    October 22, 2021

     

    Dear Berlin Brothersvalley Community,

     

    Our school year has been successful thus far as we approach the end of marking period one. On Friday, October 29 we will have completed 45 in person school days!

    We know that there are a variety of opinions and feelings regarding recommendations and mandates from the Department of Health and the PA Department of Education. We also realize that our in-person learning situation is in jeopardy of being disrupted on a daily basis for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons include:

    • Not enough substitutes to cover classes
    • Not able to get enough food delivered to feed students
    • Not enough bus drivers to transport students
    • Not enough custodial/maintenance staff to clean the facility
    • Close contacts and positive cases of COVID that reach significant levels in our schools

    We understand how to work through this situation using our technology and Schoology Learning Management System. We will do everything we can to maintain in person instruction. If need be, we will utilize the process we used last year to maintain our academic, athletic and arts programs through virtual learning.

    On a positive note, the wearing of masks in school provides relief from quarantining according to the CDC: “In the K-12 indoor classroom setting, the close contact definition excludes students who were within 3-6 feet of an infected student (laboratory confirmed or a clinically compatible illness) if both the infected student and the exposed student(s) correctly and consistently wore well-fitting masks the entire time.” This CDC provision will allow students to remain in the classroom as well as engage in extracurricular activities.

    Thank you for your cooperation as we once again navigate these uncertain and turbulent times. It is in everyone’s best interest to work together and protect our students, staff and community.

    Please refer to the District website for the most up to date information.

    Thank you for continuing to support our students and teachers by cooperating in our collective effort to keep our students engaged as much as possible in all of the "Three "A's"!

     

    Sincerely, 

    Dr. David F. Reeder

    Superintendent

  • Dear Berlin Brothersvalley Community,

    In recent weeks, our nation has experienced heart wrenching and physically devastating violence. We want to acknowledge the toll that these events have taken on schools across the country. In the wake of these events, we want to reassure you that BBSD continues to provide a safe environment for our children to learn.

    BBSD is vigilant in our efforts to ensure our schools are safe. We have a detailed emergency operations plan that lays out specific plans and responses related to prevention & mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. We conduct regular drills that provide practice to our students and staff on how to best respond to emergency situations. Also, we continue to work closely with law enforcement and other security professionals to maximize our safety efforts.

    Please know that BBSD continues to be proactive in our safety measures. We encourage the community to work with the school district and local police departments, and to report any issues that may cause you concern. If you see something, please say something, and encourage your children to do the same.
