Dear Butler Area School District Parents/Guardians:
Butler Area School District has designated Wednesday, November 27 as a Flexible Instruction Day. Students will not report to school, but will have assignments to complete at home.
Flexible Instructional Days (FID) is a new initiative for schools launched by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Students will receive instructional materials from each of their normally scheduled classes for this day to take home. It is expected that all students complete the assigned learning activities and actively participate in the assigned activities. Students will submit work within 10 days (by December 9) to receive attendance credit for this day. Parents of secondary students (grades 7-12) will receive a Verification of Student Attendance form that will need to be signed and returned to designate that their child participated in the assigned student activities. Students with Special Needs will receive Flexible Instructional Day (FID) lessons designed in accordance to their needs as identified in their individualized education plans.
Vision To Learn is a non-profit organization that provides free eye exams and glasses to children in need. Vision To Learn will bring their mobile eye clinic to our schools and provide free eye exams to students within the next few weeks. In addition to the exam, students may also receive glasses.

In addition, the VFW presented a flag folding ceremony for 7th grade students. A retired guard from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier spoke to 8th grade students. And our very own Sgt Howard spoke to 9th grade students about his experiences in the military. Thank you to everybody who joined us on Friday to help educate our students.
