November 25, 2020 Attention Parents and Guardians:
We were notified on November 23, 2020 by the PA Department of Health (DOH) and the PA Department of Education (PDE) that due to Fayette County now being in the “Substantial Category” for COVID-19 transmittals it is recommended that all schools in Fayette County transition to 100% remote learning while in the substantial category for two consecutive weeks. It was also recommended that we remain in the remote learning model until the county transitions into the “Moderate Category” for COVID-19 transmittals for two consecutive weeks. 
Please be aware that the Albert Gallatin Area School District will transition to full remote learning on December 1, 2020 and continue in the remote learning model, tentatively, until Friday, December 11, 2020. Teachers and students will follow the remote schedule that was utilized during the first four weeks of the 2020-21 school year. The District will still hold “virtual” parent teacher conferences on December 1st. We plan to return to our current model of “in-person instruction” on Monday, December 14, 2020 should the county have two consecutive weeks of data in the “Moderate Category”. However, should we need to remain in remote learning longer than December 11th we will give plenty of advanced notice and continue to keep you informed. Please check the district website daily for any updates and to receive the latest information.   As previously stated, we have been and will continue to stay in close communication with the Pennsylvania Department of Health throughout this COVID-19 Pandemic and will continue to follow all guidance from the DOH and PDE.
