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 informaiton 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 of Disese Control and other local or state agencies.  We strongly recommend that families consider to put their own plan in place for students in the event that schools may have to close within a short time frame.

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.
