Superintendent - Letter to Community

  • Jacob Reimer Portrait

    Dear Barker Learning Community,

    We are extremely excited for the remainder of the 20-21 school year as we continue to bring back as many kids as we can for more in-person in a safe manner within the ever-changing guidance from New York State. To say that getting to this point was a challenge is an understatement. However, here we are, continuing to provide the greatest education possible for our kids. We thank all of the community for your continued support.

    As we continue to look forward to the 21-22 school year, we are well into planning for a full return to school with all of our kids starting in September. It is our intention to return to as close to normal as possible starting in the fall. However, as has been the case since this pandemic started more than 14 months ago, things will likely change many times before we return in September. With this in mind, please be assured that we will communicate necessary and important information to you as it becomes applicable and timely via automated phone calls, and we will also continue to post various updates on our district website. These are the two most efficient ways for us to communicate with our learning community. Our goal is to inform you as soon as we can once we have completed information to pass along.

    As we wrap up our 20-21 school year, we again want to thank the entire greater Barker community for supporting each of our students and their learning this past year. All of our students have persevered through these unprecedented times together and will become much stronger in the end. We are so proud of their accomplishments and we look forward to another successful school year next year.



    Mr. Jacob Reimer
