  • Back to School Registration
    We are quickly approaching the start of a new school year. Exciting changes are coming to our family registration process. We will no longer be having the district wide registration at BPMS. All current student registration forms will now be accessed and completed online through the Parent Portal beginning August 1 at 8 a.m. These links are included below. If you do not have access to the parent portal, you can contact one of our school offices.  For families that are enrolling for the first time, they will access a Quick Registration Form on our www.bisonpride.org website, beginning August 1. Once our office receives the completed Quick Registration Form, a district employee will contact the parents with their Parent Portal information so the family can complete the forms on the Parent Portal.  If you do not have Internet access, there will be registration stations at each school building, August 2-3, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  You can also contact a building office if you need additional help. Our building offices are still closed for the summer but will reopen August 1.

  • Tips and Tricks to Online Registration
    Some suggestions to make online registration go as smooth as possible include the following:
    1.  Use Google Chrome brower. Internet Explorer has presented some slow loading issues. Do not use the Student 360 App for registration.
    2.  If you have issues logging into the Parent Portal, please contact your child's school office for help.
    3.  Parents of current students, should use the Parent Portal for registration, not the New Student Quick Registration Form.
    4.  Your username is your email address when logging into the Parent Portal.
    5.  PK and Kindergarten parents that participated in screening in the spring, should use the Parent Portal to register their students.
    6.  PK and Kindergarten parents who have not participated in screening, should use the New Student Quick Registration Form.
    7.  Please complete your student registration by August 8 in order to prepare bus routes, class rosters, etc.  Registration will remain open.

  • 21st CCLC Bison Academy and Prime Time   
    The 21st CCLC program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.  The 21st CCLC is beneficial for students to have a safe and fun place to be for those after school hours that parents may still be working. Bison Academy is offered at Buffalo Prairie Middle school and Buffalo High School from 3-6 PM. Prime Time is the after school program at D.A. Mallory which the YMCA contracts out through the school. Hours for Prime Time are 3-6 PM.  Bison Academy Middle School has a variety of programming available. To name just a few of our classes, Bison Bakers, Robotics, Media Madness, and BIO Explorers. Bison Academy also offers tutoring weekly.  Bison Academy High School offers open library, act prep and other enrichment classes.  Prime Time offers many fun clubs, such as sewing, stem, drama and many more. They as well offer homework time and free/recess time.  Snacks are provided at all three locations.  There is transportation available to designated stops at 6 PM.  Please contact Jana Salaki, 21st CCLC Grant Director with any questions at 417-345-2350 ext. 1001 or jana.salaki@bisonpride.org
