The District will implement mandatory masking upon return from winter break, from Jan. 3-13, in an effort to be proactive in helping maintain healthy environments for in-person learning. This is the general COVID-19 protocol that was shared in August. This measure is intended to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses in school, reduce absenteeism and prioritize in-person learning after the winter break.
District employees, students, and families can pick up free at-home COVID-19 test kits at our five school-based testing locations while supplies last. SDP testing locations will be closed on December 26 and January 2 in observance of the federal holidays. Testing locations, the most updated COVID-19 data, and more information can be found on the District’s COVID-19 Information Hub, which is available at philasd.org.
