Handicap Parking Space

Please be mindful of the new handicap parking space by the office doors. It has been marked with a blue wheelchair and a designated sign posted in front of the spot. We ask that you not park in this spot when picking up/dropping off students during the day unless you are handicapped. Thank you for your cooperation.

Annual Student Information Verification (ASIV)

There are still families that have not completed the REQUIRED Annual Student Information Verification. The district will be re-opening the Infinite Campus Parent Portal for updates from November 23rd thru December 7th. The verification only needs to be completed once in a school year. The Annual Student Information Verification process is CRUCIAL.

Below are instructions on how to complete your student's ASIV from within the Parent Portal. Only parents/guardians living in the student's primary household can complete the annual verification.

Medication Information: If your child requires prescription or over-the-counter medication while at school, a medication authorization form must be completed by your physician. Once completed, please submit the paperwork, then contact the health room to schedule an appointment to drop off your child’s medication. Prescription medications must be in an original pharmacy labeled container. Over-the-counter medication must be in original packaging. Please refer to the BASD website for more information.

Returning Paperwork: Please return any health room forms (Physical, Dental, Medication) via email if possible. You can scan and email the original document or email a photograph from your phone to either ewismer@boyertownasd.org or ekovach@boyertownasd.org

When to keep your child home:

As stated in the BASD student handbook, if your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, it is recommended that you keep your child home from school and consult with the child’s primary health care provider:

1. A cough interfering with your child’s sleep or ability to participate in school activities

2. A cough that is productive and has phlegm or is associated with fever or trouble breathing.

3. Fever: A temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees without the use of a fever reducing medication. Please note that the student’s temperature should remain normal without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours prior to the return to school.

4. Nausea, Vomiting or diarrhea

5. Unusual skin eruptions, hives or rash.

6. Redness or drainage from the eyes.

*We recommend keeping a change of clothing in your child’s backpack, regardless of their age, as clothing can become soiled due to a bathroom accident, fall outside in the mud, or because of spilling food/drink.*
