Barker Central School DistrictBarker, NY 14012
Each year, the Winter Edition of the Banner includes information about weather related emergencies—school closings, cancelations, delayed starts or early dismissals. Being that we live in Western New York, the likelihood that we will experience one or more weather related events that necessitate one of the above-mentioned responses is great. The latest advancements in weather forecasting technologies can provide forthcoming conditions to a specific location, but even with that degree of precision, we can experience other types of events that could not have been predicted including a power outage, water main break, etc. For whatever reason that would impact the normal operations of the school, we will continue to utilize the phone messaging system as well as the television and radio notifications. Be sure that we have your preferred phone number to contact you in the event that an emergency notification is necessary.
The winter season also means shortened hours of daylight and for many of us, means limited opportunity to be outside. So long as you need to be indoors, we invite you to spend the evening with us. Throughout the winter season, the lights are shining brightly on a number of student activities and events. On most evenings, the school hosts adult education programs, sporting events, concerts, and other celebrations of achievement to the delight of students, parents and all members of the community. We encourage you to visit the district’s website for upcoming events.
Also included in this publication is the Winter/Spring edition of the Adult Education Program. A new program offering includes Financial CPR—an opportunity to access and analyze your credit report, review FICO scores and strategies to improve your credit score. You will see a complete listing of the course offerings beginning on page 16.
Best wishes to you and your families for a happy and healthy new year.
Dr. Roger J. Klatt
