The purpose of the Athens Area School District Health and Safety Plan is to develop procedures to help protect individuals from the spread of communicable diseases. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is the driving force behind our decision making process. This plan is a preliminary plan based on Bradford County's current "green" designation per Governor Wolfe's guidelines. We will continue to develop additional options which include, in person instruction, full remote learning and a hybrid between the two. We will also have in-house, remote learning options including the Wildcat Online Learning Academy (WOLA), Seesaw for grades K-2 and Schoology for grades 3-12 even when schools are open.
The AASD has worked to balance the desire to successfully open our schools to students, faculty and staff while taking practical steps to help mitigate the risks to all involved. This plan has been designed with stakeholder input and can, and will be, amended as local conditions dictate.
