Team PDE,

Today Governor Wolf announced that all schools would be closed for the remainder of their academic year. This decision was made to keep kids safe, as well as allow our school leaders and teachers to put their energy behind offering instruction and serving students, rather than preparing to re-open schools.

While this decision provides predictability for our educational communities, Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 response continues to evolve. I will continue to share updates as they become available, and I encourage you to visit InsidePDE and PDE’s COVID-19 website regularly to ensure you are accessing the most up-to-date information.

To provide you with additional context, below is the message I sent to all LEA leaders this morning.

Thank you for all you continue to do, and please be safe,

-Pedro
