Friday, March 13, Gov. Tom Wolf announced that all K-12 Pennsylvania schools will be closed for two weeks, effective Monday, March 16. This changes our original plan to make week-to-week decisions on our school closure. Schools will now be closed until March 30. At this time, all days will be added to the end of the school calendar.

In the Keystone Central School District, the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff is our utmost concern. We will be in touch as we assess this new information and our plans come together.

We are in ongoing communication and consultation with the following organizations that are experts in emergency preparedness and crisis management:

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

PA Department of Health

PEMA
