Dear Quaker Valley:
The Board and Administration appreciate the heartfelt concern and compassion being expressed by members of our community regarding the health and safety of staff members as schools reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We share your concerns, and we treasure each member of our faculty and staff. They are what make Quaker Valley School District such a special place. Personnel issues are sensitive. We are working through each situation to determine the gentle balance necessary to ensure their care and safety, while also continuing to deliver the world-class education offered at QV.
The Board and Administration have developed and implemented extensive safety measures and accommodations to address important health concerns of those in the school community. Those efforts will continue.
We are working through each accommodation request that we have received from staff members, and this interactive process is still underway. In updating the start date of our school year, we have created additional time for the evaluation of each request made to our District.
We are working to bring each matter to an appropriate resolution as soon as possible. The Board and Administration care about each member of our community, and we want to ensure the health and safety of all. Our top priority as a leadership team is to do everything possible to support our Quaker Valley families and staff so that we can learn, teach, and work in a safe and healthy environment.
Thank you for your collective efforts, flexibility, and patience as we move forward.
The Quaker Valley Administration and School Board
