    Dear Methacton Families,
    In just a few short weeks, the Methacton School District is scheduled to start school. I know our entire school community is anxious and eager to know exactly how we are going to start school.
    Over the past several months, I have been communicating and narrowing the options for our Board’s consideration. While we have been doing our work, we also have been recognizing that many changes are occurring around us. We have seen several updates to recommendations from health experts that contradict previous recommendations. We have also received updates from our County and the Pennsylvania Department of Education that further limit our potential options. More recently, we are seeing many of our neighboring districts release plans for a full virtual start for their students.
    Because this situation is extremely fluid, I am recommending for the Board’s consideration that we push back the student start date to September 8, 2020, in addition to laying out all the options for the Board to consider in a reopening of our schools at our meeting tonight at 7:00 PM.
    Dr. David Zerbe
    Superintendent of Schools
