Neshannock Township School District received notification that two non-teaching staffs member in the junior-senior high school, four students in the junior-senior high school, and one non-teaching staff member in the elementary school tested positive for COVID-19. The individuals were last on campus, respectively, on January 7, 10, 11, and 12; therefore, contact tracing has been conducted. No individuals have been identified as fitting the definition of a close contact. Any contact tracing regarding potential non-school related exposure will be conducted by the Department of Health through cooperation and communication with the individuals and/or the families.
We remain committed to keeping all stakeholders informed in order to ensure a safe, secure environment for all. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Julie Morrone or Mrs. Heather Collins.
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.
Thank you for your continued patience, support, and commitment to mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Dr. Terence P. Meehan
Superintendent, Neshannock Township School District
