HEALTH & SAFETY PLAN

FROM THE DISTRICT

The District will continue to provide information on Covid protocols, procedures, and changes for students and staff.  It is the intent to provide as much information as possible, as quickly as possible, to help parents and families plan for disruptions to the daily routine of the schools.  The District believes that things with this virus will continue to change quickly.  Allegheny Valley's plan is also subject to change with little notice, based on the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and other local or state agencies.  We strongly recommend that families consider putting their own plan in place for students in the event that schools may have to close within a short time frame.

FROM THE NURSE'S OFFICE

Parents are encouraged to contact Ms. Kandi Conner, School Nurse, to report positive cases of COVID-19 that directly affect their child, including if the child has tested positive, has symptoms related to COVID, or has been exposed and will need to quarantine.  The District also asks if your child is symptomatic or may have been in close contact with a positive case he/she should stay home.  The District stresses the importance of contacting the School Nurse directly.  Ms. Kandi Conner serves as the District’s School Nurse (kconner@avsd.k12.pa.us or 724-274-2110 (office) or 724-900-5443 (hotline)). If your child has been vaccinated for COVID-19, parents are asked to please provide a copy of his/her vaccination card as documentation of the date(s) the vaccine was given.  COVID-19 vaccination documentation may be sent electronically to Ms. Kandi Conner at kconner@avsd.k12.pa.us.  Copies of vaccination cards may also be sent by US mail to Ms. Kandi Conner, School Nurse, Springdale Jr-Sr High School, 501 Butler Road, Springdale, PA 15144 or dropped off at the high school building.  The District will gladly make a copy of the vaccination card.

Symptom Screening Tool

Allegheny Valley stresses the importance of students and staff to administer the AVSD Symptom Screening Tool every day. If an individual is symptomatic or may have been in close contact with a positive case, he/she needs to stay home and contact the school nurse immediately. The cooperation of District staff and families with sharing information with nurses and reporting any and all positive cases of COVID-19 within your family or close contacts is very important.

DISTRICT UPDATES

1-4-22:  On December 27, 2021, the CDC changed its guidance for Isolation and Quarantine due to COVID 19. As long as a person who has received a positive COVID-19 test is asymptomatic or symptoms are improving (and fever-free for 24 hours), he/she may return to work or school after 5 days of isolation. He/she must wear a mask for the next 5 days.

Similarly, those exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 may quarantine for 5 days, and test. They may then return to work or school with a mask for the next 5 days. If they were:                                                                                           

  • completely vaccinated with a Pfizer or Moderna (mRNA) within the last 6  months
  • or with the J&J shot in the past 2 months
  • or are vaccinated and boostered (3 shots in an mRNA vaccine or 2 with a viral vector – J&J)

they are exempt from quarantine and may continue working or learning masked, and test at 5 days.
