Covid-19 Rolling 14-Day Window Update

Hi Parents,

In an effort to reduce the number of phone calls you receive from the Huntingdon Area School District, we have decided to post weekly Covid-19 updates, every Thursday evening, to our webpage. This will make the information on the number of our positive cases and close contacts available to the general public without numerous alerts and phone calls home.

Here are the numbers for our current 14-Day window.

HASD Student Face Covering Exemption

This message involves the masking mandate implemented by Governor Wolf and the PADOH.  If your child has a documented medical or mental health condition or disability that precludes the wearing of a face covering while on the bus and at school, and you are requesting an exemption from this requirement, you must submit an exemption request form that can be found on the Huntingdon Area School District website.  A section of this form must be completed by your child’s health care provider.  With that being said, according to the CDC, mask-wearing students will not need to quarantine if exposed to a student who tests positive for COVID-19, if both students were properly masked.  We appreciate your cooperation in helping us to provide a safe environment for your children.

A note on masks: Inter-State Studio photographers and reps will follow the mask policy in place at your school.  For student pictures, please note we rely on parent volunteers or school employees to ensure each child is ready to have their picture taken and has their mask removed if they feel comfortable. Our photographers may simply ask one time, “Would you like to take off the mask for your portrait?”

Vaccination Clinic Available

The Huntingdon Area School District is conducting a survey to determine if it is feasible to conduct an on-site vaccination clinic for students.  Anyone who wishes to get their child/children a Covid-19 vaccination can register by clicking the link below.
