The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) released preliminary guidelines for reopening schools on June 3, 2020, which indicate a Health & Safety plan must first be developed and approved, serving as the local guideline for all school reopening activities.

All reopening plans for MTSD will be required to follow Governor Wolf’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania, including plans for the red, yellow, and green phases. PDE plans to release additional guidelines and information in the coming weeks.
