Reopening Our Schools
District staff has been hard at work to ensure the safe return of students. Guided by the expertise and recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Pennsylvania Department of Health, Allegheny Health Department and District health officials, PPS has put in place multiple safeguards to support the safe reopening of schools.
COVID-19 numbers released for Allegheny County on Friday, January 15, 2021, have prompted the Board to consider halting the return to in-person hybrid learning, scheduled for February 8. A resolution, presented at the January 20, 2021, Agenda Review Meeting would postpone the phased-in approach until after Spring Break, April 6, following the anticipated rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine to employees. The Board will vote on the resolution at its January 27 Legislative Meeting.
