Health and Safety Plan

The Lewisburg Area Board of School Directors approved the Health and Safety Plan on July 15, 2021.   A Health and Safety Plan is required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the plan must be reviewed every six month or if guidance or conditions change.   The Pennsylvania Department of Education's guidance for schools reflects the Centers for Disease Control's guidance.  Using the guidance from the CDC posted on July 9, 2021, the District will follow and apply the following recommendations:

  • All students, staff members, and visitors who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks indoors.   Fully vaccinated individuals may choose to wear a mask.   All students, staff members, and visitors who are not fully vaccinated will be required to wear masks indoors.  
  • Students ages 11 and under will be required to wear masks until vaccinations become available to this population in the fall.   
  • As per the federal order in January 2021, all students will be required to wear masks on school buses.   
  • Masks are not required outdoors on school district property.   

As a result of the revised guidance for masks by the CDC on July 27, 2021, the District revisited the Health and Safety Plan at the August 12 School Board meeting

The Health and Safety Plan approved on July 15 will be in effect for the opening of the school year.   

Other elements of the Health and Safety Plan include:

  • Monitoring community transmission levels as it may impact social distancing in the schools.  
  • Teaching and encouraging proper hand and respiratory hygiene practices. 
  • Applying the CDC's recommendations for disinfection of surfaces.  
  • Improving air quality through the installation of needlepoint bipolar ionization in all schools.
  • Participating in all contract tracing efforts for positive COVID-19 cases with the Pennsylvania Department of Health.  
  • Encouraging vaccinations for all eligible individuals by sharing information and excusing student absences due to vaccination.  Visit vaccines.gov for more information about vaccination locations.
