Good afternoon Governor Mifflin families,

I am sending you this brief update to acknowledge that our district is aware of the information provided by Governor Tom Wolf this afternoon, which included recommendations for Pennsylvanians to avoid large gatherings and out-of-state travel. As part of an immediate plan of action, we are cancelling the following events this evening:

  • Leap into Literacy
  • Brecknock Elementary Family Night

Later this afternoon, all county superintendents will be meeting to discuss this latest information. Also, as previously planned, our district administrators will be meeting tomorrow morning and joining a statewide call with PA Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera. Through that call, we anticipate more direct information pertaining to schools. By the end of the day Friday, I will update you on these latest meetings and developments. 

As of the time of this latest email, there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Berks County. We appreciate your support as we work to continually update our response and we will be back in touch with you tomorrow.


Dr. Steve Gerhard
Superintendent, Governor Mifflin School District
