Dear Allard Families:
J.A. Allard Elementary is excited to welcome back our K-4 students to our building on October 5, 2020. The COVID-19 Pandemic has certainly presented our educational institutions and society with unique challenges. Our faculty and staff?across Moon Area School District have?been working diligently to ensure that students are setup for success.
Although there have been significant changes in education, we are determined to adapt and conform to what is best to serve our students and Moon Area community.
The safety of our students, staff, and community continues to be at the forefront of our planning. We continue to seek guidance from the CDC, the PA Department of Health and the PA Department of Education. We have enhanced our hygiene, cleaning, and social distancing protocols.
Beginning on October 5, 2020, elementary students will have the opportunity to return to school for in-person instruction four days a week.
- Students will attend school in person on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
- Students will participate in virtual instruction on Wednesday. The lessons may be synchronous or asynchronous.
- Students will continue to participate in virtual instruction five days a week. There will be a combination of synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
In preparation for student return, we ask families to complete the questionnaire that was emailed to them no later than Tuesday, September 22, 2020 by noon.
More detailed information will be shared with families the week of September 21 to ensure a safe and orderly routine for students and staff. This will include health and safety protocols for the classroom, lunch, playground and school bus, arrival and dismissal procedures, facial covering requirements and more.
Working together,?teachers, students, and families build a strong school and Moon Area community.?We appreciate your support as?our staff and?students’?journey through?these unique times.??
To best set up our students?and staff?for success,?we?are strongly encouraging?an open line of communication. We want nothing more than to see our students?succeed.??
Please don’t hesitate to contact me?or your child’s teacher?with any questions you may have about your child?during this transitional period.?
