The health, safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. With the recently elevated discussion regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) in the news, we want to take a moment to reinforce preventive safety measures and reference our process and communications.
While there are NO confirmed cases at the District level or in Pennsylvania regarding coronavirus, we are continuing to closely monitor updates and are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations in proactively planning should measures need to be put in place. All Butler County Superintendents/Executive Director and School Nurses are maintaining regular contact with Butler County leaders, Pennsylvania Department of Health officials, Butler Health System and other health care providers to discuss official updates, share information and, if needed, to coordinate any response. We are committed to collaborating in this effort and making the best possible decisions for our students, staff and families.
On Friday, February 21st, eighth grade students were treated to a presentation by Kyle Harris, a mechanical designer from WNA Engineering.
