Emergency Communication Information

  • In the event of inclement weather closings, delays and modified schedules, please refer to your home school to find out if your child should expect to attend BCTC. 

    Berks Career & Technology Center will report full day school closings due to snow or weather on radio & TV stations as well as online. 

    Other Communications

    Berks Career & Technology Center also has a telephone broadcast system that enables school personnel to notify households and parents by phone of general announcements or reminders. This service is provided by SchoolMessenger, which specializes in school-to-parent communications.

    When used, the service will simultaneously call all listed phone numbers in our parent contact list and will deliver a recorded message from the school’s principal or another school administrator. The service will deliver the message to both live answer and answering machines. No answers and busies will be automatically retried twice in 15 minute intervals after the initial call.

    Please do not expect to receive notice of early dismissals, closings or late starts due to weather via the telephone. Defer to your home school's communications in the event of mid-day weather concerns.
