Beaver Area School District Remains Virtual

December 3, 2020

Beaver Area High School Families, 

The BASD Board voted on December 1 to continue with virtual-only learning until Beaver County has moved back into the “moderate” spread of COVID-19 for two weeks according to the PA Department of Health. The county is currently in the “substantial” rate of spread. To follow the county rates, you can use this link:

Since our students have been working in the virtual environment for most of this year, I am confident that this continuity in their instruction will provide some level of familiarity and consistency in instruction and expectations. I have included the schedule on page 3 of this letter. 

Students who have study halls, should NOT check in with their teachers. General study halls become time for independent work. Students with Directed Study Halls or Independent Study Halls are still expected to check in with their teachers, since they are receiving credit. 

CTC Students - CTC students will attend the CTC during the period of time that our district is virtual if the CTC is open for in-person instruction. Families of CTC students will be contacted to establish a transportation plan. 

Even though we are not in school, we still need your help to understand the impact of the spread on our more immediate community. If you or someone in your family becomes ill, please contact your PCP and our school nurse if you have questions or concerns. Amy Gavazzi has been in consistent contact with the PA Department of Health and can help guide you in making decisions for your family. 

I understand that this is a difficult time for everyone right now. We are here to help you and your family in any capacity that we can. If you have questions, concerns, or need help during this time, please contact me, our assistant principal or your child’s counselor. I have included a list of additional contacts on page 2 for easy reference.
