MEADVILLE, Pa. – The Crawford Central School District is moving to remote learning on Thursday and Friday because of two positive COVID-19 cases – one a teacher at Meadville Area High School and the other a student at First District Elementary School.
All Meadville athletic events are now postponed for the next 72 hours, including Friday’s District 10 Class 4A football semifinal between the Bulldogs and Harbor Creek.
That game has now been moved to Monday.
There was no word from District 10 as of Wednesday night about whether the Class 4A title game, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 30, would be pushed back.
The Crawford Central School District posted this message to their Facebook page late this afternoon:
“Late this afternoon, we were notified that a teacher at Meadville Area Senior High School tested positive for COVID-19. We were also notified this afternoon that a student at First District Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19.
“Out of an abundance of caution, Meadville Area Senior High School and First District Elementary School will be closed tomorrow, October 22nd and Friday, October 23rd to allow for cleaning and contact tracing.
“Students will be taught remotely for the next 2 days and should be logged onto their computers each day as if they were attending a normal school day. Meals for the next 2 days for both schools will be available for pickup from 12:00 – 1 p.m. tomorrow at Meadville Area Senior High School at door 14.”
