The Penn-Trafford School District is closely monitoring developments with the COVID-19 pandemic. Updates will be posted here.
PTHS JUNIORS CAN RETURN TO 5-DAYS IN SCHOOL
PTHS will transition the second group of students, the junior class, back to a brick and mortar setting 5 days a week on Wednesday, March 3, 2021. We will continue to offer the hybrid and full time online model for those junior students that do not wish to return to the building full time. No additional action is necessary for parents to inform us of what model they plan on following.

2-Hour Delay Wednesdays
Starting on December 9, PTSD will operate on a two-hour delay every Wednesday. This will provide teachers with additional time to deal with the planning required to prepare for the large percentage of students who are online daily or who transition to and from online instruction.

Health & Safety Plan
The most recent update to our Health and Safety Plan was approved at the December 7, 2020 School Board Meeting.

Symptom Screening Tool
It is important for students and staff to administer the PTSD Symptom Screening Tool every day. If you are symptomatic or may have been in close contact with a positive case you need to stay home and contact the school nurse immediately. Your cooperation with sharing information with our nurses and reporting any positive cases of COVID-19 within your family or close contacts is very important.
CLICK HERE for updated Athletic Health & Safety Plan (12-04-20).
At this time ALL school athletic events are closed to the public. For gymnasium events that allow spectators, only families will be permitted at this time if we can accommodate. Information will be provided before each game. We can not allow spectators at the pool at this time. We are working on a live stream for the swim meets. There will be no admission charge to our Warrior families and all of main gymnasium events will be live streamed (NFHS LIVE STREAM) for free to all fans this year.
