Dear School Community,

It’s been a crazy Sunday for us as we just learned that we have to suspend hybrid learning at another school. Garnet Valley Elementary School reached its 4th positive/probable COVID case. Based on the current Pennsylvania Department of Education guidelines and in consultation with the Chester County Department of Health, we are now mandated to implement virtual learning for all students on Monday, December 14th through Wednesday, December 16th.  Students will continue to follow the normal schedule over these virtual days, with students in Cohort B returning to hybrid learning on Thursday, December 17th. 

 

Although our custodial team will do a deep clean and disinfection of classrooms with our electrostatic foggers and disinfectants on Monday, the building is closed to all students and employees until Thursday, December 17th. The contact tracing for all of the current cases is complete; nevertheless, we will continue to work in conjunction with the Chester County Health Department to investigate any additional information that comes to our attention. 

 

Thank you for your patience and support during this frustrating, confusing, and scary time. So that we can get our students back in school as soon as safely possible, please continue to practice the various health precautions, most notably masking and social distancing, 

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent
