Van Buren Local Schools received several pallets of hand/surface sanitizer at no cost to the district. We viewed this as an opportunity to not only save the district money, but to also help our community with the intent to get enough to share with district residents, businesses, churches, and families. If you would like free hand/surface sanitizer, please stop by the maintenance/transportation office (white building in the north parking lot) between the hours of 7:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday - Friday. If you need to schedule an alternative time to pick up, please contact Jon Kelley at jkelley@vbschools.net.

As many of you may have heard, a large amount of Toys for Tots donations were stolen from a storage unit recently, leaving the drive short on donations for this year. To help replenish the donations for local children, the Hancock County Sheriff's Office is helping to collect toys. Our goal at Van Buren is to fill Deputy Crouch's office with toys! If you would like to participate, please send a new, unwrapped toy with your child to school by Friday, Dec. 10. We will have drop off locations for both the middle/high school and elementary school each morning. #BeABlackKnight
