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.
The students at Butler Middle School decorated coffee sleeves for Butler Health System workers through the Be Tuff Stand Up program.
Be Tuff Stand Up is part of Middle School's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program that engages students in a positive way in order to promote a sense of community within our school and community at large. BMS students created about 700 coffee sleeves that will be handed out through Cummings' Coffee Shop's hospital location.
The district has received a grant that will be used to purchase needed technology. Specifically, the grant will help provide devices for students who do not have access to their own device at home.
We are gathering information to determine who has access to a device (laptop, chromebook, iPad) and who does not have consistent access to technology.
Each year, Butler Middle School has an assembly honoring Veterans Day. Although the whole school cannot gather in the auditorium this year, that won't stop them from taking the time to recognize our local veterans and learn about the meaning of this important day.
Butler Middle School is celebrating Red Ribbon Week by learning about how to be safe, healthy, and drug free. Our students will be taking the National Campaign Pledge and tying red ribbons to the fence outside of the school.

Did you know that much of the funding our school district receives from the state and federal level is based on the number of students in our district who are eligible for free/reduced meals?
Prior to the pandemic, 50% of our families were eligible for free/reduced meals. This year, only 42% are on record as being eligible for free/reduced meals.

We were made aware of a general threat to schools on September 30th that was posted online. Although the threat did not specifically identify Butler Area School District or any of our schools, it appears that it may have been posted from somebody in our area.
