Dear students and families,
This week marks another stage of our truly unusual year. Teachers and staff will be in the buildings packing up our students’ personal possessions. On Thursday the 14th, families can pick up these items in the school bus loops. UPK through grade 5 will be at the Elementary School. Grades 6 through 12 will be at the High School. Please stay in your car. A staff member will bring the bagged items out to you.
How strange it will be to miss the end-of-year locker cleaning rituals. It occurs to me as the spring progresses, that I feel the absence of small rituals and rites-of-passage as acutely as the large ones. I regret not seeing our District musicians perform spring concerts but I also regret not hearing the Singing Silhouettes rehearsing in the front foyer in Friday mornings.
I want to assure you again that our entire team will continue working to provide the best education we can for our students, to honor as many of our District rituals as possible – be they big or small, and above all, we will continue to work to keep our educational community safe.
Byron-Bergen Central School District Superintendent
