ACV Update 11-10-2021

Good afternoon,

Today I am calling to provide a few updates to our community.  

First, the district will be hosting our annual Veterans Day Program virtually on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 10 AM. You can access this link to this program tomorrow morning at acvsd.org. In addition, we ask that you let the veterans in your area know about this program. They will truly enjoy what the district has done to support our veterans.

Second, the COVID cases that were on campus for the week of November 1-5, 2021 was three positive cases and four people quarantined. 

I am sure that most of you have heard that a court has overturned the Wolf Administrations masking mandate (https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2021/11/10/court-overturns-pennsylvania-school-mask-mandate/). As of right now, the district is not changing our masking rule for students and staff and will wait for further guidance from our solicitor and the Pennsylvania Department of Education before we make changes to the current masking mandate. 

The Governor has issued a public statement that he will file an appeal and request an immediate stay of the order. If the stay is granted, the mask mandate will remain in effect until the court rules on the appeal. 

Finally, I would like to take this time to recognize and congratulate the coaches and players on the Falcon/Knights Football team for reaching the playoffs this season. There will be a home game at Union School District this Friday night at 7 PM; we hope to see all of you there!

Be safe and have a great evening.

Dr. McDeavitt
