4/9/2020 Letter to the Community

April 9, 2020

Greetings to Charleroi Area Students, Staff, Parents, and Community

We want to provide an important update to the entire Charleroi Area learning community.  The Pennsylvania Secretary of Education issued an order this morning to close all public schools through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year as defined by the local school calendar.  In addition, Governor Wolf is ordering all K-12 schools and programs, public and private, to be closed through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year.  Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts, Head Start Supplemental Assistance Programs and Preschool Early Intervention programs will remain closed, and institutions of higher learning are prohibited from offering in-person instruction.

The decision in Pennsylvania is consistent with many other states.  As part of our ongoing communications with all stakeholders, we will update you after spring break with many of the key concepts and questions regarding the closure of our brick and mortar school for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is important to note that we will continue to implement our Continuity of Education Plan and Google classroom online learning platform for the rest of the 2019-2020 academic school year.  We are very pleased with the approach and the collaborative support for this program.  It is important for students to continue with our plans in order for us to implement grades and promotion.  If students fail to participate in online learning, it is possible that they will be retained to the same grade level for the 2020-2021 school year. Please note that June 5, 2020 is the last scheduled academic day for our 2019-2020 school calendar.  If you have any questions about completing classwork, please contact your child’s teacher or school.

The student parent and staff feedback toward online learning has been extremely positive.  Online learning though our school district will resume on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.  We will continue to learn and grow together in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you for your continued support of the Charleroi Area School District.  We will continue to share our plans with you in the upcoming weeks.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful spring break.

Sincerely,

Ed
