Buffum Total Learning Center (TLC)

Office of the Principal

April 2020                 

Dear Buffum Families and Guardians:

I hope this message finds you and your family doing well.  In these uncertain times, you can be certain that the Buffum Team has been thinking about you and your family and is wishing you well.  This brief message is to give you an update of what we have been doing since March 16th:

  • The custodial crew has been busy deep cleaning and disinfecting our entire campus.

  • We handed out many breakfast and lunch meals over the last two weeks.  Though our cafeteria is now closed, on the district’s website you will find school locations where meals continue to be distributed (

  • The Buffum staff and I have been meeting online to discuss opportunities that we can provide for you and your child.

  • Last week, the district introduced Home Learning Opportunities (HLO’s) on the website referenced above.  If you have not visited the HLO webpage, we encourage you to do so.  There you will find a direct link to Preschool – Buffum under Special Education.

  • On the Buffum HLO site, you will find many activities that you can do at home with your child.  We will be updating our HLO site weekly so please check in periodically.

  • You will also find a direct email link to your child’s teacher.  If you have not reached out to your child’s teacher, please do so.  Each teacher has created a Google classroom where they are providing stories, video links, additional suggestions and activities. 

  • Below you will find your child’s teacher’s email address…please send them an email (if you haven’t done so).  They need your email address in order to send you the link to their online classroom. 

  • Today, the district posted a new section, “Technical Support for Home Learning” on the website.  Some of you have indicated that you’ve had some difficulty accessing your child’s teacher’s Google classroom.  Please visit this section for technical support.

The Buffum team and I will continue to do our best to meet your child’s needs.  If you have questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help you in any way that we can.

On behalf of the Buffum Staff, we look forward to welcoming you and your child back to Buffum! J
