MILL HALL – Some schools in the Keystone Central School District will be going remote.
Starting tomorrow (Thursday, Jan. 13), Bucktail High School, Central Mountain High School and Central Mountain Middle School will close, with students going to online learning.
The word came in a news release from KCSD superintendent Jacquelyn Martin. It said:
“Due to the rising number of positive cases of Covid-19 in our secondary schools, as of today we have reached the threshold of 5% of cases among students and staff at Bucktail High School and Central Mountain High School. Central Mountain Middle School is currently at 4% and awaiting test results for many others. All elementary schools are currently at 3% or lower for total cases. The PA Department of Health recommends full remote learning when the 5% threshold is reached.
As of Thursday, January 13, 2022, we will be closing Bucktail High School (7-12), Central Mountain High School (9-12) and Central Mountain Middle School (5-8).
We will close for a minimum of five days with an expected return on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.”
