COVID-19 Response and Resources

Our hearts at Buffalo Prep go out to the entire community during this unprecedented time.  We are closely monitoring COVID-19 developments and recommendations from local, state, and national officials as they unfold.  We continue to prioritize the well-being of our staff, scholars, and the entire Buffalo Prep family.  Our staff are working remotely and, while our classrooms may be empty, our goal is to keep consistent programming for our scholars as much as possible. We are continuing to facilitate education, critical conversation, and a sense of community via virtual distance learning.

As an organization, we are committed to helping Buffalo Prep families however we can. If your family is struggling with services, food, or other necessities, please contact Mr. Deveso (716-957-6458, mdeveso@buffaloprep.org) and we will be happy to assist you in exploring options to help.  All information will be kept in the strictest confidence. Email is our primary mode for communicating about programming; please check your email regularly.
