BASD Athletic Update -- Sept. 16 Sep 16, 2020 Athletic Update

This week, a federal judge ruled that Governor Wolf’s limits on congregant group sizes are unconstitutional. As a result of this ruling, we are now able to allow our band and cheerleaders to perform at the football game on Friday evening. In addition, each football player, cheerleader and member of the band will receive two event spectator tickets for their family members or friends. However, we will not be selling or distributing general admission or student tickets.

Congratulations to our STORM Winners! Sep 16, 2020 Sept 14

As part of the School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports initiative at the Senior High, students are being recognized and rewarded for their great STORM behavior. (STORM = Safe, Tuff, Ownership, Respect, Motivation.)

Keep up the great work, Senior High Students!

We hope the school year is off to a great start for everyone. It has been so great to have students back in our buildings! We have a couple of updates that we want to share with you. 

BASD Cyber Learning Program Orientation Aug 24, 2020

Thank you to everyone who attended our Cyber Learning Program orientation in person or attended a learning material pick up this week. If you have already received your child's learning materials, you may disregard this email.

We realize some families could not make it to the orientation or to the pick up times we offered. Therefore, we are offering one more opportunity for elementary parents to pick up their child's materials for the Cyber Learning Program prior to the first day of school.

2020-2021 Parking Pass Application Aug 21, 2020 parking pass

UPDATE: Students who purchased a parking pass last year will receive a discount on their parking pass for this year.

If you purchased a parking pass (full year or half year) for the 2019-2020 school year, you will receive a discount on your parking pass for the 2020-2021 school year. In this case, your parking pass will cost $70 for the 2020-2021 school year. 

If you brought your check to school already, you can bring an updated check that reflects the new amount on the first day of school. At that time, we will return your original check to you. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

Cyber Learning Program -- Registration Deadline Extended for Secondary Aug 19, 2020

In an attempt to offer additional courses for secondary students (grades 7-12) who are enrolled in our Online/Cyber School Model or our Hybrid School Model through the district’s Cyber Learning Program, we will be adding live streaming for some courses that are not being offered  asynchronously through Edgenuity or Google Classroom.

As a result of this update, we are extending the enrollment deadline to Friday, August 21. We will then temporarily pause our Cyber Learning Program enrollment for secondary students (grades 7-12) from August 22-September 11. The enrollment registration date for elementary (grades K-6) is still today (Wednesday, August 19).

A Message from the Superintendent -- August 18, 2020 Aug 18, 2020

Yesterday the Pennsylvania Department of Education issued additional guidance on when face coverings should be worn in our schools. Specifically, they are now requiring students to wear face coverings all day with very limited opportunities to remove them. According to the most recent guidance, students will NOT be able to remove their face covering even when they are seated 6 feet apart, unless they are taking a designated face covering break. 

PDE’s guidance now states:

Schools may allow students to remove face coverings when students are:

  • Eating or drinking when spaced at least 6 feet apart; or

  • When wearing a face covering creates an unsafe condition in which to operate equipment or execute a task; or

  • At least 6 feet apart during “face-covering breaks” to last no longer than 10 minutes.

Learning Pathways -- Important Update Aug 12, 2020

As we continue to prepare for the first day of school, we want to ensure that families have as much information as possible. You can view our Back to School plans here: www.basdk12.org/Content2/1766

However, within our back to school plans, there are important details about our Learning Pathways. We want to make sure we highlight that information so families are prepared to choose a Learning Pathway that best meets the individual needs of their family.   

If you intend to enroll your child in the Online/Cyber School Model, Secondary Hybrid School Model or Secondary Flexible Traditional School Model, please submit your child’s registration by the end of the night on August 19th in order for their assignment to be effective on the first day of school.  After August 19, we will be taking a Temporary Registration Pause, which is described below, to ensure we can accurately plan for the students first day of school.

All of our K-4 elementary schools, our Middle School and Center Avenue Community School will still begin the year as planned on September 1, 2020.
