• JOIN US EVERY WEDNESDAY FROM 5 PM - 6 PM during the month of September for a question and answer period with Ms. Schuta and Mr. Bass

    Dear Parents/ Guardians.

                We would like to welcome you and your child to The Buffalo School of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management’s 2020- 2021 School Year. We will begin the year with remote instruction, where all teaching will take place online. We understand that this may be a challenging time for some families, but we are prepared to help make sure your child is successful.

                We hope this letter will help answer important information about the upcoming school year. All students must log into Schoology on Tuesday September 8, 2020 prior to 8:25 AM for their first class. Prior to September 8, 2020, students will be able to login to Infinite Campus to get their schedules.  Students will get the link they will use to meet with teachers on Schoology.  

    Students will receive live instruction or face to face instruction using Microsoft Teams. On the weekly schedule attached, the color blue will represent the time students will spend with the teacher online. Students will also have time where they will complete work or be able to ask teachers questions. On the schedule, the color green will represent the time students should be completing assignments from Schoology and reaching out to teachers for extra help.  The ONLY exception to this is students will attend every class live with the teacher on September 8, 2020. Attached you will find a sample student schedule for September 8th through September 15th.

     

    Student Material Pick-Up:

    Material Pick-Up for students in grades 9 and 10 will take place on Wednesday September 23rd   and for grades 11 and 12 on Thursday September 24th. Please follow the chart below for when students are to report by their grade and last name. Students will report to our building located at 75 West Huron Street. A mask must be worn and social distancing is expected.
