The NSAA is still staying at “Orange Level”, which is still 25% capacity; the only change was that grandparents can now attend. We haven’t yet moved to “Yellow” and 50% capacities, like what the Governor and DHM’s put out. We will keep you updated as new information arises. Thanks to all for your patience and cooperation.
Because of Covid-19 and mandated distancing policies, many traditional ceremonies and activities have been cancelled across the nation. One such tradition at Bertrand High School was started in 2008 with Dr. Dennis Shipp. Dr. Shipp believes that academic excellence is of utmost importance and that the hard work and achievement of the students at Bertrand High School should be recognized. Upon his arrival as Superintendent of Bertrand Community School, he established the Academic Banquet. This banquet honors those students who demonstrate academic excellence in the classroom based on their GPA. On his departure from Bertrand, Dr. Shipp wanted to reach out one more time to publicly give recognition to those high achieving students and all that they have accomplished.
Please take time to watch the video posted below and help Dr. Shipp honor those students who have worked extremely hard to earn academic excellence.

We are currently working with Striv.TV and are in the process of setting up the equipment and getting the Bertrand Striv Channel set up. We hope to have everything up and running by next week. Thank you for your patience while we are making this transition to what we feel will hopefully be a better product/service.
