HS Connect Ed message – July 26, 2020

Hello.  This is Paula Husar, principal of Palmerton Area Senior High School.  I hope you are enjoying the summer weather.  I want to update you to the extent possible.  I just don’t want anyone thinking that I have forgotten about you.  I hope you and your families are well.

Please note that the revision of the district plan to re open schools is posted on the district website.  There is also a means to respond there.  (Use the e-mail address pasd@palmerton.org.)  Once the latest plan has been approved by the School Board, I will then share the latest building plan that will include details about social distancing in the classrooms, transition, lockers, entrance to school, dismissal from school, and the plan for the cafeteria.  I have been working on the plan for the high school since early May.  As you can imagine, things have changed numerous times as directives from the Governor are issued.  Please understand that even the plan that is on the website is a draft.  Things will be changing as the situation changes.  That is one thing that you can count on … changes.  There is a special meeting of the School Board scheduled for Tuesday.  If they approve the overall umbrella plan at that time, I will release the latest building plan in the upcoming weeks.

On another note, Mrs. Schaffer sent a communication via Schoology to her students concerning the SAT testing.  Mrs. Schaffer is the guidance counselor for incoming juniors and seniors.  Currently, the in house SAT is scheduled to be offered on September 23.  Please check her message for more information.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or e-mail at phusar@palmerton.org.

Thank you and stay healthy!
