April 9, 2020 Update

Dear Dallastown Area School District Families,  

This morning, Governor Tom Wolf announced that all schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year.  The governor made the decision in consultation with Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine and Secretary of Education Pedro A. Rivera in an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus during this national crisis. 

Although the
 Dallastown Area School District will remain physically closed, teaching and learning will continue with our established DASD Distance Learning Framework through the remainder of the school year. While our daily routines now look and feel different, DASD’s educational values and commitment for every student has not and will not waver.

These unprecedented circumstances call for all of us to continue our work together as a community. We understand the added responsibilities that distance learning places on our district families.  We realize distance learning experiences cannot replicate those of the day-to-day classroom, yet we are pleased with how this platform keeps our students engaged in meaningful learning.  Please know, our professional staff will continue to plan, implement, and support all students and families with distance learning educational opportunities for the remainder of this academic school year.


Based on today’s announcement, we understand there are many questions and concerns from students and families. We will continue to update you as soon as additional information is received, and decisions are made.


Joshua A. Doll, Ed.D.
