This afternoon, the Pennsylvania Departments of Health and Education will release updated health guidance for school leaders to use when crafting Health and Safety Plans for the resumption of in-person instruction. This guidance is comprised of endorsed best practices for public health, and builds on prior iterations of school reopening guidance distributed by PDE.  

This work was informed by the conversations that members of the team at PDE have had with many of you over the past several weeks.  I know there continues to be great uncertainty regarding the pandemic and its impact on our communities, but I am hopeful that this health-focused guidance will serve as an additional resource to help you plan.  

Thank you for all you continue to do in serving your students, staff, and communities.
