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.

To all the Byron-Bergen Bees’ Families,

I would like to take a moment to share how proud I am to be Superintendent at this exceptional District. Although our schools are closed, our faculty and staff are eager to support our students and the community in any way we can.

I especially would like to mention our School Cafeteria Lunch Manager, Mary Dellapenna and the cafeteria staff who, beginning today, are distributing two daily meals for pickup in the High School bus loop. I thank them for providing this vital service to our community. More information on meal distribution is available on the website.

Dear Byron-Bergen Bees’ Families,

Over the past few days our teachers and staff have been working diligently to develop Instructional packets for our students in order to provide a continuity of instruction. The goal of these packets is to provide materials in which students can review previous instruction.

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

February 2019

As you may have heard, there are four confirmed cases of measles in Monroe County. This disease is very contagious and we understand that parents could be concerned. Many in our community have never encountered this disease before, so we wanted to share some general information provided by the Center for Disease Control.

More information is available on the Center for Disease Control website at: https://www.cdc.gov/measles

September 2018: Be your very best self.

September is here and it is my pleasure to welcome all the Byron-Bergen students and families to the 2018-2019 school year. This fall, we are very excited to launch the District’s new Core Values:
  •       Be Respectful,
  •       Be Accountable,
  •       Be Responsible,
  •       Be Your Very Best Self.

These four values epitomize what is best about our Byron-Bergen community. The Core Values are posted prominently around both schools as a reminder, for all of us, to constantly strive to be our very best selves. I look forward to seeing how great we can be, together.

October 2017: Focusing on the student

The school year is well underway and the students and staff have hit the ground running. Each and every year we aim to encourage students to achieve their best in academics and extracurricular activities. This year is no different. Throughout the school year we will increase our focus on nurturing the further growth of students.

Students will be encouraged to set goals for themselves and challenged to set the bar even higher. Whether it is taking an advanced placement course, trying a new instrument, or acting on their athletic pursuits, students should set new higher goals for themselves. By providing students with a variety of opportunities to explore academic and extracurricular interests, Byron-Bergen Central School District will continue to develop intelligent, well-rounded students, ready for the future.

September 2017: Welcome Back to School!

The summer months are always a busy time for district staff, and this summer was no exception. To prepare for the new academic year, school buildings were cleaned thoroughly, buses were inspected, new employees were hired, teachers and other employees participated in professional development, and repairs were made to both buildings.

There are many reasons to be proud of our schools. Our students continue to excel in every arena: in the classroom, on the athletic field, in the performing arts, and through extracurricular activities. Our employees are highly qualified professionals who care deeply about the success of children, and the tremendous support from our parents, volunteers, and community partners makes our schools even better.
