The transition from preschool to kindergarten is a big event! To help students and parents prepare for the change, the Butler Area School District offered a Kindergarten Club over the summer.
I hope that your children are having a great start to the school year. Last week I was excited to see so much enthusiasm as our students returned to school. Hopefully, that excitement and enthusiasm will carry us through some of the challenges we are facing.
We all wanted a normal school year for this year, but right now, we are pretty far away from normal. My hope is this communication will provide you an update on a variety of items and our plans moving forward.
We are excited to share the Kids' Weekend Backpack Program will continue to support BASD students during the 2021-2022 school year!

Butler Area School District is partnering with One2One Risk Solutions to provide accident and loss protection for our district's one-to-one device program. Registering with One2One and purchasing a damage waiver will protect you from the full cost to repair or replace your child's district-issued device and limit your responsibility to per-occurrence deductible, should loss occur.
If you would like to request a KN95 mask for your child to wear at school, you may do so by completing our online form.

We had so much fun at BASD summer camp learning and growing with our students. The students participated in various learning activities, such as designing and making creature catchers. View photos on Flickr.
This summer, we have received a substantial amount of change in the guidance and recommendations for the upcoming school year from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The most recent recommendation is that all students and staff -- regardless of their vaccination status -- should wear masks to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Our goal this fall is to operate on a normal schedule every day. Unfortunately, like many businesses and other organizations, we are being impacted by staffing shortages.
There are two areas in particular that are in need of workers -- transportation and food service.
The Butler PM Rotary recently named Dr. Brian White an honorary Paul Harris Fellow. President Leslie Osche along with President Elect Tom Edwards presented Dr. White with his Honorary Paul Harris lanyard and pin at the 100+1 celebration event in July.
