November 9, 2020 - Letter to the Community

The Port Allegany School District administration has been notified that one student in our high school has tested positive for COVID-19.

Through our contact tracing protocol, we have already identified and notified all staff and families whose students have likely had close contact with the individual who tested positive. If you were not directly contacted by the school district, your child has not had close contact with the individual who tested positive.

The student who tested positive for COVID-19 and anyone who had close contact with the individual will not return to the buildings until Thursday, November 19. Classes for all other students will continue on Tuesday, November 10 at their regular times.

Please take a moment to read Superintendent Gary Buchsen's compete letter to families regarding the positive COVID-19 case.

Phased School Reopening Health and Safety Plan

It is the purpose of the Port Allegany School District to promote procedures which help to safeguard individuals from the spread of communicable diseases. The most important consideration is the health and safety of students and employees. In addition to this health and safety plan, over the past two months, the District has developed additional options to provide in-person instruction, a hybrid model of in-person and remote learning, and will provide academic choices for students whose parents elect to keep them home during this pandemic even when schools are open. Please review the Phased School Reopening Health and Safety Plan for more information.
