Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School (BSE) is the largest elementary school within the Mohawk Trail Regional School District and serves approximately 220 students from pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade.

At BSE, we set high expectations for all students, not only as learners but also as thinkers, problem solvers, and citizens. We acknowledge and celebrate our students’ achievements, while also teaching perseverance and resilience. At BSE, children learn to work hard and to love learning.

Welcome to Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School

Greetings, BSE Community,

I hope this message finds you doing well.

Thank you to families who have been able to attend to the home/school folder and necessary paperwork that is important for our front office to receive. As a reminder, we have two mailboxes on the front porch where you can return any work at any time.

Food Service:


This is the platform that I use for sending out parent information. Please know that our district is working to fix a distribution issue. (The problem: If your household has named one guardian or parent as the primary receiver, SchoolMessenger only sends messages to that first person. In many instances, SchoolMessenger fails to reach the second person named.) We are working with our provider to allow these messages to go to both persons named as receivers. We hope to have this remedied by next week.

With the weekend upon us, I believe we all need some downtime, fresh air, and less screen time.

Happy fall, everyone.
