Return to School 2020-21

Introduction and Overview of Plan Development

The Mt. Lebanon School District is thoughtfully working to create return to learning plans, strategies, and approaches that prioritize the health and safety of our students and staff. In this current COVID environment, we all realize that a return to learning and teaching will look differently no matter how we reopen. 

Our District Recovery Steering Committee began work in April to identify the many important aspects that would need to be addressed. The Recovery Steering Committee was informed by four subcommittees. Over 100 teachers, custodians, secretaries, parents, principals, nurses, counselors, students, transportation providers, administrators, and school board members contributed to the work. 

In addition the Health and Safety Plan was created with guidance from the Allegheny County Health Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Mt. Lebanon School Board.
