Superintendent's Message

Berne Union Community

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I want to thank everyone for their support and understanding for the past several months. It is great to come to school again and see our students hard at work preparing for their fall activities. As the country begins to reopen, we have high hopes that we can do the same in August. The district leadership team is looking at several options for the fall. We are waiting on guidance from the Ohio department of education, CDC and the governor’s office to ensure that we provide a safe learning environment. As soon as the plan is developed, we will share it with the community.

Have a great summer!!

Parent Update
As those of you who follow Governor Dewine’s updates are aware, things are changing daily. In looking at our current situation with the “stay at home” order it looks unlikely that we will be headed back to the brick and mortar we call school anytime soon. With this in mind, our school team has been busy preparing learning opportunities to keep our students engaged from the home environment. We are making plans to transition from our extended spring break to an alternative learning model that will include online learning as well as paper packet learning.
