• Pocono Mountain School District Prepares for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

    Pocono Mountain School District (PMSD) has processes and procedures in place to respond to, manage, and stop the spread of infectious illnesses that could impact its students, staff and schools. District officials are actively monitoring all PA Department of Health (DOH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) information and updates related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

    The District has a direct point-of-contact with the DOH who helps guide its efforts if there is a health issue or concern. The District coordinates with health experts on the appropriate steps to take when it comes to parent and public notification, cleaning and sanitizing of schools, and any other measures to prevent, reduce, or contain the spread of any communicable and/or infectious illnesses. 

    PMSD custodians implemented the CDC’s recommendations for flu season and pandemic flu situations at the start of the regular flu season and continue those measures daily. Custodians implemented the daily cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and objects to include, but not limited to, desk and table tops, doorknobs and push bars, light switches, water fountains, and all bathroom surfaces. Custodians use a hospital grade disinfectant that is rated to kill human Corona class viruses.
