Hollidaysburg senior high moves to virtual

HOLLIDAYSBURG ­– The Hollidaysburg Area Senior High School will move to a virtual-learning model until after Thanksgiving break.

HASD Superintendent Robert Gildea notified parents on Thursday that students will make the transition on Monday, and are to return on Dec. 1. All extracurricular activities are also suspended through this timeframe. The move to virtual learning currently only applies to the senior high school; the junior high and elementary schools will continue the hybrid-learning model.

Gildea said with more than 100 high school students quarantined, it is “nearly impossible to design and deliver effective instruction.”

Gildea advised against student gatherings and said the decision will give a 14-day “quarantine window” to those potentially exposed to the most recent case reported Wednesday.
