2021-2022 Health and Safety Plan

On Thursday, July 15, 2021, the Board approved a Health and Safety plan for the 2021-2022 school year. Our Plan, available below, was drafted on the following expectations:

  • All schools will be open for in-person instruction five (5) days a week.
  • Staff and students will not be required to wear face masks while at school.
  • Staff and students will be required to wear a face mask while riding school transportation in alignment with a federal CDC mandate regarding public transportation.
  • Individuals who wish to wear face masks as a mitigation measure will be permitted to do so – but that will be their personal choice.
  • Staff and students will not be required to be vaccinated in order to work at or attend our schools.
  • We will offer both full-time and blended virtual learning options through our ExCEL Virtual Learning Academy.

PSERS' Foundations for Your Future Seminars
The Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) holds Foundations for Your Future (FFYF) seminars throughout the area.  These FFYF seminars provide active members with information about PSERS benefits and services.  A PSERS Retirement Counselor will cover topics such as benefit options, withdrawal of contributions, rollovers, taxes, and legislative actions affecting PSERS.  PSERS recommends that all active members attend an FFYF seminar, particularly if you are planning on retiring within the year.

Staff and the Media

NEWS MEDIA: Employees of the District should contact Mrs. Rhonda Fourhman, Coordinator of Community Relations, and their principal/supervisor if they are asked by a reporter to speak about District events or initiatives in which they will be identified as a staff member of the District. This should occur prior to any on or off camera interviews, statements, and photographs.  Additionally, if interested in sharing a positive story with the media, please work with Mrs. Fourhman before initiating contact with a news station. 
 
SOCIAL MEDIA: We recognize that many of our employees are active social media users. As a school district, we also incorporate social media as part of our communications strategy. The lines between public and private, personal and professional, are blurred online. Staff are asked to carefully consider what they post online and how it may be perceived.
