What is the difference between allergies, the flu, and coronavirus?

The info above helps describe the signs and symptoms to help you communicate with your primary care physician.


If your child demonstrates any of these symptoms, please reach out to your doctor for guidance specific to your family.

  • Use tele-health or virtual medical services if available to you


As always, if your child has a fever please keep them home for at least 24 hours after their temperature returns to normal.


Prevention is KEY!


  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently
  • Cover your mouth/nose when sneezing
  • Clean high touch surfaces (doors, counters, table tops, phones, remote controls, etc.) with alcohol based sanitizers
  • Social distancing (ie. limit close personal contact) with others
  • When you feel sick, stay home and rest

Message from Superintendent Mehalick

Dear Crestwood Families,


I hope each of you are doing well and adjusting to our current situation.


The Crestwood School District, in accordance with Governor Wolf’s order to close all non-life sustaining business in Pennsylvania, is adjusting building access to our three campuses.

Governor Wolf has taken the more aggressive action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.


Therefore, Rice and Fairview Elementary Campuses will be closed. No access to these buildings or campuses will be available at all until further notice.


The secondary campus will be open for essential personnel only. Specifically, food service, Crestwood School Police, and myself will be present on the secondary campus.


I appreciate the cooperation and the patience of our CSD family and look forward to sharing more information regarding the state of education in the Crestwood School District as soon as more is available.


I ask each of you to stay positive, calm, and do something fun with your family each day. We are all Comet Proud and Comet strong.


Have a wonderful weekend and if you need anything from me or our district please reach out to us.


Thank you,

Bob
