April 9, 2020 Update
As many of you know, Governor Wolf has ordered all Pennsylvania school buildings to close for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. This order will extend the continuity of education plans that we have had in place for the district currently throughout the rest of the school year.
Here are some important things you should know:
The continuity of education plan that has been in place since March 16 will continue. Teachers will continue to provide instruction in grades K-12 through various means. Specifics about the courses, work, and classes will continue to come from the teachers and building administrators. We will work with families and provide abundant grace to help navigate these sensitive times.
As we look ahead, our teachers and administrators are aware that there may be areas of gaps in academics that may arise due to the unique learning situation into which we have all been thrust. Foundational skills that are needed for the next grade or course will be assessed at the start of next school year and our professional educators will ensure all students receive the re-teaching and remediation necessary through a strategic and targeted differentiated instructional model informed by each students’ unique needs.
The Meal Service for the children of the district will continue to be distributed at West Elementary through the end of this academic school year. ALL children are eligible for a free breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Children do not need to be present for the meals to be distributed.
For Kindergarten registration and new student enrollment, families can go to our website, Our registrar, Maggie Schearer, will contact you with more information following your pre-registration submission. She can also be reached at email@example.com . Kindergarten orientation days that are usually held in May will be postponed until the summer. Information will be sent to those families at a later date. and click on the “New Student Enrollment” tab to complete pre-registration.
Here are some things that are still being worked out:
Prom/Graduation will occur but we cannot determine when or how yet. As the situation unfolds, we will make arrangements to ensure that the Conrad Weiser High School Class of 2020 has opportunities to celebrate the culmination of their school years. This is an important time in their lives and we are committed to honoring that.
School Musical – Other options for the high school musical “Les Miserables” are being investigated.
More information (including information on getting into classroom and lockers for personal belongings) will follow based on the release of stay at home order and small gathering restrictions. Please stay tuned through your email, the district Facebook page, and the district website.
Please direct all specific questions to your child’s teacher and building administrators as appropriate.
