SHHS to Return to All Virtual Learning

December 14, 2020   

Dear WSSD Community,

Today we reached our 6th positive COVID case at Strath Haven High School. Based on the current Pennsylvania Department of Education guidelines and in consultation with the Chester County Department of Health, we are now mandated to implement virtual learning for all SHHS students on Tuesday, December 15th through Friday, December 18th.  All students will attend school virtually according to the SHHS “All Virtual” schedule.

The High School will be closed to all students and employees until Monday, December 21st.  During this time our cleaning team will thoroughly disinfect our High School again.  The contact tracing for all of the current cases is complete; nevertheless, we will continue to work in conjunction with the Chester County Health Department to investigate any additional information that comes to our attention. 

Thank you for your patience and support during this ever-changing time. So that we can get our students back in school as soon as safely possible, please continue to practice the various health precautions, most notably masking and social distancing, 

Very truly yours,
Lisa Palmer, Superintendent
