PA schools reopen, but parents still concerned

PA schools have reopened and many families are back in school after the closure of a school, but some parents still have questions about the shutdown.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education said Monday it would reopen and maintain the schools that have been closed, but that some families were still concerned about the closings and could be subject to additional closures.

The schools reopened on Monday after a judge ruled that the PA Department of Public Instruction failed to provide notice to the families and students of the school closers before closing them.

Officials say the closure did not affect students’ educational needs or school-related activities.

The PA Department says it has not determined what type of closure will take place for students, but said it will keep students and staff in the district to provide an orderly and safe learning environment.

It also announced plans to provide financial support for families impacted by the closure, as well as other financial assistance.
