We just updated our School
Closure Guidance page to include more information on a variety of important
School Closure Guidance and additional resources are
available on our website: education.pa.gov/COVID19.
Additionally, the following statement was issued last
evening (March 19, 2020) to provide clarification regarding essential staff
involved in meal preparation and distribution to students during the COVID-19
Governor Wolf’s order calling on all non-life-sustaining
businesses in Pennsylvania to close their physical locations as of 8 p.m.,
March 19, does not prohibit school districts from continuing to offer food
services to children during the statewide school closure. LEAs may continue
to bring in essential employees involved in the preparation and distribution of
meals for children.
