1/14/2021 Return to School Letter

On Monday, January 11th, the Beaver Area School District (BASD) Board of Directors voted for students to return to in-person instruction under the blended, four days a week model that we had previously been using, starting on Wednesday, January 20th.

This means that students at BASD will again be able to be onsite for instruction on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Since school is not in session on Monday, January 18th and Tuesday, January 19th, BASD students will have live instruction on Wednesday, January 20th; beginning Wednesday, January 27th, Wednesdays will again return to a remote model of instruction.

Please to view the Return to School Letter from the Principal.
