If an individual is not contacted by PA DoH and/or CV, the individual is not considered to be a close contact. Please be aware that Cumberland Valley School District has multiple employees who are certified contact tracers.

  • Close contact is defined by the CDC as anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 48 hours before the person began feeling sick until the time the patient was isolated.

  • Any student or staff member identified as a close contact will be notified by the Cumberland Valley administration or PA DoH and will be required to quarantine for up to 14 days from their last possible day of exposure.

We will continue to closely monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed. If you have questions, please contact your child’s school office or building principal.

As always, we sincerely appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Superintendent of Schools

And… don’t forget to bring a water bottle and at least two masks with you to school next week.

Thank you for your continued support of our school district. We are excited to see the students returning to school next week.
