    To submit a listing for the Poland Community Virtual Backpack, please click here and fill out the form.

    School officials frequently receive requests from a variety of community groups and organizations to distribute information about events, activities and programs that may be of interest to district children and their families, and we are now gathering that information here in the Poland Community Virtual Backpack.

    The Virtual Backpack is designed to communicate helpful information about these events and activities to the community while also saving resources by posting the listings on our website and Facebook instead of on printed handouts.

    If you have any questions, please send an email to backerman@herkimer-boces.org.

    Thank you for your cooperation and your interest in providing information to our school community.
