If your family qualifies for free and reduced lunches this year, you will want to see if you can take advantage of the program outlined below. As part of the Affordable Connectivity Program, which is part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, there are many internet providers that have lowered high-speed internet costs, resulting in free or very low cost internet options for qualifying families. Large wireless providers like AT&T and Verizon, as well as fiber internet providers that serve many Buhler families like Ideatek and Cox Communications, are on board. View the White House press release below for details on the program, including who qualifies, and links to participating internet providers. https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/05/09/fact-sheet-president-biden-and-vice-president-harris-reduce-high-speed-internet-costs-for-millions-of-americans/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=sharpspring&sslid=Mze3NDc3NrQwsDQ2AAA&sseid=MzIxNrI0MTAwNgEA&jobid=158e5e77-2c1a-41c7-9b61-2f394fb14aeb

Buhler Families and Staff, Due to a severe shortage of bus drivers next year, Buhler Schools will implement a staggered start time schedule starting in August, 2022. We recognize this could have both positive and negative consequences as parents and staff plan their day. This decision was made after all alternatives were considered and with input from representatives from various stakeholders. Below are the new start times. If you need busing, please complete the transportation request during online enrollment. You will need to complete this request even if you did the preliminary survey sent out earlier in the month. Thank you for your unwavering support of Buhler Schools. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent USD #313 Buhler
