A Message from the Superintendent -- Jan. 7, 2022 Jan 7, 2022 A Message from the Superintendent

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.

A Message from the Superintendent -- Jan. 2, 2022 Jan 2, 2022 A Message from the Superintendent

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.

A Message from the Superintendent -- Dec. 12, 2021 Dec 12, 2021 A Message from the Superintendent

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.  

BASD Winter Weather Plan Dec 1, 2021 winter weather plan

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.
