• COVID-19 DASHBOARD | Updated Regularly

    The Catasauqua Area School District is committted to providing transparency to the number of confirmed cases ocurring daily in our district.  We have created a COVID-19 Positive Cases Dashboard for the community to monitor the positive cases that are reported to us.  Our district will continue to work closely with our local and state organizations and will use the most current guidelines when making decisions.

     Health & Safety Protocols                                                                                                          
    Catasauqua Area School District will comply with all CDC, United States                                    
    Department of Health and Pennsylvania Department of Health orders and/or
    mandates. To the greatest extent feasible, Catasauqua Area School District will
    implement the recommendations outlined by the Centers for Disease Control
    and the recommendations of the PA Department of Education and PA
    Department of Health and will implement core essential and mitigation
    strategies in order to prioritize the health and safety of all students and staff.

    School nurses will advise students, teachers, and staff to stay home if they are
    sick or if they have been exposed to COVID-19. Additionally, school nurses will
    encourage these individuals to talk to their healthcare provider(s) about
    getting a COVID-19 test.

    Catasauqua Area School District school nursing staff will continue to notify the
    Pennsylvania Department of Health immediately upon learning that a person
    with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 is present at the school or a
    school event while infectious. The District will work collaboratively with the PA
    Department of Health staff on matters related to risk assessment, isolation
    and quarantine recommendations, and other infection control
    recommendations.

    Transportation
    Per the CDC’s order, masks are required to be worn by passengers and drivers
    on school buses. Catasauqua Area School District will physically distance
    children on buses when possible. If feasible, bus windows will be open to
    improve ventilation.
