Unlike other regional districts, the Berkshire Hills Regional School District says it does not plan to revert to entirely remote learning in the weeks after Thanksgiving.
The district – which represents Great Barrington, Stockbridge and West Stockbridge – has three schools and around 1200 students. Superintendent Peter Dillon says the in week after the holiday, elementary school students will continue in-person education, with all middle and high school students except those with higher needs continuing to work remotely.
“Our 3rd and 4th graders are in two days a week and they’re working remotely three days a week, and our initial plan is to bring them back – the 3rd and 4th graders – to being in four days a week starting on December 7th,” he told WAMC.
Pittsfield has suspended in-person education at least until December while Lenox is remote through mid-January.
