Earlier this week, Tri-Valley School District announced that students attending Tri-Valley Junior-Senior High School would return to a full virtual class schedule.
The announcement came after the school revealed two people – a student and a staff member – tested positive for COVID-19. Tri-Valley says the positive tests and subsequent contact tracing has resulted in 11 staff members and 12 students to go into quarantine.
The full virtual class schedule started on Nov. 10 and is expected to continue through Nov. 19. Students in grades 7-12 can expect to go back to the district’s “hybrid” class schedule, at the earliest, on Nov. 20
“While I know this is disappointing news, please know that we have planned for this scenario,” Tri-Valley Superintendent Mark Snyder writes in a letter delivered to parents in the district earlier this week.
Tri-Valley students who attend Schuylkill Technology Center will still attend class in-person and the district is providing transportation to and from STC.
