HEALTH & SAFETY PLAN

FROM THE DISTRICT

Planned Use of Federal Funds in Response to COVID-19 - The Allegheny Valley School District receives federal funds designed to support public schools in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The purpose of this document is to provide the public with information regarding the allocation and usage of funds allocated to 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

2-28-22: On Friday, February 25, 2022, the CDC announced that it will not require the wearing of masks on buses or vans operated by public or private school systems, including early care and education/child care programs. The District has changed its procedures for masks to be recommended on school transportation, but not required. The information has been shared with the bus company.

2-16-22:  The District would like to remind parents:

-That although the School Board voted last evening to make masking “recommended” in buildings, the mandate for masking on buses is still in effect.  Wearing masks on buses is a Federal mandate from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and requires all passengers and drivers to wear a mask on school buses, including buses operated by public and private school systems. This federal order remains in effect until the CDC indicates otherwise and does not change when the state mask requirement ends.  Currently, the order extends through March 18.

- Some students will continue to wear masks, some will not.  Students should not pressure their classmates either way.  We ask that parents and students respect all family decisions.  Everyone should feel welcome in the school, regardless of their choices. 

-The decision to move masking from required to recommended may fluctuate depending on the COVID transmission levels and data from the CDC and Allegheny County Health Department. 

2-15-22: At their February 15, 2022 meeting, the Allegheny Valley School Board voted to amend the current Health Safety Plan to make masking recommended.
