Monday Message from Superintendent Edwards - Memorial Day, 2020

Dear Byron-Bergen students and families,

This Memorial Day, I want to share a message of gratitude. This is a day in which we honor those who lost their lives protecting our country. In addition to those who served in our military forces, this year I would also like to acknowledge the health care workers and emergency responders lost on the front line of the pandemic. As a former U.S. Marine, I would like to thank them for their service to our country.

Speaking of our first responders, the Byron Rescue Squad will be collecting non-perishable food in the High School parking lot on Friday, May 29th from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. All food collected will be given to the Salvation Army in Batavia for distribution. As a member of this community, I would like to thank our first responders for the many ways they support our families and neighbors.

It is a difficult time, but I am encouraged by the unwavering dedication of our teachers and staff and their determination to keep their students engaged and learning. I am humbled by the generosity of our community members who are always ready to help those in need. And I am inspired by our students who have demonstrated unmeasurable resiliency in the wake of an event which has changed us all forever. As the Superintendent of Byron-Bergen Central School District, I thank you all.

As always, stay safe and take care of each other.

Mickey Edwards
Byron-Bergen Central School District Superintendent
