With covid cases on the rise in Butler County, I’d like to take a minute to remind you to please keep your child home from school if he or she is sick. I know it can be a hardship for families and also difficult for students who want to be in school, but if your child is experiencing covid symptoms – or any other illness – please refrain from sending them to school.

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. As I reflect on last school year and this fall, I can’t express how thankful and grateful I am that our students are back in school. Not merely for being allowed back in school, but also for the extraordinary work of students, teachers, parents and a large cast of other employees and community members who have made it possible to return and stay open.
The Intermediate High School Student Council made holiday gift bags for our local shut ins. The bags included lip balm, hand lotion and sanitizer, puzzle books, small snack items, socks, and more!
Gifted students from the Intermediate High School and Senior High School went to Slippery Rock University in December to compete in the LinguiSHTIK competition.
LinguiSHTIK requires students to create sentences using the rules of grammar that meet the specific demands of the game.

Dear BASD Families,
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled that the Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Health’s masking mandate for schools is void and unenforceable.
Therefore, the district will revert back to its school board approved Health and Safety Plan. That plan stipulates that wearing a mask is recommended, but not required for students in school.
The BASD Orchestra Winter Concert was spectacular! The concert featured orchestra students in grades 7-12 along with the Butler Rock Orchestra.
BASD 9th grade interior design students are participating in a holiday themed challenge. The students designed and built gingerbread houses. Vote for your favorite between now and December 21!

Save the date! The 7th Grade Chorus Concert is coming up on December16 at 6:00 pm in the Intermediate High School auditorium. We hope to see you there!
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.
Ms. Lindsey Walker had always hoped to take her 9th grade interior design class to Fallingwater.
When Dr. White offered all BASD teachers the chance to submit a “DREAM” proposal and win $500 to turn their dream into a reality, Ms. Walker jumped at the chance. Her proposal was selected and her dream became a reality!
