Masks Will Continue to be Required at Red Land and Allen

Message sent February 7, 2022
 
Good afternoon West Shore families and staff,
 
Currently, the 14-day active COVID case counts remain above the masking threshold at Red Land High School and Allen Middle School. As a result, masks will continue to be required at both schools. 
 
What happens now:
 
  • District administration will continue to monitor COVID cases and reevaluate the masking requirement on February 12.
     
  • If the 14-day active COVID case count moves below the masking threshold at that time, masks will be optional.
      
  • If the 14-day active COVID case count remains at, or above, the masking threshold at that time, masks will be required for an additional 5 calendar days and reevaluated at that time.

  • Based on feedback we have received, families and staff will only be notified when there is a change in masking status. As noted above, this will not change the way we are evaluating conditions.
 
The District's COVID-19 Tracker provides data on active cases, quarantine numbers, mask status, and masking timelines for each school. The tracker may be viewed at: https://www.wssd.k12.pa.us/COVID19Tracker2122.aspx
 
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me directly or to call your child’s school. 
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Todd B. Stoltz, Ed.D.

Good afternoon Allen and Red Land families and staff,
 
Currently, the 14-day active COVID case counts at Allen Middle School and Red Land High School remain above the masking threshold and will remain above the threshold through the weekend. As a result, masks will be required for an additional 5 calendar days (January 24-28) at both schools. 
 
On January 28, cases will be reevaluated again, with the potential for an additional 5 days of masking at that time.  
 
What happens now:
  • Masks will be required during the school day.
  • Mask breaks will be provided when students are outdoors, engaged in physical activity, and while eating.
  • Masks will not be required for events or activities occurring outside normal school hours.
  • Masks will continue to be required when riding school transportation, as per the CDC Order for public transportation. 
  • Existing mask exemptions will be honored. 
  • Refusal to wear a mask will result in a student being sent home. 
 
 What happens next:
Families will continue to receive email updates on the status of this mitigation effort. Additionally, the District's COVID-19 Tracker provides data on active cases, quarantine numbers, and current masking requirements.
