Dear Annville-Cleona School District Parent(s)/Guardian(s):
As you may have read yesterday, December 10, 2021, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed the Order of Commonwealth Court which vacated the Face Covering Order issued by the Department of Health in August. Therefore, effective immediately, the mask mandate is vacated. The written opinion by the Supreme Court will be issued later.
Unless there are additional legalities that get released, the Annville-Cleona School District will revert back to the Board Approved Health and Safety Plan from August 9, 2021 which makes masks optional for all students and staff effective immediately. Please note that masks will still be required on all district bus and van transportation since the mask order on transportation is a Federal Order.
The district will continue with our other mitigation efforts that have been in effect last year and thus far this school year. Additionally, for your convenience, I have linked the update of the current positive COVID cases by building on our district website (which is linked here). This has also been included each week in the principals’ updates.
If you have any questions or concerns about the information contained in this letter, please feel free to contact me.
