* This message is for all 9th students, new SHS students and their parents/guardians.*
Dear New SHS Parents and Students:
Welcome to Butler Senior High School! The purpose of our 9th grade and new student orientation is to give new students and parents an opportunity to preview their schedule for the upcoming school year and to become acquainted with the building facilities.
The Butler Area School District will be transitioning from Tyler to a new Student Information System at the start of the 2023-2024 school year. The new system is Infinite Campus, which will contain similar information, including contact information, student schedules, grades, attendance information and much more. More specifically, the system will be utilized to communicate the 2023-2024 teachers for elementary students and schedules for secondary students.
Welcome back to another exciting school year at the Senior High! We hope this letter finds you well and eager to return back to school. Whether you're returning students or new to our school community, we are thrilled to have you as a part of our school family.
On Monday, August 21st from 1-3 PM, all 9th grade students and new students to the SHS are welcome to attend our Orientation.
