Increase in COVID-19 cases causes Allegheny County school’s switch to remote learning

PITTSBURGH — Dickson Preparatory STEAM Academy in the Woodland Hills School District will be moving to virtual learning on Wednesday.

Superintendent James Harris said the school will be going virtual for 10 days, between Wednesday and Sept. 24, and will return to in-person instruction on Sept. 27.

“There have been a few cases of COVID among the teachers and we are taking a ‘time-out’ from in-person instruction to make sure everyone remains well,” Harris said in a statement.

All extracurricular events will still be occurring as scheduled.
