This is an update regarding the Pennsylvania mask mandate. A recent Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling has officially ended the mask mandate. Therefore, beginning Monday, December 13, students, staff and visitors are not required to wear masks in school, BUT we strongly advise the use of masks for non-vaccinated persons. We believe that the very best protection against COVID infection is full vaccination. All of this information can be found as part of our original Health and Safety Plan on the ASD website. PLEASE NOTE that despite the ruling, masks are still mandated on school buses per the February 1, 2021 CDC Order. We will inform our school community if any changes to the Health and Safety Plan become necessary in the future based on local public health data or additional directives from the commonwealth.
