    Ms. Trudy Shields and Mrs. Elena Farina are the Kenneth N. Butz, Jr. Elementary School’s administrative assistants who will greet you as you enter the main office at KBES. They will help meet your needs or direct you to the appropriate person.


    Our school day begins at 8:15 a.m. Students who arrive at school after 8:15 a.m. are considered tardy. It is important that your child is on time each day. Parents will be contacted if your child is consistently tardy. Our dismissal procedures begin at approximately 2:45 p.m.


    Butz Express is on Track to Learn: KBES Students are Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn.

    3. Respect people and property.
    4. Follow directions the first time.
