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.
Dear BASD Families of Students in Grades K-6:
If you have not yet completed the district's technology survey for students in grades K-6, please take a moment to do so as soon as possible.
SURVEY LINK: https://forms.gle/s6YgT8WBkXk2LaMf7
If you already completed the survey, no further action is needed. Thank you!
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.
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 PA Department of Agriculture awarded Butler Area School District a Farm to School grant in the amount of $15,000 to strengthen childhood nutrition and agricultural education.

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.
