On Friday evening, July 3, a small fire damaged the Berkeley Unified District Office building at 2020 Bonar St. There were no injuries. Berkeley Fire Department extinguished the fire.
The District Office is temporarily closed while necessary inspections, cleanup, and repair work take place. Most of the damage was to the building’s exterior, but the Admissions Office incurred some interior damage. As a result, this will delay plans to re-open this office to the community.
Admissions services will continue. Families will find Admissions information online at https://www.berkeleyschools.net/departments/berkeley-school-admissions/ and may contact Admissions staff at: firstname.lastname@example.org
