Our Lost and Found items are accumulating! Please have your child check the Lost and Found if they are missing an item. We currently have over 66 sweatshirts and jackets. The Lost and Found is located outside of the cafeteria.


If you are planning to move out of our school attendance area for the next school year, please notify the school office at this time. This information will be most important as we make preparations for next school year.

Also, if you or anyone you know are planning to enroll a new student in any grade for the 2023-2024 school year, please notify the school office at this time.

Bus Deviations for 2023-2024

Please remember that if you wish to request permission for your child to ride a bus or use a bus stop other than the one assigned based on your residence, the school office will need your completed bus deviation form by July 1, 2023. These requests are approved on a space available basis and require four days before becoming effective. If you wait until the start of the 2023-2024 school year to request a bus deviation, there will be delays and possible denial due to the unavailability of space on the bus requested. Also, please remember that the district policy regarding bus deviations does not permit more than one pick up or drop off location. Bus deviations must be requested each year.

Pennsylvania Mandates

Attention 2nd grade parents: The State of Pennsylvania REQUIRES each child to have a dental examination for 3rd grade. If your child is currently in 2nd grade, your dental examination forms are due by the start of the 2023-2024 school year. An examination is considered acceptable if it was completed on September 1, 2022, or later.

Spring is here and that means allergy season is here. If your child needs to take medication while at school to help with his/her allergies, refer to the BASD medication policy. All prescribed and over-the-counter medications require a completed medication authorization form which includes written authorization from a physician, as well as written permission from a parent/guardian. Once all paperwork is completed and sent to the health room, please call 610-473-1770 to schedule an appointment to drop off the medication. Please note, medication must be brought to school in the original container. Medication authorization forms can be obtained from the BASD website. From the BASD homepage, click on Health Services. Then scroll down and choose Medication Authorization Form.

Change of Clothing

Please keep a change of clothing in your child’s backpack. Clothing can become soiled due to a bathroom accident, fall outside in the mud, or because of spilling food/drink. The health room may not have appropriately sized clothing, so if your child does have an accident of any sort, a parent will be called to bring clothing in for the child.
