Good afternoon, Cornwall-Lebanon Families,
Yesterday, Gov. Wolf issued an order requiring public schools in counties with critical levels of COVID-19 spread to attest that they are enforcing strict health and safety rules by submitting a certification form. CLSD will submit this certification form in order to continue with in-person schooling and to permit us flexibility in our instructional models throughout the district.
At this time, our high school is operating in a fully virtual instruction model in response to the high number of active cases in that building. In reviewing our Districtwide COVID data, we are continuing to experience increasing numbers of students and staff at the high school level who are COVID positive. While most of these active cases will be removed from the data by December 1, the level of community transmission continues to rise which is likely to keep our high school numbers high even after this Thanksgiving break. Therefore, we will continue with virtual instruction at Cedar Crest High School for an additional week, through Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, at which time we will reassess the situation and communicate with you.
Students in all elementary schools and Cedar Crest Middle School will continue in their current operational model which follows mitigation strategies and guidance from our state approved Health and Safety Plan. We will continue to gather and review our Districtwide health data daily and make decisions in the best interest of students.
During the time that CCHS remains in virtual learning mode, all students are eligible to order and pick up Weekly Meals packages. Click on this link to learn more details and to order (for Dec. 1-4, 2020) by 3 PM, Friday, Nov. 27: https://bit.ly/3pUKNBw
May you and your family have a very peaceful and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
Philip Domencic, Superintendent
