UPDATED: APRIL 3, 2020: All BASD Schools are closed indefinitely due to COVID-19 pending further direction. ALL school buildings and facilities are CLOSED – which in turn includes ALL playgrounds/tennis courts/basketball courts/etc.
ONLY those personnel who have been deemed essential (and have been notified as such) have access to our buildings and facilities at this time. Our ENTIRE team – including our full team of teachers - is working remotely with access to their classroom voicemail, BASD emails, computers, etc. Additionally, we apologize, but they do NOT have access to their own or student personal items left behind at BASD buildings or facilities.
This statement does not impact our Grab and Go Lunch Program.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding!

PDE has partnered with Pennsylvania’s public television stations to provide instructional programming to students through the seven
individual Public Broadcasting System (PBS) member stations across the state. These free resources are available to families and educators. With schools closed, Pennsylvania public television stations want you to know that you are not alone. Working with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, they have created Learning at Home, your connection to thousands of hours of educational and entertaining videos, activities, and games to support you. From Sesame Street for preschoolers to NOVA for high school science students, public television offers engaging programs that will help your child’s learning.
Please find attached the WHYY schedule of Learning at Home for the week of May 30 to April 3.
