From the District:
The District will continue to provide information on Covid protocols, procedures, and changes for staff and students. It is our intent to provide as much information as possible, as quickly as possible, to help parents and families plan for disruptions in the daily routine of the schools. The District believes that this virus will continue to change quickly. Allegheny Valley’s plan is also subject to change with little notice, based on the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and other local or state agencies. We strongly recommend that families continue to have a plan in place for students in the event that schools may have to close within a short time frame.
At this time, Allegheny Valley School District will not be conducting close contact tracing. Students will not be sent home to quarantine by AVSD staff. If a student or staff member notifies the school that he/she has tested positive for COVID that individual will be told/asked to stay home for five days and mask for five days upon return to school. This information is subject to change as per CDC Guidelines.

As many news agencies have reported, the CDC is closely monitoring the Coronavirus. Naturally, it is normal to be concerned when news agencies report on trending health-related events. Please use information from official public health agencies as trusted sources of information, including the CDC, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Department of Public Safety. The Pennsylvania Department of Health has shared the following tips on their website to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, such as novel Coronavirus:
- Cover coughs or sneezes with your elbow. Do not use your hands!
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, remotes, and other frequently touched items.
- Contain: if you are sick, stay home until you are feeling better.
