The Palmyra Area District is committed to the health and safety of its students, staff, and the greater community. The Federal COVID-19 COVID Health Emergency ended,
in May 2023. At this time, the PASD is no longer requiring mandatory exclusion. However, the District recognizes that COVID-19 virus is still present in our society.
The District is treating COVID-19 like other viruses. If your child is too ill to come to school, please keep them home. An absent note needs to be submitted to the school upon their
return. If your child has a fever during this illness or any other illness, your child must be fever-free for 24 hours prior to their return to school. The District will honor any other
guidance given to you by your medical provider.
We continue to remain in contact with the PA Department of Health and the PA Department of Education. The most recent directive from the Department of Education requires each school district
in Pennsylvania to maintain a Health and Safety Plans for Reopening Schools. The Palmyra Area School District Plan was approved by the Board of Directors on July 15, 2021, and, as
required, is reviewed by the Board every six months. The plan is based on school safety requirements and provide a basic framework for our district.
