2021-22 School Year Information

Revised Health and Safety Plan

The Lewisburg Area School District School Board approved the revised Health and Safety Plan on February 24, 2022.   The revised plan went into effect on February 25, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.  

  • Masks are recommended and not required for students, staff, and visitors while indoors.   
  • Masks are recommended and not required on school buses. 

Revised Health and Safety Plan

The CDC issued new guidance on February 25, 2022.    When the COVID-19 community level is high, we recommend that individuals wear masks indoors.  

Elements of the plan that remain in place from the February 10, 2022 revision include:

  • We ask parents to review the latest guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health on what one should do if one has tested positive for COVID-19 or is a contact of someone who has COVID-19.   The District will send parents update guidance as it becomes available. The current guidance can be found here.
  • We ask parents to monitor their child for symptoms of COVID-19 and take appropriate steps to determine if the child is positive.  Positive students should stay home for at least 5 days and return when the symptoms resolve and are fever-free without medication for 24 hours.  
  • We ask parents to inform the school nurse if their child is positive.   This is for the District’s weekly case reporting to the Pennsylvania Department of Education. 
  • The school nurse will contact the parents of an immunocompromised student to inform them that their child may have come in contact with someone who have COVID-19.  
  • School nurses will contact parents if a student becomes ill during the school day.   If the student has a fever, the student will need to stay home until fever-free for 24 hours.   However, the school nurses will not contact parents if their child had a possible exposure at school.   The District will not exclude asymptomatic students.  

A Health and Safety Plan is required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the plan must be reviewed every six months.
