Update 3/23/20 -
As of 2:15 this afternoon, Gov. Wolf has ordered that all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed through at least April 6th. Under this new timeline, schools would be able to re-open on April 7th for staff to reorganize, with students returning no earlier than April 9th.
In addition to the previously canceled PSSA and Keystone Exams, standardized testing for students in career and technical education programs has been added to the cancellation list for the 2019-20 school year. This includes the NOCTI exams.
There are still many unanswered questions related to continuity of education, paying employees, etc. that we have. We are anticipating that the PA General Assembly will pass a School Code Bill later this week that will give us more information. In the meantime, teachers are working to prepare more specific review and enrichment activities for students which will be ready later this week. Also, unless we are told otherwise, meal distributions will continue as scheduled.
At 3:00pm today, Friday March 13, 2020, Governor Wolf ordered that all schools in the Commonwealth close for two weeks.
As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to be a prominent story in the news and cases in
Pennsylvania have risen, the Tyrone Area School District is monitoring the spread of the virus through our contacts with the PA Department of Health and Blair County Emergency Management to ensure the safety of our staff and students.
We will continue to update this information as new information becomes available.
