School Buildings Closed Until End of School Year

On April 9, 2020, the PA Secretary of Education announced the closing of all K-12 PA Schools for the remainder of the year. Continuity of education is still to proceed, and this means that  schools will continue with remote/online instruction.

OLVCS will finish the school year with the remote/online learning program that we have in place.  Additional details on how the end of year will unfold will be forthcoming. 

Below is the message from Secretary Rivera: 

This morning, I issued an order under Act 13 of 2020 to close all public schools through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year, as defined by the local school calendar.

Additionally, Governor Wolf is ordering all K-12 schools and programs, public and private, to be closed through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year. Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts, Head Start Supplemental Assistance Programs and Preschool Early Intervention programs will also remain closed, and institutions of higher education are prohibited from offering in-person instruction.

All of these decisions were made in consultation with the Secretary of Health, based on the most recent information regarding COVID-19 as it relates to the health, safety, and welfare of students, school staff, and communities.
