Letter about A.W. Becker sign

Dear A.W. Becker Families,

I want to provide an update to you concerning the electronic sign that was located in front of the elementary school. As a reminder, the sign was not in compliance with zoning laws in the Town of Bethlehem and it has therefore been removed. The District is in the process of designing and applying
for a building permit for a replacement sign. If approved, this new sign will colorfully identify A.W. Becker Elementary, allowing our families and the community to easily find our school. We will update you as we make progress on this endeavor.

As a solution for the electronic sign, the RCS Board of Education voted to donate it to the Village of Ravena. This repurposing will relocate that sign to the front of the Ravena Village Offices, which also houses the RCS District Offices. Both the District and the Village will place messages on the
sign. Although we are disappointed in not being able to use the electronic sign at Becker, we are grateful that we will still be able to share important information about our program with families and the greater RCS community.

Brian Bailey, Ed.D.
