Principal’s Message

October 9, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

You are invited to attend the Berne-Knox-Westerlo Secondary School’s Open House on Thursday, October 22, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s Open House will be done virtually. Classroom teachers will have ten minutes to discuss and share information about their program with family members.

The schedule for the Open House is below. At 6:30 p.m., you should follow your child’s schedule and meet with his or her teachers remotely. The following Open House link will bring you to where you can click on each of your child’s teachers’ individual Google Meets during the appropriate time.
Open House* (Live on Thursday, October 22, 2020, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:40p.m.) is a great opportunity for you to meet your child’s teachers and find out what your child’s school year will entail. (Note: the links will be finalized and live from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 22.)

Parents who have chosen full remote learning for their children and are considering having the children return to the building on a hybrid schedule at the beginning of the second quarter must notify us by November 10th. Students who are not scheduled to return by the beginning of the second quarter will have to wait until the end of that quarter to change from full remote.

I am looking forward to a safe and successful school year. If you have any questions, please free to contact me at any time.

Mark A. Pitterson, Ed.D
Secondary School Principal
