REOPENING SCHOOLS FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR

PARENT ZOOMS/LATEST INFORMATION

The Upper Dauphin Area School District staff have been working to develop detailed plans for the return of students on August 24, 2020.  In preparation for that reopening, the UDASD has issued the following Return To School Guidance documents for each building.  These documents contain the latest information about the reopening of schools and the Enhanced Remote Education Program.  Each principal will hold a Zoom meeting on August 12, 2020.  The Elementary School Zoom will be at 6:00 PM.  The Middle School Zoom will be held at 7:00 PM and the High School Zoom will be held at 8:00 PM. 

In addition, the UDASD is issuing preliminary guidance on what criteria it will be using to determine whether schools or the entire district needs to be closed based on confirmed cases related to the school and community spread. This Decision Matrix provides some of the criteria that will be factored into the decision if, and when it becomes necessary.

The UDASD is also providing District Face Covering Protocols that explains the type of face coverings and general protocols about when face coverings will be necessary.  The above Return to School Guidance documents also contain information about face coverings and information specific to each school.

FACT SHEETS

The Upper Dauphin Area School District will be posting fact sheets on this page to provide information to stakeholders throughout the remainder of the summer.  These fact sheets are intended to help families sift through all of the information about the reopening of schools and find out specific information about the steps the UDASD is taking to return to school in a safe and organized manner.
