A Note about Public Health Concerns: COVID-19
Whenever public health concerns garner widespread attention (such as COVID-19) schools are often asked if special measures are needed. Our district’s response to public health emergencies is based on following guidance or directives issued from public health agencies such as the PA Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Best Practices for Reducing the Spread of Illness
Cover coughs and sneezes
Wash hands often and thoroughly
Avoid sharing eating utensils and cups/bottles
Clean all “high touch” surfaces daily
Monitor your symptoms
If your child is displaying symptoms of an illness, contact your primary care provider and keep your child at home. Absences from school due to illness are considered excused.
