The Quaker Valley School District is shifting to online learning at the middle school and high school level for the next two weeks following a COVID-19 outbreak in the district.

Quaker Valley officials announced Saturday that the district has 11 cases of COVID-19 in the district, including nine new positive cases discovered in the past 24 hours. The number of cases means the district must transition to 100 percent online learning and close its school doors for the next 14 days, as mandated by guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Students in grades 6-12 will have synchronous classes on Zoom from Monday, Oct. 19 through Friday, Oct. 30.

“The District is working with the Allegheny County Health Department to determine detailed contact tracing,” Quaker Valley School District said in a statement. “At this time, those identified for quarantine will be personally contacted by the District or the Health Department. We will also continue to update families if the Health Department requires any additional steps. It is prudent for all others to pay close attention to their health and contact their health care provider, if necessary.”
