Dear Butler Area School District Faculty,
Two months ago, you were all working hard to deliver high quality, innovative instruction in our classrooms. As I walked through the halls of our schools earlier this year, I was proud of the work I saw.
Then, our Governor closed our schools and we asked you all to figure out a way to deliver instruction remotely so that our students could continue to learn at home. Once again, you rose to the challenge.
The past few weeks have been very difficult. Yet, you continue to show up each and every day to be a consistent source of encouragement and support in the lives of our students.
Students, parents, community members and staff members took the time to share their messages of encouragement and support of you and the work you are doing. The messages from our community really speak to the positive impact you have on our students. You can see their messages in the video or you can also click to view the messages as a PDF>
As we move forward I anticipate both success and challenges. I am confident that through our continued efforts working together, we will find a way to prevail and meet the needs of our students and community.
Thank you for all you do. We appreciate you!
