School Safety Forum – Rescheduled to Wed., March 21st

School safety is on all our minds lately in the wake of recent school shooting tragedies and reported threats to several of our area schools. I am writing to you at this time to invite you to participate in a School Safety Forum to be held from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. next Wednesday, March 21, in the PMHS media center.

The purposes of this forum are threefold:

  • To hear your questions and concerns about school safety in Pittsfield;
  • To share with you the emergency plans that are in place in our schools and new initiatives to increase student and staff safety; and
  • To hear your suggestions for increasing school safety.

Whether or not you are able to join the conversation next Wednesday, please be assured that we consider student and staff safety to be our highest priority and strive to ensure the greatest level of safety possible.

School District Energy Options

Last fall, a group of interested Pittsfield citizens – including both members of the public and school officials – convened to review the district’s energy needs and consider options for future energy sources.

The group recommended to the School Board that an energy audit be conducted to provide the community with current information and efficiency recommendations.  Additionally, the group recommended that a wood energy feasibility study be completed to provide specific information to supplement the energy audit.  (Cost for the audit was shared by the district and Eversource; the feasibility study was completed at no cost to the district.)

Both reports were received by the district in early summer and are now available for review on the district website (  Additionally, two community meetings have been scheduled to review the contents of the reports:

·         Energy Audit Report Meeting:  6:00 p.m., Wednesday, September 21, Pittsfield Middle High School Media Center

·         Wood Energy Feasibility Report Meeting:  6:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 19, Pittsfield Middle High School Media Center

Interested Pittsfield citizens are cordially invited to these meetings to learn more about energy and the schools and to have your energy questions answered.
