The Juniata County School District would like to update the community of our plans for the reopening of the 21-22 school year. We are happy to announce our plan to reopen schools with a full time in person schedule. In addition, students attending in person instruction will not be required to wear face coverings in the school buildings. Furthermore, we have partnered with the TIU #11 to expand our virtual course catalog beyond Odysseyware. We feel this increase of offerings will better meet student needs. If you prefer your child to receive virtual learning next year, please contact your home school’s office for additional information. The district will not be able to offer a full schedule of HRE type classes for the upcoming school year. We cannot wait to welcome our students back for an exciting new year. We are also reminding families, the district may be required to make changes according to any new state or federal mandates.
