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.
