Updated COVID-19 Information


August 19, 2022
Dear School District of Philadelphia Students and Families,
The first day of school is just 10 days away! We are truly excited to welcome our students, families and staff to the 2022-23 school year, which starts on Monday, August 29. If you haven’t yet seen our back-to-school ad on television, you can watch it here.

Here are a few reminders to help you prepare for a successful start to the school year:

●  Health & Safety Protocols – as shared last week, all students and staff will be required to wear masks while indoors in school for the first 10 days of the new school year – from August 29 through September 9 – regardless of the COVID-19 Community Level. This is an extra precaution for everyone’s health and well-being since increased end-of-summer social gatherings may heighten the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Masking may then become optional under specific circumstances. You can visit our COVID-19 Information Hub to register for an upcoming Health and Safety Town Hall, access a what-to-do quick guide for families and read the General COVID-19 Protocols for SY2022-2023.
