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.
