Dear  Families, 

As we approach the holidays, we anticipate school cancellations due to inclement weather during the winter months. 

As you may know, the state has introduced a snow day pilot program which allows districts to go remote in response to inclement weather/closings. Districts have the option to implement remote learning on days that would otherwise be a snow day for the 2020-21 school year. 

Berlin CSD will not be participating in the state’s snow day pilot program. In the coming months, we will be implementing snow days as we have in years past. We see the value in our students experiencing a traditional snow day, and we aim to salvage any sense of normalcy possible during this unprecedented school year. 

School closures and two-hour delays will be communicated via SchoolMessenger, the BCSD website, the BCSD Facebook page and local news stations.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Stay safe and be well. 

Sincerely,

Dr. Stephen Young
Berlin CSD Superintendent
