BASD One2One Device Protection Program Nov 6, 2020 BASD Device Protection

We have opened up enrollment for our one-to-one device protection program. 

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. 

More information is available on our website. https://www.basdk12.org/Content2/1824

The deadline to enroll in the device protection program for the 2020-2021 school year is December 1, 2020.

A Message from the Superintendent -- Friday, November 27, 2020 Nov 27, 2020 super message

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we have once again exceeded our thresholds to have live in-person instruction next week. We will continue to operate our elementary, secondary schools and Center Avenue Community School to Remote Instruction as we did this week.

Happy Thanksgiving to our BASD Community Nov 25, 2020 thanksgiving

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I find myself giving thanks for all of you -- the people who make our school district and our community a place of excellence, success and hope. 

This year has been unlike any other. Yet, despite the many challenges, all of you continue to show up to support our schools and our community. 

My preference is to have our students physically in school where they can learn and grow with their teachers and peers. It’s not ideal to implement remote distance learning for all students. Quite frankly, it’s incredibly difficult for many. I want you to know that we understand the struggle and we are committed to doing everything we can to support you and your children while we are operating remotely. 

BASD Meal Order Form Nov 25, 2020 food service

Our food service department continues to prepare more than 10,000 meals each week for children. All BASD students and all children 18 and younger who reside in the Butler Area School District are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch for free.  If your family would like food service during our remote learning period, you may use this link to sign up, if you have not already.  https://forms.gle/XqU3ktDzPFrYe6ob8

I want to begin by thanking everyone for your support and understanding as we transitioned to remote learning at the elementary level and continued remote learning at the secondary level. Unfortunately, we have already exceeded our thresholds to have live instruction next week. We will continue to operate our elementary and secondary schools as we did this week. It is also necessary to transition Center Avenue Community School to Remote Instruction.

Students Learn About Bats From Their Own Bat Cave Nov 13, 2020 bat cave

Mrs. Mumaw’s kindergarten students at Summit Elementary School recently learned all about bats!  They learned many facts about bats, read "Stellaluna" and compared bats to birds, and read bat books looking for sight words. They also talked about sequencing with the book "There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Bat." 

The the class transformed their room into a “bat cave.”  They blacked out the windows and door and turned off the lights! They even dressed in black or brown like bats, listened to bat noises in our cave, and spent a lot of time using our flashlights to do work.
