As of July 26, 2021
We will return to school for in person instruction on Monday, August 30, 2021. We understand that exposures to the COVID virus are inevitable and more than likely will continue to occur in our community. It is critical that individuals and families pay close attention to any exposures and monitor any health issues. Schools must still monitor student and staff health to maintain a safe learning environment for all. This is not a change in how schools operated even before COVID-19.
Each of us is responsible for keeping the district open for in person instruction. Do not send your child to school if they are ill or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID or one of the variant strains.
At this time, wearing a mask/face shield/etc. is not required but an option for anyone who wishes to continue this practice. There is no mandate which requires the district to wear masks at this time.
Currently, we are under a mandate for students and staff to wear face coverings on the bus. Please make sure that you follow this mandate if you intend on using the buses for transportation to and from school.
We will continue to utilize common sense safety and hygiene protocols as outlined in the Berlin Brothersvalley Health and Safety Plan posted on our website. The plan served the District well during the 2020-2021 school year and will be modified to reflect the most recent guidance from the various health agencies and the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE).
We understand that most of us were taught to “fight through” symptoms when we don’t feel well and go to school. The transmission of the coronavirus and the new variant, which is apparently more contagious, requires us to think differently when it comes to symptoms. If students and staff are ill, then staying home is the right choice. If you have any questions regarding your situation, contact the district at (814) 267-4621 for advice and instructions on your options regarding coming to school.
BBSD is requesting free/reduced lunch applications to be completed to determine if you qualify for an emergency P-EBT card which the State will be issuing this spring for students to purchase food outside of school. Click here to open up the Free and Reduced Lunch Application.
Beginning February 8th, the Food Service Department will offer the option for elementary students in grades 2-4 to purchase extra food and drink items from the cafeteria tray line on a trial basis.
The links to recorded sessions are below. If you would like to schedule a virtual 1on 1 help session to get assistance completing your forms, contact Julie Fontana, PHEAA Access Partner, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 814-322-2563.

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.
