With the excitement of the new year, also comes cautious optimism regarding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Neshannock Township School District looks forward to welcoming staff and students back to the building for continued in-person learning on January 3, 2022.
According to the CDC, Lawrence County is experiencing a high rate of transmission. The District will continue to adhere to our Guidelines for Temporary Closure as we respond to Covid-19 cases. Should the District need to move to a full-virtual format on a temporary basis, students and families will be notified via our SchoolMessenger system – phone call and text alert – and our website, NTSD.org.
It is our goal to be able to maintain in-person learning for students at all grade levels; however, we cannot do that without the help of our community. Please review the “When Should I Stay Home from School” and “When Can I Return to School” charts posted below. Please do not send your child to school for in-person learning if he/she is not feeling well.
If your child is showing any symptoms related to Covid-19 or other illnesses, please take advantage of our virtual platforms. Students feeling well enough to work from home are able to access each day’s coursework on Schoology (Grades 7-12) or Google Classroom (Grades K-6) in the event of an absence from the building; therefore, their academic progress may remain uninterrupted.
We remain committed to keeping all stakeholders informed in order to ensure a safe, secure environment for all. If you have any questions related to Covid-19, please reach out to our school nurses, Mrs. Julie Morrone (Grades 7-12) or Mrs. Heather Collins (Grades K-6).
