Announcements

  • School Hours

    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.
    • Please be sure to write your child's teacher a note regarding ANY changes to your child's afternoon routines. For last-minute changes, please call the school office at 215-809-6300 and speak with one of our secretaries.
    • Our lost and found is growing. It is full of coats, fleece jackets, hats, scarves, etc. Please have your child check for lost personal items. Parents may also visit the lost and found. Please check-in at the office first.

  • 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.

  • Volunteer information (new procedures)

    All school volunteers must complete background checks to ensure the safety of our students and comply with Pennsylvania law. For new volunteers this process can take 2-4 weeks, so we encourage all potential volunteers to complete this process in advance to avoid being left out of field trips or in-school volunteer activities. Please visit the Neshaminy volunteer web page for more information on this process.
