Dear Butler Area School District Community:
I hope your families are safe and well. As we continue to prepare for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, I want to provide our school community with an update. Our priorities for the 2020-2021 school year are:
- Stay safe. We will do all that we can to keep everyone in our school community safe.
- Reopen our schools. Unless the Governor issues a mandatory closure, we intend to open our schools.
- Provide options. This situation is constantly evolving as are the individual needs of our students. Our goal is to provide our families with several options as well as the flexibility to move between the learning options as needed.
- Support our students. We will continue to strive to support our students academically, socially and emotionally.
To meet these priorities, we have found it necessary to revise our initial plans to put additional strategies and options in place to keep students and staff safe while meeting the needs of our students. Our initial plan had three planned strategies based on the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Red, Yellow and Green designation. We have added another level, which we are calling "Enhanced Green" in our reopening plans.
