Learning through Play
BTSD's elementary school's utilize play-based learning. which helps children problem solve, build vocabulary skills, and foster social and emotional learning.
If additional snow days are necessary, virtual learning will be implemented. If you do not have reliable Internet access, please request one hot spot per family through your school librarian. In the event that utilities are disrupted, we will alter our plans accordingly.
