ACV Update 9-6-2021

Good evening, 

Please use this phone call as a district-wide update on our current positive COVID cases within our district, and how we are planning to provide instruction for this week.

At the Elementary school, we have 10 positive COVID cases, awaiting six COVID test results, and almost 70 people are now quarantined. At the Elementary we are especially concerned about a possible outbreak in the grade five and six community area. The Jr/Sr High School has seven positive COVID cases, four people are waiting COVID test results, and 48 people are quarantined.

We have a call into the Pennsylvania department of health seeking guidance, but in the meantime, A-C Valley will be going into the district-wide k-12 distance learning model for Tuesday and Wednesday.

This means that all students and teaching staff will be at home and logging into their google classroom for virtual instruction tomorrow and the next day. This virtual learning program will enable us to do deep cleaning in the district, and reduce the number of students and staff on campus in the hopes to stop this spread.

I will monitor this situation closely and if the pending COVID test results are negative and we do not have additional COVID cases in the district, I am hopeful we can get back into face-to-face instruction later this week. Now, if our COVID cases continue to increase we may have to extend this closure.

I will be working with the food service director and transportation director tomorrow morning to put a plan into place for student lunches and breakfast starting on Wednesday. I am sorry, but we will not be ready to offer pick-up or delivery tomorrow. Additional information about lunches will be sent out during the day tomorrow.

Students, you are expected to log into the google classroom before 8 AM tomorrow morning, read and follow your teacher’s instructions.

Parents, if you need assistance with your child’s log-in please email your teacher, or call the Elementary School or Jr/Sr HS office for support.

Staff check your email before five o’clock for further guidance.

Dr. David McDeavitt
