BASD Flexible Instructional Day (FID) Update for Nov. 27 Nov 11, 2019

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.

BASD Delay and Closing Procedures Oct 31, 2019 Delay and Closing Procedures

 

The winter season will be here before we know it. I’d like to remind you of our school delay and closing procedures. 

I make the decision to delay or cancel school after I review the weather forecast and consult with our Transportation Department. When necessary, the district also consults with the municipalities and other resources within our community.  Each decision regarding whether or not to delay or cancel school is made with student safety as the primary concern. I recognize that any delay or cancellation can create hardships for our families and do not take this decision lightly.
