Van Buren will continue with many of our safety protocols to create a safe learning environment and limit the number of students out of school due to contact tracing and/or illness.

You will notice the students’ school supply list and the instructional materials they will be asked to carry in their backpacks have been dramatically reduced. Students may carry a reusable water bottle throughout the day. Please have their name permanently marked on the bottle to avoid loss. Students will have access to bottle filling stations in the building.
