Dear Western Beaver County School District Families, We have a special announcement for all K-12 students, their families, and teachers/staff – tomorrow, December 17 will be a virtual update of the Official Old-fashioned Snow Day!!! All Western Beaver schools will be closed. Your assignment is to have FUN at home with your family. Build a snow man, go sled riding, make snow angels, build a snow fort, make hot chocolate, bake cookies, build a fire, and relax! These activities will count towards Physical Ed class, Family and Consumer Science class, STEAM class, Math, ELA/ Reading classes, Science, and Social Studies class for all grades. Please be as creative as possible, as we will be asking you to share some of your experiences. Forget all of the stress and anxiety we have experienced and just enjoy a proper Snow Day. Please take this opportunity to make those wonderful memories and be prepared to share with your teachers and classmates when we all return to classes on Friday, December 18. We would love to see your pictures! Sincerely, Dr. Robert Postupac

Due to the confirmed number of COVID-19 cases within the district, we must transition from Face-to-Face Instruction to Virtual Instruction. Western Beaver will use Thursday, November 12, as a transition asynchronous learning day. Families will be contacted by their building administration as to times and locations for families to retrieve any necessary learning materials on Thursday and Friday of this week. Student attendance will be taken, and classwork will be posted to each teachers' page. Students are expected to complete their work at their own pace throughout the day. Teachers will communicate with students when they will be available throughout the day to provide assistance, check for understanding, answer questions, or address any other educational need students may have.
