In anticipation of Board approval next week that would allow a hybrid option for those families who want to begin immediate transition back to onsite learning, Principals in all schools have developed teams who will continue reaching out to individual families to confirm school return preferences.

As your family makes final decisions about what is best for your Penn Hills student(s), please consider the importance of face coverings, maintaining six (6) feet of separation at all times, frequent handwashing, and remaining in the home for those who demonstrate any symptoms associated with potential COVID-19 exposure.  If your household includes younger students, and you intend to pursue hybrid learning options, please begin practicing these essential activities to help promote and maintain good health among all members of our extended school community. 

More information will be forthcoming from Building Principals regarding hybrid team assignments (if applicable), transportation schedules, and ChromeBook distribution, pending Board approval to proceed on August 12.

Our Athletics and Activities Director is also expected to provide more guidance next week regarding the status of formal practice among Fall Sports teams.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out should you have additional questions and/or concerns.

Take care,
Nancy
