As of now, students at Allegheny-Clarion Valley School District in Foxburg, Clarion County, will return to fall classes on the normal, five-day schedule.
The school board voted on June 24 to approve a district health and safety plan to lay out what school will look like and what safety measures will be taken when classes return at summer's end.
A-C Valley includes Allegheny Township in Butler County as well as parts of Armstrong, Clarion and Venango counties.
David McDeavitt, A-C Valley superintendent, said the district will use Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act funds to add personnel to ramp up cleaning and sanitizing during the school day.
Teachers will use district-provided sanitizing spray to disinfect keyboards, desks and other high-touch surfaces in their classrooms in between sessions, the plan states.
