From mid-August to September 18, 2014, a total of 153 people from 18 states were confirmed to have respiratory illness caused by EV-D68. Recently, several cases have been confirmed in Pennsylvania.

Important Reminder Regarding the Elementary Schedule

Please note the following important reminder regarding the elementary schedule:

  • Students will follow a 5-day cycle, particularly for specialist classes (Art, Music, Library, Phys. Ed.)
  • It is important to know which day of the cycle we are on versus which day of the week it is
  • Instead of your student having a specialist class on a specific day of the week, such as Wednesday, your child may have that specialist on Day 3
  • The day of the cycle will be included in the morning announcements each day and is posted on each school website; teachers will also continue to remind students of the schedule.

Example:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Aug. 25-DAY 1 Aug. 26-DAY 2 Aug. 27-DAY 3 Aug. 28-DAY 4 Aug. 29-No School
Sept. 1-No School Sept. 2-DAY 5 Sept. 3-DAY 1 Sept. 4-DAY 2 Sept. 5-DAY 3
