Arecent article by Patch reports that Pittsburgh Public Schools Adopt 2021-22 COVID-19 Safety Plan, this plan consists of implementing mandatory safety measures to prevent contagion.

The new safety plan requires anyone who plans to be in any Pittsburgh Public Schools building to wear a mask. This COVID-19 school safety plan, that requires students, teachers, staff, and visitors to wear a mask when in any Pittsburgh school building, was unanimously endorsed by district directors on July 29. When playing sports outside, however, students will not be required to wear masks.

The safety plan is in line with new CDC recommendations announced on July 27, which call for everyone in school facilities to wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.

Another safety measure required in this COVID-19 school safety plan is 3 feet of social distancing between students and 6 feet of social distancing between adults in classrooms, where possible.

Also, schools should be cleaned in the evenings and buildings will continue to have safety signage up.

With roughly 25,000 students in pre-kindergarten through Grade 12, the Pittsburgh Public School District is the largest of Allegheny County's 43 school districts and the second largest in Pennsylvania.

August 25 is the opening day of school for pupils in grades 1-8, 9 and 12. Kindergarten will begin on August 30 and grades 10 and 11 will begin on August 25.
