PA Travelers Order In EffectParents of Penn Delco students are reminded of the state order issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Health requiring residents who travel out of state to obtain a negative COVID-19 test result or quarantine for 14 days. The district understands that this requirement may prohibit your child from attending school in-person during our hybrid schedule while they comply, but stresses that the state order should supersede the expectation that your child attend school in-person on those days. We appreciate the efforts parents are making to keep COVID-19 outside of our school buildings. If your child is affected by this travelers order, kindly inform your school’s attendance secretary so the school will be aware that your child will be participating virtually during this period of time. A link to the state order can be found at the Pennsylvania Department of Health website.As a reminder, parents should keep their children home from school if they do not pass the daily symptom check assessment. Our success in keeping COVID-19 at bay, and PDSD schools open, relies on efforts of everyone when outside of school and work: wearing masks, avoiding group gatherings, socially distancing, avoiding out of state travel when possible. We appreciate all that everyone is doing to help us get through this regional second wave.
