Questions about COVID for the 2023-2024 School Year?
Beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, the State College Area School District will no longer follow any specific COVID-19 protocols (i.e. required masking, distancing, COVID+ in the home, etc.). Additionally, families do not need to report COVID+ cases to the district.
Moving forward, nurses will treat COVID-19 as an upper respiratory illness and follow our traditional protocols related to fevers for consideration of being sent home. As always, excuses for absences over the 10-day limit should come from a doctor.
Should you need further guidance related to COVID-19, please consult your family physician.
