Welcome to the COVID-19 Information Hub. This site provides find direct links to COVID related information and resources for the District.
We continue to work closely with the Montgomery County Office of Public Health (MCOPH) and other agencies to guide our health and safety protocols.
DAILY SYMPTOM MONITORING
Students and staff are expected to perform daily symptom monitoring based on the information in the chart below. This should be completed prior to boarding the bus or entering any of the District’s buildings. Any student or staff who feels symptomatic during the school day should immediately report to the school nurse.
*If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, please consult with your family medical provider for evaluation and possible COVID-19 testing.
As of March 14, 2022, students and staff are not required to wear a mask while onsite in the Perkiomen Valley School District. Students and staff may wear a mask if they choose to do so. For those interested, the district can provide KN95 or KF94 masks.
About Masks/Face Coverings
“Mask/Face Covering” is defined as a covering that extends over the nose and mouth and is secured with straps to the head with ties, straps, or loops over the ears or is wrapped around the lower face. A “mask/face covering” can be made of a variety of synthetic or natural fabrics, including cotton silk, or linen, and can include a plastic face shield that covers the nose and mouth. As per the CDC, the protection afforded by a face shield alone continues to be investigated, and thus, they are not recommended for use. See: CDC’s Your Guide to Masks
Report A Positive Covid Case
To assist us in collecting data, we are asking families to report their child’s confirmed positive COVID case using the link above. Please refrain from calling the nursing office if possible. If you are seeking medical advice, we ask that you contact your child’s medical provider with questions about their health, including guidance if your child is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
About the PVSD Dashboard
In alignment with reporting to the Montgomery County Office of Public Health (MCOPH), PVSD data will be shared every Monday reflecting onsite positive COVID cases for the previous week (Saturday through Friday). For example, the data shared Monday, March 21 is reflective of Saturday, March 12 through Friday, March 18.
The information, broken down by level, includes onsite positive cases for students and staff.
