    Safe2Say Something Logo  

    On Monday, January 14, 2019, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania activated the Safe2Say Something anonymous tip line, a key component of Pennsylvania Act 44 of 2018. The tip line is operated and monitored 24/7 by the Office of the Attorney General where tips are reviewed, classified, and forwarded to the appropriate school district. Tips that are found to contain information that may indicate a "life safety" issue are also forwarded to the Somerset County 911 Center.


    Students, parents, and community members can submit tips via three methods:
    1) A free mobile application available for Apple and Android devices 
    2) By visiting www.safe2saypa.org
    3) By calling 1-844-SAF2SAY (1-844-723-2729)


    As always, we strongly encourage anyone with information relating to the safety of our schools to report these concerns immediately. Tips that are generally reported include, but are not limited to, tips regarding violence against students or facilities, tips regarding self-harm, and tips regarding substance abuse. In addition to the Safe2Say Something program, our community is reminded that any concerns can also be reported directly to a school district official and to the Meyersdale Borough Police. 

    Information is also readily available on the Safe2Say Something website www.Safe2SayPA.org.

  • 12-3-20 COVID-19 Update

    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.

  • 11-12-20 COVID-19 Update

    This evening, we received two notifications of positive cases of COVID-19 within our student body. The cases are in the high school.  To allow for a deep cleaning of the school facility and ample time for the contact tracing process, high school  students should not report to school tomorrow, Friday, November 13th. In addition, to adhere to the guidance provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Meyersdale Area High School students should not report to in-person classes until next Wednesday, November 18th. Tomorrow, all Meyersdale High School students should login to Canvas to access their instruction. Both Meyersdale Elementary School and Meyersdale Middle School will be open for a regular school day with in-person instruction tomorrow. Thank you and have a good evening.

  • 11-5-20 COVID-19 Update

    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.

  • 10-18-20 COVID-19 Announcement

    Meyersdale Area Families, Students, Faculty & Staff,
    This weekend, we received notification of our first positive case of COVID-19 within our student body. The case is in the high school and we have been working on 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.
     
    Based on our findings, we feel it is in the best interests of our student body, faculty & staff to have a virtual instruction day tomorrow. Students will not report to school and should login to Canvas to access their instruction for the day. Faculty & Staff will report as normal. Buses will not run and there will be no extracurricular activities tomorrow.
     
    Note that our practice of wearing masks reduced the need for additional quarantining. Thank you for your support in this area.
