I hope that your children are having a great start to the school year.  Last week I was excited to see so much enthusiasm as our students returned to school.  Hopefully, that excitement and enthusiasm will carry us through some of the challenges we are facing.

This summer, we have received a substantial amount of change in the guidance and recommendations for the upcoming school year from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
