There are many exciting things taking place at Hoosac Valley High School, and the #HVHSFAMILY has worked hard this year to focus on a more positive climate and culture, recognizing the Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, and Empathy it takes to build a community. More importantly we recognize that there are many global issues within our communities that impact our students, impact our teachers and staff, and impact our families in some not-so-positive ways. One issue impacting our students' education is the misuse of social media in its many forms. Therefore, we are organizing a Community Forum that encompasses all Northern Berkshire Schools, the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition, State and Local Police -- including Northern Berkshire Juvenile Court and Probation, Community Stakeholders, Health Providers, Business Owners, and Families in an effort to start the conversation.
This proposed JOINT Community Forum is tentatively planned for March 2019, and initial meetings are underway, but we plan to join forces to give these issues a voice and show our support for each other so we can all educate our students in the best way possible.
