Berlin Central School District welcomed back “remote learners” on September 3, with a technology and material distribution day outside the elementary and middle-high school buildings.

Remote learning is one of three educational models BCSD is providing. BCSD classes—in person, remote and hybrid learning—will commence on September 10.

Berlin Middle-High School (BMHS) remote learners were able to pick up their materials and technology required for the 2020-2021 school year. Staff at BMHS, including new principal Jodi Sullivan, greeted families, provided materials, and signed out technology to prepare students for their remote classrooms.

At the Berlin Elementary School (BES), Principal Tracy Kent, along with the BES remote teaching team, welcomed remote learners and their families. Along with requested technology, the BES remote teaching team, with the help of the BES PTO, provided prepared bags for each grade level.

These bags contained materials needed to make it a successful school year for young remote learners. BES Principal Kent is excited to welcome back the students to a new year of learning.

“Although you may be learning remotely, we are one school community, and we can’t wait to see you virtually,” said Principal Kent.

If you are enrolled as a BCSD remote learner and have not picked up your technology or materials please contact your school’s main office at 518-658-1500.
