IMPORTANT VIRUTAL INFORMATION:

  • Now that the COVID-19 vaccine has become readily available to many high-risk individuals as well as our teachers, many of our committed virtual students have returned for in-person instruction. Due to this, only a few classrooms remain connected to students at home each day. We will keep our live streaming technology available; however, we must be given 24 hours notice of students on quarantine so that equipment can be set up. Keep in mind that virtual should now only be used for quarantining. If your child is vacationing, enjoy the family time. If your child is sick, let them rest. We look forward to having all our students return to school for in-person instruction in the near future as COVID-19 numbers continue to decrease.

 

 

UPDATED COVID PROTOCOLS 2-25-21:

  • We will be following the CDC and PA Department of Health new reduced quarantine recommendations as follows:

    • Positive or Presumptive for COVID-19...

      • Isolate from school for 10 days and may return with clearance from a physician​

      • Immediate family member of your household is positive or presumptive positive...

    • Quarantine until COVID-19 results are received for presumptive positive​

      • Quarantine for 20 days​ if household member's test is COVID-19 positive and may return without symptoms and without testing​​

      • Quarantine for 17 days if household member's test is COVID-19 positive and may return without symptoms and with a negative test after day 15.​​

      • A sick individual is contagious for 10 days. When you live with the COVID-19 positive person, you must quarantine for their duration (10 days) and then you must begin your own 10 day quarantine because you can contract the virus from your household member up until day 10 of their illness. This only applies if you do not have any symptoms of COVID-19 by Day 10. If symptoms begin sooner, then see above "Positive for COVID-19".

    • Student/Staff is identified as a "Close Contact"...

      • Quarantine for ​10 days and may return without symptoms and without testing

      • Quarantine for 7 days and may return without symptoms and with a negative test result after day 5

    • Family member is identified as a "Close Contact"...

      • As an extra layer of caution, we have asked that when a family member is identified as a close contact that our SACS students stay home as well. We recognize that this can be a hardship for many families that are working. We also realize that there are many factors involved and that every situation is different. Our preference is that our SACS students stay home if the family member was within 6ft, possibly unmasked, and/or experiencing symptoms. Please email Mrs. Salmon with your particular situation. We will make these quarantine decisions on a case-by-case basis.

    • Travel to any state for longer than 24 hours...

      • Due to the governor's recent announcement, students or staff no longer need to quarantine for travel to another state. Travel to foreign countries would still require a quarantine.

    • Students or staff who already have had COVID-19​

      • Do not need to quarantine again if he/she is within 90 days of the date of clearance from COVID. ​This only applies to individuals who have been positive with COVID-19. Does not apply to presumptive positive cases. Only documented positive individuals. These individuals still need to wear masks and socially distance.

    • COVID-19 Vaccines..​

      • At this time​, the vaccine has now been made available to all PA teachers and staff. While not mandatory, receiving the vaccine is highly encouraged. Those wishing to be vaccinated will be inoculated next week.

  • When in doubt, please email Mrs. Salmon for clarification on the protocol for your particular situation.​

  • Our staff remains committed to allowing the virtual learning option whether it is necessary for a quarantine or chosen for a longer duration. We want to be able to make toggling back and forth as easy as possible for both families and teachers. If you are considering either a short or long term stint on virtual learning, we ask that you fill out the following form prior to beginning virtual learning. This will help us prepare work, send home materials, and allow for students to prepare a proper learning set-up in the home. While we will continue to offer this option, we hope to remind families that choosing virtual should not be a day-to-day decision. We need time to properly prepare for both virtual learning and a transition back into the classroom environment. We thank you for your cooperation.
