Welcome Letter

sealWelcome Message From Dr. Fegley

The 2020-2021 school year has started different than any other school year.  It has started in a way that we did not want.  We had all hoped we would be back in the buildings full time.  Just like the past.  But, Phoenixville Area School District is making the very best out of a difficult situation.  Phoenixville is rising and will continue to rise, with grit and determination.  Our goal is to return to the buildings and give those the option who want to stay home, to learn virtually.  

Our return to the buildings will need to be thoughtful, not rushed.  We will need to take all of the learning from around the commonwealth, nation and world, and use that learning as our guide.  Our return to the building will most likely be incremental.  Possibly with several classes or a grade level returning, working on refining the process and then bringing more students back to the building. 

The exact path is yet unknown.  The Pandemic Team is working through what the metrics for a return will be and what final protocols need to be in place.  Then as we learn more we will work and change the protocols to meet the needs of Phoenixville.

I thank all for your care, support, understanding, grit, determination and patience.  By working together we will be back in the building, with the goal of staying in the building once back.

I look forward to this challenging year and hope you do as well.  Again it is not what we wanted, but Phoenixville will make it the best it can be.  Thank you for all you are doing.

Together We Can
Together We Will
Together We Are Phoenixville

Superintendent of Schools
