School Closure Update (3/23)

The Pennsylvania Department of Education announced today all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed until at least Thursday, April 9th. As such, Wellsboro schools will remain closed with the anticipated return of students being Thursday, April 9th. There will be further updates coming.


  1. Why not extend it to April 15th as the return date, Friday April 10th is good Friday and then Easter break. I know that if we are off "lockdown" come that time we will be with Family visiting. This social distancing is hard on family and we will want that holiday to come together. I don't think going to school for that 1 day is going to be of any benefit.

    1. As I understand it, that's the date PDE set as the expected return date for students. It is an odd choice with most, if not all, schools across the state having at least Good Friday off, but it is what it is. If we choose to cancel that day, we would be forced to make it up, so we would lose the 14th as make up day anyway. I know we're hoping not to have to make up these days we're mandated being closed, but I'm not certain which way that will fall as I haven't been in those conversations.

School Closure Update (3/27)

A few announcements from the Wellsboro Area School District:
Beginning Monday, teachers will be posting structured enrichment and practice activities for students to each school’s website. Visit on Monday for links to everything. Parents also either have been or will be called to get specifics on Internet access or the need for materials to be sent home. If your child receives Special Education, Gifted or Chapter 504 services, please be on the lookout for information being mailed home from our Special Education Department next week. We will be continuing to provide free Grab and Go Lunches for our students next week. The schedule will be the same as this week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from noon-2:00pm and 4:30-6:00pm and can be picked up from either the Wellsboro Fire Hall Annex or the Nypum Drive entrance of the Truck-Lite parking lot. Thank you!
