Today we were made aware of a positive COVID case involving an
individual in our Middle School. The positive individual was last
present on our school campus Friday, May 14th. Contact tracing has
been completed. At this time, all schools in the District will be in
session for students tomorrow.
In an effort to maintain a safe learning environment for students, faculty, and staff, please contact our school nurse if your child has been in contact with or has had COVID-19 during the time we have been on remote learning or during the holiday break. We would appreciate full transparency of recent illness to maintain a safe environment. We also request honesty in regard to out of state travel. Upon return to school, only approved cloth face masks and approved plastic face shields that cover the nose and mouth, extends below the chin and to the ears, and leaves no exposed gap between the forehead and the shield’s headpiece are acceptable. The nurse can be reached via email email@example.com or 814-634-8311 ext 308. Thank you.

Meyersdale Area School Community,
This week, the Meyersdale Area School Board voted to return to a regular face-to-face schedule beginning Monday, January 11th. However, due to current COVID cases in the district, we will only be returning in a HYBRID SCHEDULE. Next week, High School and Middle School will be in school Monday and Wednesday and Elementary will be in school Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Students will be working virtually when they are not in school.
SCTC students will begin regular face-to-face instruction at the technology center beginning Monday, January 11th. The SCTC schedule, including transportation, will remain the same Monday through Friday.
All extra-curricular activities will resume on Monday.
As of today, all students will resume full-time face-to-face instruction on Monday, January 18th. Although this had previously been scheduled as an Act 80 day, students will be in session on this date. Please look for additional information as we get closer to that date.
Based on the rising concerns with COVID-19 in our area, the Meyersdale Area School District will remain in a virtual learning environment for the remainder of the month and into January with a tentative return date of January 11th. This decision will be reviewed at the January 6th board meeting.
During this time frame, there will be no extra-curricular activities and SCTC students will be participating in a virtual format.
Free breakfasts and lunches will be delivered at 6 locations on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays while virtual. Please visit the District website’s Virtual Meal Order Form, the District Facebook Page, or contact the Cafeteria for more information.
Nurse-Although students will not be in the school building, we would appreciate knowing if your child is required to be isolating or quarantining. This information will help our nurse understand our level of community spread as well as help our teachers to know who is too ill to be completing assignments. Please call the school nurse to keep us updated.
