Local News

CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Greater Johnstown School district has pushed their first day back to September 9, 2020.

The first day was initially scheduled for August 27. The change in the calendar was approved at the district’s school board meeting this week.

The district said in a release that more information for parent who chose full-time in class learning will be sent out as soon as possible.

Superintendent Amy Arcurio says the delay will help them be ready for anything.

“All options are on the table because we recognize that this situation could change in a moments notice and we have to be prepared to either welcome students back to our classroom, but if we need to just lock down and go virtual we’re able to do that as well.”

Faculty and staff will report for their first day on August 28.
