 hours of student contact time by the state of Kansas. We are now down to about 0.48 days left before we will need to make up time. At our last Board of Education meeting, the designated day to make that time up (if needed) is Monday, April 18th. It is always a worry that if I know we have to make time up, that I will evaluate the conditions with a more critical eye. I want to assure you that the safety of our staff and students is the priority. If we have to come to school on April 18th to keep our staff and students safe, that is what we will do. IF we would happen to need an additional day, we would add that time to the end of the school year. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler USD #313
Buhler Schools will partner with the Cosmosphere to host a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Family Night on Tuesday, March 8th from 6:30-8:00pm.

Good Evening, To allow the sun to come up, additional time for roads to be driven on, and our crews to clear any new, small drifts in our parking lots and sidewalks, Buhler USD 313 will start two hours late on Friday, February 4th. Please see below for specific building start times and information. With the 2 hour late start, the following will be implemented: *No morning PreK *No breakfasts will be served *Shining Stars will be open 2 hours late *All start times will shift back two hours (elementary 10:00, PHMS 10:20, BHS 10:10) *Bus pick up times will be 2 hours later *High school students will report directly to 1st hour *Middle school students will report directly to 1st hour Many roads are completely clear but with snow blowing over the roads in spots, there are some occasional snow-packed areas, so please drive slowly and allow space for the car in front of you. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler USD #313
Good Afternoon, After driving area roads, the wind causing snow drifts is already a concern for safe travel. With overnight winds, drifting of roads will continue to be an issue in the morning. Due to unsafe traveling conditions, Buhler Schools USD #313 will NOT be in session on Thursday, February 3rd. A decision on activities for Thursday afternoon will be made before 11:30 am tomorrow. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler USD #313
Good Afternoon, Using the National Weather Service forecast of snow and wind chill for Wednesday combined with the very high confidence level of the event occurring, Buhler Schools USD #313 will NOT be in session on Wednesday, February 2nd. Additionally, there will be no activities including practices. It is unusual for us to make this determination this early; however, all weather models are showing significant weather and travel impact. We hope this allows time for families to make arrangements for children tomorrow. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler USD #313
