A Message From Dr. Michael Stauffer

Good Afternoon,

This message is to remind BCTC students and their parents that the first day of school for all students is tomorrow, Tuesday, August 24, 2021.  We realize that some of our 16 sending school districts have not opened for the school year; however, all BCTC students are expected to follow our schedule for attendance at BCTC unless the sending district has planned activities that have been communicated in advance to the students. Bus transportation will be provided both to and from BCTC and your sending school at the regularly scheduled time.

At this time, BCTC is requiring the universal masking of all students, staff, volunteers, and visitors due to Berks County being identified as “High” transmission per CDC data. The health, safety, and welfare of our students is a top priority and as a hub for 16 of our school districts across the county we feel it is necessary to add this additional preventative strategy. We are monitoring the pandemic and its evolution through Berks County and are continually evaluating the effectiveness of our Health and Safety Plan and will make adjustments as needed. Any changes made to our Health and Safety Plan will be communicated to the students, families, and staff of BCTC.

The BCTC staff looks forward to seeing your son or daughter tomorrow, Tuesday, August 24, 2021, as we embark on an exciting new school year.

We wish each of you a healthy and exciting 2021-2022 school year!

Thank you!
