The Wilson School District operated under a board-approved Health and Safety Plan for the 2020-2021 school year, designed to help keep our students and staff safe and to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
All Pennsylvania school districts that have received Title 1-A grant funding for the 2020-2021 fiscal year and who plan to apply for funding through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act are required to develop and make publicly available a Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan, also referred to as a Health and Safety Plan.
At the June 21, 2021 Wilson School Board meeting, this Health and Safety Plan was presented for consideration. The plan template, which is much more succinct than the plan required for the reopening of school for the 2020-21 school year, asks school districts to answer a few basic questions about mitigation strategies and operational procedures, which have been left to local school districts to determine. Some of these strategies include: masking, physical distancing, hygiene, cleaning and sanitization and coordination with state and local health officials.
You can read our district’s full ARP/ESSER Health and Safety Plan attached here. Our plan was created by pulling essential elements from the original 2020-2021 plan, specifically those that were known to be both effective and practical in their implementation.
The district is required to review this plan periodically to account for changes in community spread. Any changes to the plan will require board review and approval.
We would like to receive our community and staff feedback regarding our proposed Health and Safety Plan. To access the survey, please click here. The deadline to respond to complete the survey is Wednesday, July 7, 2021.
Thank you for your continued support of the Wilson School District. We look forward to seeing all our students back in the classroom in the fall.
