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.
The cold and flu season continues to linger and we are experiencing a normal number of cases of students who are absent for seasonal influenza, coughs, colds and viruses. In light of the recent news and the communications by the federal and state government(s) regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the District believes this is an appropriate time to re-share proactive measures that all families can take to keep each other healthy in the event the virus would impact our communities.
Responding to the 2020 Census is an easy, safe, and important way to help provide resources for children and their communities for the next 10 years.
