Williams Valley Families,
The district office was notified at approximately 10:30 PM Sunday, February 28, 2021 of a confirmed positive COVID case at the elementary school. PA Department of Health (DOH) was contacted early Monday morning and contact tracing began. Initial guidance from the PA DOH was to follow the normal protocol after a confirmed positive was reported. The district began quarantining students and staff.
Following an additional conversation with the PA Department of Health, the report was elevated to the PA DOH Epidemiology Team and then to the PA DOH Clinical Team. As more information became available and after further investigation throughout the morning, by both the district and the PA Department of Health, the district was notified by the PA Department of Health Clinical Team who determined the case, based on the additional information provided, was a persistent positive and deemed it safe for students and staff to return to school tomorrow, Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
As COVID information continually evolves, each case must be examined individually to ensure everyone’s safety. Your patience and understanding are appreciated.

Williams Valley Families,
Please be advised, at the February 11, 2021, Williams Valley School Board meeting, the Board of Education voted to revise the WVSD Health and Safety Plan to allow instructional mode (synchronous, asynchronous, in-person) changes to occur only at the end of each marking period. Originally a one week notice was needed by a parent/guardian to change instructional modes. Requests other than at the end of the marking period must be accompanied by documentation of medical necessity, the need to quarantine, or an individualized educational plan (IEP). This revision is effective February 12, 2021. Requests submitted prior to February 12, 2021 will be honored.
