Update 1.30.2021 - New Holland Elementary School Shift to Remote Learning
 

New Holland Elementary School will shift learning from in-person to ALL remote-learning starting Monday, February 1, 2021, through Wednesday, February 3, 2021, due to four (4) COVID cases at the school and in keeping with the Governor’s Orders and the direction from the Department of Health.  Some Special Education classes will resume on site, Wednesday, February 3rd.   If your learner is included in these classes, you will be notified directly by your child’s teacher.  Teachers will teach from home on Monday, February 1st and Tuesday, February 2nd and from their classrooms on Wednesday, February 3rd.   Please Note:  Due to possible inclement weather, if a snow day is called for Monday, February 1st, no in-person remote classes will occur.

 

This shift provides the District time to ascertain and complete contact tracing and to thoroughly clean the school with increased focus in the areas affected by these cases.  Please continue to monitor the District’s website for updates.

Please see the updated adjustment that we must recognize regarding the face shield as a “face covering”. This is promulgated by the Pennsylvania Department of Health per CDC. If you are using the face shield, please adhere to the following if you have not been doing so already:
 
“Alternative to a face covering” may include a plastic face shield that covers the nose and mouth, extends below the chin and to the ears, and leaves no exposed gap between the forehead and the shield’s headpiece. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised there is currently not enough evidence to determine how much protection a face shield provides to individuals around the person wearing the face shield, because of gaps where respiratory droplets may escape. The CDC does state, however, that face shields may still be an option in situations where wearing a cloth face covering is not otherwise feasible.
 
Thank you.
