The Beresford School District is committed to a safe and secure learning environment for its 700 students and 100 staff members. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our District has developed a draft of our Return to Learning Plan and Protocols for the 20-21 school year—Normal Learning, Normal Learning with Accommodations, Modified On-Campus/Hybrid Learning, Remote Learning, and Virtual Learning with Edmentum and SD Virtual School. At this time, our District’s plan is to begin the 20-21 school year as scheduled on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 with in-person delivery of instruction, “Normal Learning with Accommodations.” Our District will continue to monitor the virus and adjust plans and protocols if it becomes necessary for the safety of our students and staff. We have developed models that will allow us to switch to another method, as required by public health officials. All families should have a plan in place in the event that we must switch from one delivery model to another. These plans are subject to change as public health guidelines are updated. The academic, physical, social, and emotional well-being of our students, staff, and families are vital during these challenging times. We know our 2020-21 school year will look much different than previous years due to the new health and safety measures that will be in place. The health and safety of our students, staff, and families will continue to drive our decision-making during the 2020-21 school year. Our school board will give our District’s Return to Learning Plan and Protocols a first reading at a special board meeting on Monday, August 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the HS Library. A second reading and possible adoption will take place at the regular board meeting on Monday, August 10 at 5:30 p.m. in the HS Library. We know there is a lot of apprehension and uncertainty leading into the 20-21 school year. As a District, we do not have all of the answers. We will continue to rely on guidance from the South Dakota Department of Health, South Dakota Department of Education, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is our hope that there will be a safe COVID-19 vaccine sooner rather than later and that we can all have some type of normalcy in the near future. Thank you for taking the time to review a draft copy of our District’s Return to Learning Plan and Protocols for the 20-21 school year by clicking on the link below. https://5il.co/in3m Brian Field, Superintendent

It remains our District’s intent to have an outdoor graduation ceremony for the BHS Class of 2020 at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, at Cortland Carnes Stadium. The stage will be set up on the football field near the 50-yard line and Beresford’s sideline. Graduates will be seated in chairs located on the track. All parents, relatives, and friends will be seated in the stadium bleachers, the south aluminum bleachers, or aluminum picnic tables in the courtyard. We would ask all in attendance to do their best to spread out and socially distance as much as possible. Due to the potential of extreme temperatures, it will be an abbreviated ceremony, and there will be no commencement address. The ceremony will be around 30 minutes in length. Each graduate will cross the stage to receive his or her diploma. Each graduate will pause as a school photographer (Michelle Maas from Maas Photography) takes a picture as each graduate receives his or her diploma from our school board president Deb Bergland. Upon receiving his or her diploma, each graduate will move his or her tassel from right to left. After the ceremony, pre-packaged ice cream treats will be served to our graduates, their families, and friends near the concession stand and picnic shelter. No meal will be served as a number of graduates have planned their receptions after the graduation ceremony. Also, due to social distancing guidelines that have been set for indoors, no graduate table displays will be set up in our HS gymnasiums or lobby for public view. We would ask our graduates to meet in the staff parking lot by 1:30 p.m. to receive instructions and take pictures with their classmates. Graduates—please have your cap, gown, tassel, stole, and/or honor chords/medallions on by 1:30 p.m. The BHS Class of 2020 Outdoor Graduation Ceremony will be broadcast live and free on the NFHS Network at the following link: https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/schools/beresford-high-school-beresford-sd. We look forward to honoring our BHS Class of 2020 on Saturday, July 25, at 2:00 p.m. at Cortland Carnes Stadium!
