Return to School

Berwick Academy is actively planning for a return to on-campus learning for students this fall.
Find resources and our Return to School Plan below.

Current Level of Alert

Updated on Monday, August 31, 2020

Dear Berwick Parents, 

The full faculty arrived on campus this week as we continue to prepare for the start of school next Wednesday. It is impossible to describe how heartening it is to be back in our community again. The faculty have returned with new and creative ideas and a renewed focus on ensuring that, above all else, our students feel safe, included, and supported. I am grateful for the work that our faculty and staff have done and know that they welcome our students with enthusiasm. 

Opening campus this year relies heavily on a shared commitment to the health and safety of our community. To that end, we have created the Berwick Pledge. It is our expectation that all families will carefully review and sign this Pledge in myBerwick before the start of school. Students will review this Pledge in age appropriate ways in each division next week. The Pledge can be found under Berwick Resources on the right side of this page. 

Please know that on Monday, August 31, you will receive information on the Magnus Health App that will host our daily health screen. You will also receive a robust document outlining our health protocols. 

Please share the video below with your child(ren). We hope to continue to help them feel comfortable about their return and want them to know just how much we are looking forward to seeing them on Wednesday. 

As always, thank you for your support and partnership. Please feel free to reach out to me or your division director with any questions or concerns that you may have.
