The Pennsylvania Dept of Health issued updated guidelines Friday after school regarding isolation and quarantine. This will affect anyone that has been exposed to a positive case of covid in the home and anyone who was slated to return to school on Monday from quarantine. Please visit the News section on the WB website or in the WBCSD app for more information on this updated guidance. As always, we thank you for your cooperation during these trying times.

Dear Families, Western Beaver School District has become aware of a troubling post that has been shared widely this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17. The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district. We have heard reports from other districts that the same post is circulating in their schools. While we do not believe the threat to be credible, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it seriously. Additionally, the district has been in contact with the Beaver and Ohioville Police Departments regarding the post. We may have an increased police presence in and around our buildings on Friday as an added precaution. This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult right away. As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students.

On December 10, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court struck down the Acting Secretary of Health’s school masking order. The guidance provided to districts is that they should follow their approved Health and Safety Plan. As students and families consider whether to mask, you should take into consideration the county transmission level and the percent positivity at this time. Information regarding Pennsylvania county transmission rates and percent positivity can be found below: https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Monitoring-Dashboard.aspx Western Beaver’s approved Health and Safety Plan can be found below: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1391001/Approved_Plan_July_14_2021.pdf Additionally, students and families are reminded that districts are still required to conduct contact tracing, exclude from school any student/staff that are, based on CDC and PA DoH definition, deemed to be in close contact to positive cases. Students and families are also reminded that the lifting of Pennsylvania’s masking order does not lift the federal masking order requiring all passengers on public transportation are to be properly masked.

November 11, 2021 - Masking Update There has been a great deal of activity in the courts and through the Governor’s Office this week regarding the August 31, 2021, Acting Secretary of Health Order requiring masking in schools. Earlier this week, Governor Wolf announced that the state mask mandate for schools would be lifted effective January 17, 2022, and that the decision on masking would be returned to local school districts. Today, the Commonwealth Court ruled that the mask mandate issued by the Acting Secretary of Health on August 31, 2021 was void. Although this would legally end the state mandate on school masking effective immediately, the Governor has filed an appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court challenging the Commonwealth Court Ruling. Due to laws surrounding the appeal process, the current mandate will stay in effect until the Pennsylvania Supreme Court provides further information. Consequently, masking will remain in effect until further guidance is provided.

Dear Western Beaver Families, As we move further into the school year, we are experiencing supply chain difficulties like never before. While we are still able to provide meals to all students, we must move forward with a great deal of flexibility. The best step that I can think of to help avoid unexpected menu changes is to change to releasing a weekly menu, instead of a monthly menu. Just like at home, planning for a month’s worth of meals at once is proving to be more challenging. We are trying to focus on providing items that are reasonably and consistently available, which may mean more repetition or a real curveball at times. We may be more vague on the offerings. For example, if the menu lists “carrots” that may mean baby carrots, steamed carrots, or diced carrots. Additionally, the menu may simply list “vegetables” and we will provide the vegetable we are able to procure. This will be applicable to any of the menu items we offer. Luckily, the cafeteria staff is very experienced with the foods many of the students enjoy and prefer. We will make every effort to keep those items in rotation. The new menu will be released on Fridays for the upcoming week, beginning on October 1. The menus will be posted on the website, in the app, and on the parent social media pages. Thank you for your patience and willingness to be flexible as we try to navigate this very unorthodox time. Brooke Stebick, Food Services Director
