With the days becoming more and more limited before the arrival of the Coronavirus in Allegheny County, the Avonworth School District has released a statement about what they will be doing next. With an extensive email sent out to the district, describing safety and cleanliness precautions being taken within all three schools, they also added that  Dr. Ralston will be meeting with the Secretary of Education in Pennsylvania and the Health Department on what the district should do next. This online call will take place Friday morning, March 13th, and a statement should be released within the next few days about what will happen next.

At this moment, the school has been approved for five FID days by the state. Additional FID days will most likely be a topic of conversation with the state, but more information is to come. FID days or flexible instruction days, are lesson plans set in place by teachers with the possibility of cancellation.
