Stay Health & Stay In School
Last Updated: 10/8/2020 
 
Our return to school for the 2020-2021 school year has been significantly different than in years past. The pervasive and rapidly evolving nature of COVID-19 has caused dramatic changes in how we plan for and deliver education to our children. The safety of our students, our staff, and our community have been at the forefront of our planning. Our planning throughout has been based on information from scientific literature, CDC recommendations, guidance from the PA Department Health and PA Department of Education, and parent and teacher survey responses.
 
Knowing that it is impossible to develop a plan that is favorable to all and fully understanding that our plan will change as the course of the pandemic changes, our planning will continue to be guided by the following principles:
  • We will balance the educational imperative to open our schools for in-person instruction with the public health imperative to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
  • We will provide options for parents to include both full-time in-person instruction and full-time remote instruction, as permitted by the Governor’s Orders and PDE/DOH guidance, and COVID-19 conditions in our region. 
  • We will prepare for the possibility of transitioning from in-person instruction to remote instruction in a quick and efficient manner in response to the prevalence of disease in our region.
This section of our website was designed to share information related to our return to school for the 2020-2021 school year and we will continue to update this information as we continue the year with our goal to STAY HEALTHY & STAY IN SCHOOL. We will add new information as it becomes available to assist our families and community.

Travel Alert for PT Families

The PA Health Department issues the following travel guidance: If you have traveled, or plan to travel, to an area where there are high amounts of COVID-19 cases, it is recommended that you stay at home for 14 days upon return to Pennsylvania OR have two COVID-19 tests with documented negative readings at least 48 hours apart. If you travel to a high risk state, you will need to quarantine for 14 days upon return. Click here for a list of impacted states.

If you plan to travel to any of the identified high risk areas, the District is requesting that you complete the attached form (click here to access).  Dr. Michael Fisher, our District Pandemic Coordinator, will be monitoring student travel in collaboration with our building principals and school nurses to assist in planning your child’s return to school.  As the list of high risk travel areas will likely grow in number, please check for updates in advance of your travel at https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Travelers.aspx.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
