Coronavirus Updates (COVID-19)

During this time, we can all understand how difficult it is to be a parent, student, community member and/or educator. Inevitably, there will be rumors and possibly inaccurate information within the community and on social media.  
 
The District is receiving updated information from the Pennsylvania Department of Education who is collaborating with the Department of Health, the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, county municipal health departments and others to ensure the most current and accurate information and resources are available for our school district. 

Utilize this webpage as your source for timely and accurate district Information. We will make resources available and information will be updated through this page. In addition, the Skylert Messaging system, as well as local media outlets will be utilized as necessary.
 
We will be in direct contact with parents, students, and district employees with timely and accurate information when it becomes available. 

March 12, 2021 Update
 
Wilkes-Barre Area School District Community,
 
Based on the local conditions of a Moderate Transmission Rate within Luzerne County, the District 
will resume in-person instruction for 7-12 Students who elected to be in option 1 on Monday, March 15th  , 2021.

The public health metrics are accessible on the interactive COVID-19 Early Warning Monitoring System Dashboard, which is updated every Friday. 

We understand how important it is to have in-person classes resume and we are very excited for this opportunity again..  

I want to thank our students and our staff for always wearing appropriate face coverings, social distancing, and following our district guidelines.  This allowed us and will continue to allow us to resume in person instruction.
  
Again, I appreciate your cooperation and flexibility during these unprecedented times. 
 
Thank you,
 
Brian Costello
