This year we started a new recognition award for staff who have gone above and beyond for staff, students, and/or community. You all came through (like always) with outpouring of support and appreciation for our staff. It is this partnership that makes Buhler so exceptional. We handed out a third of the nominations for November. In December and January, we will do it again!! In a random drawing from this group of recipients, Lori Zachary (BHS PE teacher) and Leanna Porter (PCE PreK para) won a $25 gift card to Dillons. Thank you to The Buhler Education Foundation for supporting this program!!

Buhler Families,  The district received word today that the traffic signal that is installed at 30th and Lucille is being removed. I have reached out to City Manager, Gary Meagher, regarding concerns surrounding safety and traffic flow during arrival and dismissal times at Prairie Hills Middle School. He shared that the completed traffic studies were conducted when school was in session. The results do not meet current requirements to have a stoplight at the intersection.  We are working together to find alternative solutions. I am appreciative of the partnership we have with Gary Meagher and the City of Hutchinson. We both want the same outcome-- efficiency of traffic flow and safety of our community.   In the meantime, please be aware of the changes to the intersection starting MONDAY, AUGUST 22nd: *New stop signs will be installed on Lucille at the the intersection of Lucille and 30th. *The traffic light on Lucille will be placed on flashing red. *The traffic light on 30th will be placed on flashing yellow.  *The flashing traffic signals will stay on until Tuesday, August 30th, at which time the lights will be removed.  Please talk to your younger drivers about this change.   For guardians during pick up at PHMS, it is IMPERATIVE that cars do not block the south parking lot exit as buses exit the lot. Please give buses the right of way. We appreciate your patience as we work through new traffic patterns. Cindy Couchman, Superintendent Buhler Schools
