Daily Symptom Monitoring Checklist and Procedures to Follow

We recently asked parents for their feedback in order to assist us in learning what is working in the hybrid model or eClassroom model and what areas we need to improve over the course of the 2nd marking period and the spring semester. View the results of the parent survey by clicking on the link below.

If you have a specific health related question and you are a parent/guardian, please feel free to email Dr. Brannan at kzsikekbrannan@basdschools employees can email Ms. Hall at chall@basdschools.org.

Umpires needed, join the BUA to stay in the game!

Bethlehem Umpires Association (BUA) is actively taking applications for baseball umpires! Whether you are an experienced umpire, or looking to break into the game as a rookie, we have the appropriate level for you.

We offer a competitive level of play for all levels of experience and the opportunity to umpire throughout the greater Lehigh Valley area. Our organization officiates over 1500+ games for Little League, Travel Teams, Connie Mack, Youth Legion, and LVMSBL (Men’s League’s) from April until November. Our season was impacted with the COVID delay to the start of baseball but we still officiated over 800 games from July to November.

Take your passion for sports and turn it into a part time avocation that will enable you to give back to the community. We accept members starting at 16 and offer education, training and mentorships to improve your skills and obtain higher level games as you gain more experience.

If you are an experienced umpire and you would like to try to get involved in a group we would love to hear from you.

We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month from February through September, contact us today through our website (www.bethump.org) or email us at bethumpassoc@gmail.com for more information! We look forward to speaking with you soon about umpiring for the BUA.
