Dear Gettysburg Area School District Community:
We hope your family had a fantastic summer and are excited to welcome everyone back as we embark on the 2022-2023 school year. As a reminder, the first day of school for students is scheduled for Monday, August 22, 2022.
Friday, September 2nd: Professional Development (No School for Students)
Monday, September 5th: Labor Day Holiday (No School for Students/Staff)
We hope all students are eager to return for instruction next week and are looking forward to the many opportunities available in our schools. For students that utilize district transportation, busing information can be found through Family Access in Skyward.
We were thankful to be open for in-person instruction every day last year and will be opening the '22-'23 school without any mandated restrictions. The district will continue an enhanced cleaning regimen and will continue to support effective hygiene practices in all of our buildings.
The district will no longer be contact tracing and will no longer provide quarantine recommendations related to Covid. We ask that you seek the advice of your healthcare professional related to illness. In general, if you are experiencing symptoms of illness, please remain at home.
Safety remains a priority, thus we will continue with our safety protocols in the coming year. As a reminder, our external building doors remain locked and our offices have a single point of entry. We appreciate your cooperation with our entry protocols for anyone visiting our buildings.
Updated information and communications are always archived on the district website.
Thank you for your continued trust and support as we prepare for the ‘22-’23 school year. See you all soon!
Jason Perrin, D.Ed.
