Derry Township School District plans to move back to their in-person hybrid schedule starting on Tuesday, January 19th.

Superintendent Joe McFarland released an update on the DTSD website informing families they intend to move forward with their plan of reopening the classrooms for middle and high school students on Thursday, January 14, 2021. The District asks that students remain six feet apart when possible, wear their masks correctly and at all times on campus, and stay home if not feeling well. 

“We very much look forward to seeing our secondary students back in the buildings during the days they are assigned for in-person instruction” McFarland said in the released statement. Students will be returning to the hybrid alphabetical scheduling used at the start of the year.

The District claims they will continue to monitor the COVID-19 trends in both the area and the building. “We will continue to hold the health and safety of all on our campus as our highest priority” said McFarland.

The District had been running under a fully virtual schedule since November 12th due to COVID-19 restrictions.
