Due to the COVID-19 crisis taking place in our country, extraordinary measures and flexibility will need to occur from everyone as we move to educate our students in a non-traditional format. On Monday, March 30, 2020, the PENNCREST School District will implement a Continuity of Education Plan. Planned instruction will occur virtually for our secondary students and via deliverables or packets for our youngest students. Please know that we are taking direction from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and their directives may change due to the fluidity of the crisis or new legislative mandates.
We recognize there are several questions related to the school events that would normally occur during this time of the year. Those events, like kindergarten registration, graduation, prom, annual field trips, athletics, and other ceremonies will be decided based on recommendations from public health experts. All decisions regarding these events will be determined and then communicated to you by school principals. We recognize this impact on our students and especially our Seniors. We believe that a successful implementation and student participation in the CEP will permit us to graduate our Seniors on June 5, 2020 and end school as scheduled on June 9, 2020.
