Parent Choice Update August 18, 2020

On Monday, August 17 PDE updated face-covering guidance for schools. With this new guidance the PA Dept. of Health "is requiring students to wear face coverings at all times while in school, even when six feet of social distancing can be achieved."  

The Port Allegany School District understands that this may impact the choice your family has made to return to school or the decision to choose the online options provided by the district.  

If your choice has not changed. You do not need to do anything.  

If your choice has changed with this new face-covering requirement, please complete the Google form or call the elementary or high school office.

We would ask that any parent considering our online options to commit for at least the first nine weeks to the program. After the first quarter, we will permit families to re-evaluate their choice.  

This will allow us to update our class rosters as we prepare for the start of the school year. Our first day of classes with students continues to be set for Wednesday, August 26 at the regular time.
