Updated March 25, 2020
On Friday, March 13, 2020, students, parents, and guardians received correspondence from the District regarding closure of Allegheny County Schools. Within an hour of sending that message to our families, Governor Wolf ordered a state-wide closure of schools. The Governor's mandated closure altered the District's plan. Guidance from the Department of Education and Governor's office is reflected in our student expectations outlined below.
Understandably, your expectations as parents and guardians may be different. Please know that these expectations may change as this situation changes.
Expectations for Students:
Students are not to be on District property during the closure.
Students are not required to complete assignments during the closure.
Students may choose to take advantage of the educational resources (and we encourage them to do so) provided by their teachers/grade level to reinforce previously learned concepts, and/or when applicable, prepare for national exams related to their coursework, such as Advanced Placement preparation.
