    Pearl Buck Elementary opens its doors to students at 8:50 each morning.  The official school day ends at 3:30 PM.  We begin to dismiss our walkers and car riders at 3:33 PM, followed by our bus riders.  

    Please do not drop-off your child before 8:50 AM, as we do not provide supervision until 8:50.  If before or after care is needed, Neshaminy Kids Club is our in-house provider.  They may be contacted at 215-757-2554.  You may also choose to utilize another before/after care provider that services our school.  Before and after care providers are fee-based.  Please contact them directly to discuss their rates.

  • Office reminders

    • Please remember to bring I.D. with you when picking up your child. If someone else routinely picks-up your child, please make sure to list them as an emergency contact AND remind them to have proper I.D. when they arrive.

  • Be food allergy aware!

    Due to varied allergy and dietary needs, please contact your child's teacher before sending in food for students other than your child (e.g. for birthday celebrations, class parties). Do not send in any items until the teacher has responded and confirmed the appropriateness of your request. Also, students should not share food at any time during school - even with a close friend. A seemingly harmless food item may unexpectedly contain allergens, or interact with other medical conditions. Depending on the health needs in the classroom, teachers may choose to avoid food-oriented experiences altogether.
