BASD Winter Weather Plan winter weather plan

In an effort to maximize in person instruction for our students, we will have traditional snow days this year. This means students will not have school, nor will they have to learn remotely. The days will be made up according to our calendar

If we have a particularly bad winter with more than a few snow days, it is possible that we will implement a flexible instructional day (FIDS). In that case, we will distribute devices and/or learning materials to students. More details will be shared if we get to the point where we have to implement a flexible instructional day.

Broad Street Pays It Forward Pay It Forward

Using the Design Process, the scholars created banners, Christmas cards, ornaments and placemats as gifts to show their appreciation. 

Great job, BSES scholars! And, thank you to all of the amazing people who work hard to support our community and our school!
