Dear Mt. Lebanon Families,

I want to thank you for your patience as we continue to refine our return to learning plans that prioritize the health and safety of our students and staff. I have some important updates to share with our families.

  • On Monday, August 10, at 7:30 p.m., the Board will discuss the instructional delivery options for the District’s reopening. The Board Discussion meeting will be held via Zoom. Information on how to access the meeting will be available at www.mtlsd.org on Monday morning.   

  • The timeline to commit to the Mt. Lebanon Cyber Learning Academy will remain open until the School Board has confirmed a decision on the return to school. Once that decision is publicly voted on, the process will close at 4 pm the following day.  Here is the link to the Cyber Academy Form.

I also want to thank you for sharing your feedback regarding our Health and Safety Plan and our Reopening Education Plan. We have updated our FAQ with answers to the questions that have been asked most frequently over the past few weeks. 

I realize these are difficult and trying times for families.  I am grateful to be part of a community that recognizes the importance of carefully planning for the health and safety of our students and staff.  

Sincerely,

Dr. Timothy Steinhauer
