Annville Elementary School Structural Updates

Community Update - September 26, 2020

Every week so far seems to bring something new for us to adjust to and figure out how to achieve and overcome.  This week was calmer than the previous weeks and for that, we are thankful!

We did however receive information from our Engineering Firm that the structural issues at Annville Elementary School will be able to be fixed quicker than originally expected.  The settlement that caused the damage is centralized to the cafeteria area of the building.  While this is great news, we still need to wait until the settlement is fixed prior to resuming in-person instruction at Annville Elementary.  The tentative construction schedule has the repairs slated to be completed in early November.  

We are hopeful that our current plan that affects the High School and Annville Elementary students will continue to work until we are able to re-occupy Annville Elementary School.  An update will be provided closer to that time to keep families informed.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to myself or our administrative team and we will be happy to assist however we can.

Thank you for your support!

Professionally,

On September 4, it was determined by an engineering firm that there is settlement under Annville Elementary which has caused damage to the building’s structure.  Because of this damage, Annville Elementary will be closed to all students and staff effective immediately.  While this is unexpected, we are very thankful that this was found when there were no students in the building. 

For the next few months, Annville Elementary will be closed to all students and staff.  We will be instructing all Annville Elementary students virtually, at home.  While we are adjusting to this virtual environment, we will temporarily (for the week of September 8 through September 11) be instructing asynchronously to assist families in finding childcare that can accommodate virtual learning.  Each teacher will post on their Schoology page how they will instruct and their office hours.  After September 11, we will communicate with families how our staff will virtually instruct Annville Elementary students as our goal is to get back to a synchronous learning environment at home. 

Annville Elementary closing does not affect Cleona Elementary or the Secondary School schedule.  Both Cleona Elementary and the Secondary School will continue to follow the Phased Reopening schedule.  We will be looking at options we may have to relocate our Annville Elementary students and staff to a different facility and will communicate that information when we have it.  As soon as we have more concrete information regarding how long Annville Elementary will be closed, we will communicate that immediately and it will be posted on our website.
