Current Plan for Fall 2020 (As of July 30, 2020)

Winchester Thurston School is committed to reuniting our community following the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Allegheny County Health Department, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the National Association of Independent Schools, and the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools. Due to the nature of the pandemic, this health and safety plan will be flexible and adaptable to the changing condition, science, research, and requirements and will thus need to be continually reviewed and revised. This health and safety plan provides guidelines for all instructional and non-instructional school reopening activities.

Depending upon the public health conditions in Allegheny County there could be additional actions, orders, or guidance provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and/or the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) designating the county as being in the red, yellow, or green phase and requiring changes to the plan and implementation.
