BBRSD Crisis Management Plan

We continue to work with our public safety partners to provide the safest possible environment for our students. We met again with law enforcement and fire department leaders from Berlin and Boylston this past week to continue identifying areas where we can improve school safety in all three buildings while updating and improving our crisis management plans.


The number one priority of the BBRSD is your student's safety.

For those of you with children at Tahanto, you know we are piloting a Chromebook insurance program through the company School Device Coverage. As promised I wanted to get some early feedback about the plan so I have created a very short survey that can be found here. I am hoping that parents that chose not to participate will also take the survey as we are looking for feedback as to why you chose not to participate.


A final question is also an open-ended place for comments, so if you wanted to add your feedback that would be a good place to do so. We plan to seek additional feedback near the end of the year after some of you may have had to deal with a claim for damage, but if that does happen and you would like to share that information, positive or negative before we put the second survey out please reach out to me via email. Thank you in advance to those that take the time to respond. Your feedback will help guide our decision-making process around this topic.
