Communication Plan for COVID-19 Cases in schools:

A reminder that the district has a communication plan in place to notify staff and families when we have individuals in our school buildings who have tested positive for COVID-19. Please know that if your student is identified as a “close contact” of a confirmed positive COVID-19 case through our contact tracing, you will be notified by the school district with clear instructions on next steps. If you do not receive a direct communication regarding this, then the PA DOH does not consider your student to be a “close contact” or at risk of exposure to the confirmed positive case. In the spirit of being transparent during this pandemic, the district will send home a letter to the families and staff of those attending the impacted building so all families have the pertinent information related to the health/safety of the school. In addition, if at some point the district needs to close a school for a brief period of time based on the recommendations of the PA Department of Health, a communication from the Superintendent, as well as follow-up communication from principals with instructions, would be sent to all families.
