On Thursday, December 16, Chester County Schools announced that they will be making the school settings, district wide, more available to Chester County students’ families and other Chester County Schools stakeholders.
Read the letter to stakeholders below.
“CC Stakeholders,
Good afternoon. This document serves as evidence of new district-wide adjustments to school event attendance for the public starting next semester in January 2022. Current C-19 trends are supporting these adjustments.
Public access to school events- With the current trend of reduced C-19 active cases among students and staff in the Chester County school system, the school settings will be more available for onsite access of families and other stakeholders during the second semester of the 2021-22 school year.
Beginning when students return in January 2022, each school campus will be available for onsite, in-person events. All onsite school meetings and events are required to be scheduled through the school administrators or his/her designee.
The school staff will continue to host required meetings for students and families during the school year virtually or in-person. Students’ families may request a teacher or principal meeting by scheduling at least one (1) school day before the event that may occur in-person, virtually, electronically, or by phone.
However, there will be some carryover of more restrictive practices from last school year to ensure that adequate facility space and security for students and staff are available. Some continued restrictions are the following:
Parents and/or families will not be permitted to walk their students to class or eat meals with their students during the school day without prior approval from the school administrators. No food products will be brought into the school campus during the school day from parents and/or families without prior approval from the school administrators.
As practiced last school year, unplanned or unscheduled meetings with students’ families and staff will be limited. Given these new allowances, the C-19 trends will be continually monitored and further adjustments will be made to continue to provide the best environment for our students and staff.
Have a great Christmas and New Years celebration!”
