CSAGH School Temporary Closure Announcement

Governor Wolf Gov. Tom Wolf has announced that all K-12 schools in Pennsylvania will be closed for 10 business days due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Beginning Monday, March 16th, CSAGH Schools will be closed for two weeks and will make the transition to “distant learning”. It is important to note that CSAGH does NOT have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, in order to keep students’ academic skills sharp and to eliminate disruption of the educational process, students will have assigned schoolwork. Early next week, students will be given 3 “vacation days” (Monday – Wednesday) while faculty and staff meet to implement our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to thoroughly explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
