Thanksgiving and Virtual Learning Letter
November 20, 2020 


Dear South Side Families:


This week the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH) determined that Beaver County’s level of community transmission of Covid-19 has been considered “substantial” for two consecutive weeks. As a result of this, it has been recommended by the PA Secretary of Health and the Department of Education that South Side Area School District operate virtually. At this time, South Side Area School District will begin virtual learning on Tuesday, December 1st and continue virtual operations through Friday, December 11th. We are hopeful that Beaver County cases will drop below the substantial category during this time and we can resume in-person classes on Monday, December 14th. As we progress through these next few weeks, please be on the lookout for further communication.

early dismissal Early dismissal time for students
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Due to the later start time this year for our students, early dismissal times will also be adjusted. To provide our students with more instructional time, dismissal times will now be pushed back an hour. The district's first early dismissal is Wednesday, Sept. 30th.  Middle and High School students will be dismissed at 1:00pm, and Elementary students will be dismissed at 1:30pm. This time change will be in effect for the 2020-2021 school year.
