Semester Two Learning Options

Parents and Guardians, 

We hope everyone is safe and healthy. From January 11th to January 15th the District will provide an opportunity for parents and guardians to modify their child’s learning option for the second semester.  

The learning options include; 

Option 1, traditional in-person instruction.

Option 2, remote/distancing learning.

Option 3, the Wilkes-Barre Area Cyber Academy.  

Please note, if you want your child to remain in their current option, no action needs to be taken.  

If you would like to change your child’s option or for additional information, please contact the school between the hours of 8am-3:30pm by calling 570-826-7224.

Option 1 students will return to in-person instruction when local conditions allow, following all recommendations from the PA Department of Education, and the Department of Health.  

No changes will be made after 3:30 pm on Friday, January 15th, 2021.

Again, if you want your child to remain in their current option, no action needs to be taken.
