Today, we became aware of an additional positive case of COVID-19 within our student body and started the contact tracing procedures. Both cases this week involved students in our middle school. Based on our findings and in accordance with the guidance provided by the Department of Health, Meyersdale Area Middle School will be closed to students until Wednesday, November 11th. In addition, both the elementary and high school will be closed tomorrow to allow for thorough contact tracing and continued deep cleaning. SCTC students should not report to the technology center tomorrow. As we face virtual days due to safety concerns, all students and families are reminded that students must login to Canvas to access their instruction throughout the specified time period. While instruction is not necessarily held to a specific timeline, students must login to be counted as present and determine teacher instructions. Students with internet issues should contact their respective school to make them aware of the difficulties.
To provide clarity, students can complete online work through Canvas, during a school closure at any point throughout the day- morning, afternoon or evening. Our goal is to educate our students while providing flexibility to our families.
Meyersdale Area Families, Students, Faculty & Staff,
The district has been notified of a positive case of COVID-19 within our student body. The case is in the middle school and we have completed the contact tracing that goes along with the case. At this point in time, individuals who were within 6 feet of the student for greater than 15 minutes have been contacted to quarantine for the required 14 days. In addition, the school undergoes a deep cleaning process regularly. School will be in session tomorrow, Wednesday, November 4th. Thank you and have a good evening.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 20th, Meyersdale Elementary and Middle School students will attend school in person and participate in a regular school day. Meyersdale Area High School students should not report to school and should continue to complete course work virtually. Somerset County Technology Center students should not report to the technology center in person and should also complete their course work online. Again, tomorrow, the Meyersdale Elementary and Middle school students will report to school in person unless they are ill or have an elevated temperature and Meyersdale High School students will complete work virtually and not attend school in person.
In Meyersdale Area School District, the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. With the recently elevated discussion regarding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the news, we want to take a moment to reinforce preventive safety measures and reference our process and communications.
