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.
Byron-Bergen Central School District Superintendent
