April 12, 2021
Good afternoon Hillside families,
A member of the Hillside Elementary school community has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last in school on Thursday, April 8, 2021. Individuals identified as close contacts were notified by phone and may also be contacted by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH).
For your reference, the District has established a COVID-19 Tracker to share data on active cases, quarantine numbers, and total cases impacting our District. The tracker is updated daily at noon and may be viewed at:
What happens now:
  • Classrooms and affected areas will undergo any additional required sanitation and cleaning in accordance with CDC, PDE, and PA DOH guidance.
  • Unless in quarantine, isolation, or the impacted classroom; students and staff should continue to report to school on their assigned days.
  • The individual who is positive and close contacts will work remotely. The District website provides additional information and guidance for families with a child in quarantine: 
What you can do:
  • The CDC recommends you closely monitor your child for possible symptoms for the next 2 to 14 days. The CDC’s website provides a complete listing of COVID-19 symptoms and a self-checker.
  • If anyone in your household begins to exhibit symptoms, seek medical attention from a health-care provider and notify the school.  
  • Practice safety measures in and out of school, and continue to be mindful of time spent interacting with others and at what distance. The CDC’s website provides recommendations for protecting yourself and others from the virus.
Please don’t hesitate to email us directly or call the school at 717-774-1321 if you would like to discuss any concerns you have regarding this information.
