Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!
I do have some news to report......below in italics is a part of a message from the Secretary of Education regarding when we are planning to return to school:
.........the Department of Education (PDE) announced today all schools in the commonwealth will remain closed through at least April 6 as a result of the COVID-19 response efforts. The closure order could be extended beyond April 6 if necessary to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19.
Under the new timeline, school buildings would reopen on April 7 for two days to allow school administrators, teachers and other staff time to prepare classrooms, set up cafeterias, schedule transportation and arrange other business operations. Students would return to school on April 9, unless extending the closure is needed in response to the situation with the virus at that time.
My recommendation is that we all keep doing what we have been doing to thrive during this challenging time! As we get closer to the 9th, I am sure we will be getting more directives from the Sec. of Education/Governor.
The teachers will continue to communicate with you each day, I will continue to send you a daily email to let you know what I know. As to ANY information beyond our return on the 9th, no other decisions have been made at this time.
Stay healthy and positive!
