WHSD Latest Update - March 23, 2020

Earlier today, the Department of Education (PDE) announced that all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed through at least April 6 as a result of the COVID-19 response efforts. The closure order could be extended beyond April 6 if necessary to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19.

As reported, under the new timeline school buildings would reopen on April 7 for two days to allow school administrators, teachers and other staff time to prepare classrooms, set up cafeterias, schedule transportation and arrange other business operations. Students would return to school on April 9, unless extending the closure is needed in response to the situation with the virus at that time.

All Wayne Highlands School District buildings will remain CLOSED with only very limited essential personnel available. Please contact 570-253-4661 with any questions.
