Good evening everyone. I just wanted to remind you that there will not be any school on Friday, as we have a school in service day scheduled, nor on Monday, which is Labor Day. We will resume our normal schedule on Tuesday, September 7th. Tomorrow is a regular school day. Enjoy the long weekend. Jim

We are looking forward to our first school day the 2021-2022 School year tomorrow morning. Breakfast will be from 8:05-8:55. Temperatures will be taken upon entry to the building and all students and staff will be required to wear masks for the first two weeks of school. K-5th grade will eat lunch in their classroom. Grades 6-12 will be eating in the cafeteria. This arrangement will pretty much separate those 11 years old and under from the 12 and older who are likely to have been vaccinated. ( There is no vaccination available for those under 12 at this time). There will be no open gym at this time. We are looking forward to seeing all of our students tomorrow!!

I don't know if this message went out a moment ago, as AI did not have an Interntet connection and nothing showed up as being sent. Sooo, here goes. Monday will be the first day of work for all staff. It is building inservice day and is your opportunity to start preparing for the upcoming school year. It is also a good time for those of your who have not finished your Safe Schools coursed, to do so. We will have a staff meeting at 2:30 and go over the upcoming week and other items of importance. For the first two weeks of school, all students and staff will be required to wear masks whenever in the school building. Just a heads up. Please pass the word about our staff start work day to others who may not have access to the this communications. Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday! :)

On Monday, May 10, 2021, the FDA approved the authorization of the Pfizer Vaccine for students aged 12-15, now allowing all individuals 12 and up to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine if they wish. The CDC formally approved the Pfizer Vaccine for 12 and up today as expected. This will begin to move us further towards our school reopening efforts for next year, as well as allow more communities to reach that 80% mark for further reopening of our region. Teams from NSHC will be put together Thursday, May 13 and be ready to begin administering shots on Friday, May 14, 2021. As stated before, I have approved teams from NSHC to come into the schools and provide shots as necessary. Attached are links to the Pfizer Vaccination Consent Form for parents and the EUA referenced on the form. If you would like for your child to receive the vaccination at the school, please complete this form and return it to your school office by Friday, May 14, 2021. The Bering Strait School District highly recommends all eligible students and community members get the vaccine to assist in our efforts of keeping all our students, staff, and communities safe.

Good afternoon everyone. The District has a new communication application that enables us to communicate directly with all students and staff with a message in several ways(Facebook, Twitter, email, Live Feed and text). So, here goes my first attempt to use this app to reach you. We will be on our yellow schedule next week. “B” group will come to school on Monday and Tuesday. “A” group will attend on Wednesday and Thursday. Students will be dismissed at 1:30. Friday is a deep cleaning and a preparation day for the staff. The plan for the week of the 22nd is to be back on our “green “ schedule, with all of our students in attendance. I will post the A/B schedule shortly. It is the same as we used earlier in the year, Of course, all of the above depends on our having no additional Coronavirus cases in the village. Jim
