Dear Berkshire Parents and Guardians,

I want to clarify expectations regarding the newest COVID related protocols.

While I understand many of us have concerns for our students regarding the recent viral activity at school, we as a school are required to follow the guidance provided by the Agency of Education and the Vermont Department of Health.

If you choose to keep your child home, or if your child is asked to stay home we will not be providing academic materials for your child.  This has been the practice all year, and we will work to help catch your student up once they return to school. 

Offering learning materials to students who are home would not be sustainable for teachers as they are planning for in person instruction.  A teacher may be able to send along some materials for a student to use for practice, however those materials would not be considered instructional or new learning, as that will be occurring in the classroom.

I do want to point out that many students can safely attend school by choosing to use the test kits we provide as a resource to any student who was a close contact. 

If your child is exposed at school and you choose to utilize the test kits, your student can continue to attend school as long as they test negative, and are symptom free.  

If you choose not to utilize the test kits as a resource, your child can attend as long as they are symptom free. 

You should always keep your child at home if they have any symptoms and contact our nurse to determine the date they can return to school based on current guidance we are required to follow.
