School District of Lancaster Back to School Plan

Our commitment to learning together—safely

Health and safety are foremost in your minds—and in ours, too. We recognize how important it is for our students to be safe when learning. We continue to reply on  guidance from the Pennsylvania Departments of Health and Education, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics. We also collaborate with local health providers at Lancaster General Health and practicing physicians in our community, including three who served on our Health and Welfare priority team.

We know this means teaching and learning look different this year. This section of our website outlines our instructional models, health protocols and enhanced cleaning procedures. We’ve also had to make changes. Click below for a chronological list of updates.

COVID-19 Updates

Teaching & Learning will look different. And families have options.

Beginning in January 2021, families have the option to send their child to school for onsite instruction, keep their child home to “Zoom In” to their traditional classroom or enroll in Cyber Pathways Academy for a full cyber learning program. Most students in grades K-8 may attend school onsite full day, five days per week, if they choose. High school students will attend on a hybrid schedule.

We are committed to the health and welfare of our students and staff.

Working together, by monitoring ourselves and our children for illness and responding quickly to isolate potential COVID-19 cases, we can keep each other safe and minimize disruptions to learning.

We're enhancing our disinfecting and cleaning protocols everywhere.

Providing peace of mind is vital as we return to our buildings. That’s why cleaning our schools is a top priority. We’ve increased our custodial staff and brought in new cleaning technology to remove dirt, dust and germs from surfaces in our schools. Plus, we’re limiting visitors and monitoring contacts every day.

We are ready to adjust our plan, when needed.

We remain hopeful there will soon be a time when we can bring all students back, all day. Our teachers are ready to implement a hybrid, or “blended” model of instruction. And they will continue to refine and improve online learning. We are committed to maintaining a high level of instruction.
