School Calendar Adjustments

We have made adjustments to our school calendar as a result of our delayed start. 

Monday, November 11th has been designated as an Act 80/School Conference day. Students do not need to report to school on this day. Teachers will be able to use that time for parent-teacher conferences. They have also been given the flexibility to schedule parent-teacher conferences earlier in November. 

Wednesday, November 27 has been designated a regular school day for students and teachers. At this point, students and teachers should plan to report to school on that day. However, we are hoping to be able to use that day as a Flexible Instructional Day (FID). We have submitted a FIDs application on behalf of Butler Area School District and will know by early November if our Flexible Instructional Day application has been approved.  

The Gab Squad gab show

Emily Brittain students recently had the opportunity to participate in the GAB SQUAD show. 

“GAB SQUAD programs utilize original music, interactive comedy, and educational discussion to explore themes of tolerance, positive expression, bullying awareness, and above all, the use of creativity as an alternative to negative expression.” (https://gabsquad.com/about)
