Here’s what Monroe County schools are doing this fall
After numerous townhall meetings, surveys, and votes, public schools in Monroe County have made final decisions regarding back-to-school plans for students during the COVID-19 era. Here is each public school district’s plan:

East Stroudsburg Area School District

The East Stroudsburg school board voted in July to have students attend school in person two days a week, skipping to the yellow phase of the Wolf Administration’s plan after public opposition to the green phase, which would allow for fives days of in-person instruction.
Students will be split into two groups, each learning online three days a week. One will attend in person on Monday and Tuesday and the other will go on Thursday and Friday, with deep cleaning taking place on Wednesday.

Stroudsburg Area School District

Stroudsburg Area School District has voted in favor of a hybrid return to school plan for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. The hybrid plan will open schools at 25% capacity on August 31 and move to 50% capacity beginning September 8.
The district is also offering an “Education Choice” plan. The plan offers parents the opportunity to choose between sending their child to school under the hybrid model two days per week, with remote learning three days per week— or to choose 100% remote learning with SASD teachers.


Pleasant Valley School District


Under the hybrid reopening plan, students will be required to mask up and social distance on the days they are in school. The anticipated back-to-school date is Aug. 31, per the PV website. In-school attendance days are determined based on the first letter of a student’s last name. All PV students will participate in distance learning on Wednesdays.

The PVSD Cyber Academy is available for any family who wishes to keep their child at home.

Pocono Mountain School District

PMSD voted to go 100% online with their return to school plan. Students will be enrolled in the Learn from Home Virtual Program and receive instruction with their regularly scheduled classes through Google Suite. The Learn from Home Virtual Program will include more structure, live instruction and more rigor than last spring, according to the PMSD website.
