Communication via School Messenger to Parents/Guardians regarding to COVID-19 Last Updated: 1/17/2022 6:18 PM

Dear Parents/Guardians,

At its recent school board meeting, the Board of Directors approved the update to the Hollidaysburg Area School District Health and Safety Plan.  The updated plan is posted on the District’s website under “Coronavirus Information.”.

As the plan has been revised over the past few months, a flowchart has been created to help clarify case response protocol for a COVID positive individual as well as a household and non-household close contact. Please access the flowchart by clicking the link below.
