Galeton Area School District Addresses Mask Mandate Adherence

Dear Galeton Area School District Community 

This letter is to thank everyone for their adherence to the mask mandate that was put into place last week. I know this issue is very controversial and some want the mask and others do not. Since the time the mask mandate was put into place, school districts across the Commonwealth, including the Galeton Area School District were informed of the consequences of not following the mandate. I want to go on record stating that we are following the mask mandate as stated in my September 3rd letter to the community. I have seen some recent headlines stating that we are not following the mandate and that is incorrect. We are accepting exceptions to the order as outlined in Section 3 of the mandate order.  

I also want to take this time to remind the community that masks are required during any events inside of the building. Masks are required for entrance into the building for visitor purposes or for athletic events. They are not needed for outside events such as soccer. Please be sure to bring a mask with you when you are in attendance at our events inside of the building. All players, coaches, spectators, and officials must adhere to the mandate. Again, I realize this is causing an emotional response for so many, but I would ask that you think about the student athletes who are getting to have a season in front of their fans this year. If you happen to forget a mask, we will be glad to give you one at the door.  

As of the writing of this letter, the Galeton Area School District has three positive cases and 23 individuals in quarantine. Many of those quarantined individuals will be back in the building tomorrow leaving us with eight individuals remaining in quarantine. Many individuals are being tested each day so these numbers can change from one day to the next. I will continue to keep the community updated as we see the rise and fall of case numbers in our school.  

I realize this is a very stressful time for so many but I ask that we all work together to make sure our students can remain in school for as much of the school year as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  

Sincerely,
Alanna R. Huck 

Superintendent 

Galeton Area School District

At last, a responsible school administrator. Mrs. Huck and Mr. Jones at Northern Potter continue to rise above the BS and show courage, leadership and a true concern for public health and the welfare of our children. PS: How long will it take for the uneducated and misinformed to start giving her crap. I would guess just a matter of minutes.

If you want your kid to wear a mask then send them with one. Otherwise, mind your business and get vaccinated.

Did you happen for forget to mention that there is a school board meeting tonight, Tuesday to address this situation! I assume that the public is invited to attend school board meetings since every property owner pays school taxes.

Please understand they may not agree with the mask mandate but they need to enforce. What are you teaching your children they dint have to follow the rules.
