COVID-19 Response and Information

UPDATES

The Federal, State and Local responses to the COVID-19 / coronavirus are very fluid.  The District is attempting to provide clear and concise information to our Community, Families and Employees.

This dedicated page will be our main method of disseminating information.  We will follow up these notifications on social media and our other messaging tools as appropriate and as dictated by the situation. Please check this page often for updates.

School Calendar

Governor Wolf's statement last Friday indicated that there will be "forgiveness" if the mandated 180 days (990 hours) are not met as a result of the COVID-19 shutdown.  What we don't know is how much time would be added to the end of the school year, or how a longer closure will impact student education for 2019-20 school year.

Extracurricular Activities

Based on CDC recommendations, we are expecting all extracurricular activities and gatherings of people to be curtailed significantly into the future and perhaps through the end of the 2019-20 school year.
