Update for MASD Families -- November 11


Dear Moon Area School District Families:  

You are probably aware of the increase in COVID-19 infections in the area.  want to assure you that I am in constant contact with the Allegheny County Health Department to ensure we are following their recommendations.  

Our goal is to keep our schools open for in-person instruction and maintain a learning environment that is as safe as possible for our students and staff.  With that in mind, I want to share this article with you. In my discussions with the Allegheny County Health Department, they havshared that the trends they are seeing are in line with this article 

As we head into the holiday season, I also want to share our travel guidelines with you. Please take a moment to read it. Click to read our travel guidelines 

I’m also pleased to share that we are bringing “The Scoop” back this year. The Scoop is an interview with me that covers topics that are relevant to our school district. Click to watch The Scoop: Episode 1 (2020-2021). Thank you to MAHS student Maddie Reiser for conducting the first interview this school year  

Finally, as a veteran myself, I humbly ask that we all take a moment to recognize and honor those who have served our country. Thank you to the brave men and women in uniform – past and present. Today we honor and appreciate you.
