  • February Break Plans

    February 8, 2021   Dear BHRSD Families and Staff, As February break approaches and you consider travel, I would like you to carefully decide if this is the safest choice.  The bottom line right now is traveling presents a risk, even in the United States.  We know how easily this virus is spread and our entire collective goal is to keep the entire school community healthy, safe and to continue our in-person school option. In the event you do choose to travel, let me remind you of the state’s travel guidance.  The state is requiring all visitors entering Massachusetts, including […]

My decision is informed by a weekly consultation with a Health […]

  • COVID-19 Update

    November 12, 2020 Dear BHRSD Community, I’m writing with a brief update on our schools in relation to COVID-19. As we approach Thanksgiving and the Holidays and as COVID-19 surges nationally and likely locally, we need to be especially vigilant and realize that our individual actions impact our community as a whole. Berkshire County and our schools have carefully followed guidance on hand washing, mask wearing, and social distancing.  By and large our shared efforts have really paid off and as a community we have had a very low infection and transmission rate.  Thank you all so much for your […]
