Board Approves All-virtual Start to 2020-2020 School Year

By a vote of 8-1, the Lower Merion Board of School Directors has approved a Health and Safety Plan for reopening for the 2020-2021 school year. Under the plan, school will start fully virtual on Sept. 8, 2020, through at least October 5, 2020, with an ultimate goal of a safe return to in-person instruction.

The Administration will work toward providing safe in-person orientation opportunities for students transitioning into new schools to the extent possible, and will work toward providing in-person instructional opportunities for students with identified needs.

Additionally, the District will continue to meet with local childcare providers and community stakeholders to strategize on ways to help students' and staff families meet childcare needs during remote instruction.
