The Seneca Valley School District has decided to temporarily close a school as a result of a rising number of COVID-19 cases.
A recent communication from administrators to staff and parents states that the Ryan Gloyer Middle School has been closed to in-person instruction.
A total of five active cases have been confirmed including three teachers and two students. Several other teachers and students from that school are waiting on test results which could result in confirmation of additional COVID-19 cases.
At this point, only the Ryan Gloyer Middle School has been temporarily closed with students and teachers transitioned to a fully remote learning plan using livestreaming through Tuesday, November 10th. The plan now is to reopen for in-person instruction November 11th.
Seneca Valley has reported 12 total active cases of COVID across four schools including Connoquenessing Valley, the Intermediate High School, and the Academy of Choice. Future decisions about health concerns will be made with guidance from state and local officials.
