WSSD Health and Safety Plan
The Wallingford-Swarthmore School District, like all school districts and entities throughout the state, was tasked by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to create a Health and Safety Plan which will serve as the local guidelines for all instructional and non-instructional school reopening activities.
The Health and Safety Plan was developed by the WSSD District Pandemic Team with support from the WSSD Health and Safety Planning Committee and Administrative and Medical Consult teams.
The plan follows the guidelines established by:
- Chester County Health Department (CCHD)
- Pennsylvania Health Department (DOH)
- Center for Disease Control (CDC)
- Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE)
- Office of the Governor of the State of Pennsylvania
This is a fluid document and is subject to change depending upon the public health conditions in Delaware County. There could be additional actions, orders, or guidance provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and/or the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) designating the county as being in the red, yellow, or green phase. School closings or significant modification to operations due to COVID-19 will be implemented with the collaboration of the Chester County Health Department and/or on the advice of state and federal orders or mandates.
Please read through the plan for the most up-to-date information at this time.
Please also see the WSSD Attestation Ensuring Implementation of Mitigation Efforts (dated November 24th and signed by Dr. David Grande, WSSD Board President, and Dr. Lisa Palmer, WSSD Superintendent of Schools) for post-Thanksgiving updates.
After reading, if you have further questions, please reach out to your building principal.
