Volunteers are still needed to assist Berkeley High School with security and fire watch during the last two weeks of the school year, which ends June 15.
Volunteers can make a major impact just by volunteering a couple hours a day, BHS officials say. Anyone who is interested can go to the Breezeway (the entrance to the G and H Building on Martin Luther King Jr. Way between Allston and Bancroft) and sign in. The safety officer will put you to work.
The Berkeley Unified School District is offering a $5,100 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person/s responsible for the B Building fire, which occurred April 12.
The special arson tip telephone number is still in operation: 510-644-8721. The Berkeley Police Department encourages anyone with information regarding the B Building fire or any of the fires at Berkeley High School to call the arson tip line. To date, all tips have been checked out by the police department, but no concrete leads have resulted.
