Northern Berkshire School Union Opening As Hybrid
The four schools in the Northern Berkshire School Union are moving forward with in-person learning — or as least as much as possible.
The small schools of Gabriel Abbott Memorial in Florida, Emma Miller in Savoy and Rowe Elementary will open students back in the classroom on Sept. 8; Clarksburg Elementary will begin the school year on Sept. 14 with a hybrid model.
Superintendent John Franzoni said the votes taken by each school committee were unanimous in support of their plans.
The size of the smaller schools made officials confident they could safely bring children and teachers back into the school buildings. Savoy has about 58 children in Grades K-5, Florida less than 100 in K-8, and Rowe about 60 in preK-6.
The number of cases for COVID-19 remain low in Berkshire County, with about 630 positive cases identified since March.
