Beginning April 6th, the Southern Huntingdon County School District will operate on a full in-person instructional model.

This message is also a reminder that there is no school on April 1st, 2nd, and 5th.
The High School/Middle School has confirmation of four positive COVID 19 cases within a rolling 14 day period. The Department of Health guidance for buildings of 500 to 900 students while in a substantial classification should move to a remote instructional model for a period of three to seven days. With this recommendation, Southern Huntingdon County High School/Middle School will operate on a remote learning instructional model on March 10, 11, and 12 and resume full in-person instruction on Monday, March 15. At the present time, our athletic programs remain operational. Our elementary buildings will remain on the Monday through Thursday and remote Friday schedule.
The board voted on a new hybrid plan. Beginning February 22nd, our students will be returning full-time Monday through Thursday. On Friday, we will hold a remote day for all students in order to deep clean.
On January 7, 2021, The PA Department of Education and PA Department of Health released new guidance encouraging districts to reopen for elementary school students with appropriate safety guidelines including six feet for social distancing and face coverings. Additionally, due to some student populations being disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 response efforts, schools should consider resuming in-person instruction for targeted student populations (i.e., students with disabilities, English Learners, etc.), regardless of the general instructional model they are utilizing.
On January 13th, the Southern Huntingdon County School District Board voted to operate on a hybrid model for all students, beginning on January 18th, 2021. Group one will attend on Mondays and Wednesdays, Group two will attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Fridays will be remote for both groups.
HCCTC will attend Monday-Thursday and transportation will be provided from the high school to the HCCTC by the school district. The HCCTC will not be reopening until January 20; HCCTC students may leave at the end of the 4th period on Monday, January 18 and Tuesday, January 19 if they have a parent note on file.
The Act 80 Day previously scheduled for January 18th will be rescheduled for January 15th. An Act 80 Day is a non-student day where teachers work on professional development activities.
