Monday Message from Superintendent Edwards - March 30, 2020

To our Byron-Bergen Bees families,

It has been two weeks since we closed our doors to students. It has been hard, but I’m happy to say that a lot of positive has happened in that time. Our meal distribution plan is up and running. I am proud to be part of the team handing out food on distribution days. We are running a skeleton crew at the schools, so everyone is doing their part.

Our teachers have been hard at work providing learning materials and resources to our families as well as reaching out to see how their students are handling this upheaval. Mrs. Voos, the Elementary School Counselor, has created a newsletter called The Calming Corner to help our younger students with the social emotional side of social distancing. Our High School Counseling team is very active on social media, encouraging our older students to reach out of they are having a difficult time or just need someone to talk to.

A message from the NYS SED and the NYS DOH

Good morning,
I would like to share this message from the Commissioners of the New York State Departments of Health and Education regarding the 2019 Novel (new) Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). According to their report, "At this time, there are no cases in New York State. The risk to residents and students is low. At this time of the year, there are many possible causes for respiratory illness. Therefore, there is no need to cancel school or social events, and there is no need for students or school staff to wear surgical masks at school."
 
In accordance with their recommendations, we are not altering plans for school activities or events. However, as we do every flu season, we encourage all of our community members to wash their hands frequently throughout the day to reduce the spread of cold and flu germs. Our school nurses also urge everyone to drink plenty of water as studies have shown that staying well hydrated helps reduce risk of illness. 
 
We will keep our community informed if there are any further developments.
Sincerely,
Mickey Edwards
