UPSD COVID-19 Data

The Upper Perkiomen School District considers the health and well-being of our students, staff, and community to be of the utmost importance. It is with that in mind that we share this information with our school community. The chart below shows the number of active positive cases of COVID-19 among students and staff of the Upper Perkiomen School District.

When the district is notified of a positive case, administrators immediately work in conjunction with the Montgomery County Office of Public Health to identify and notify individuals who may have been in close personal contact with the positive case. These individuals are required to quarantine for 14 days following the close contact designation, after which they may return to school/work provided they have not developed symptoms of COVID-19. "Close personal contact" is defined by the Montgomery County Office of Public Health as being within 6 feet of a positive case of COVID-19 for 15 or more consecutive minutes, with or without a mask. The building administration will also notify families and staff via e-mail when a positive case occurs within their school community, and the information will be posted to the table below.

Families and staff must remain vigilant and compliant with District safety protocols in order minimize the risk of disease transmission in our school community. By taking these precautions, we help protect ourselves and one another.

Remember to always:

  • STAY HOME if you do not pass the daily symptom checker and get tested if you experience any symptoms consistent with COVID-19
  • DO NOT RETURN to school while awaiting COVID-19 testing results. 
  • Wear your mask
  • Practice social-distancing
  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Follow all Montgomery County Office of Public Health Requirements as outlined below.

COVID-19 Travel Guidelines & Implications for Returning to School
Given that the in-person hybrid instructional model begins in the midst of the holiday season, which is typically a popular time for travel, we are asking our community to be aware of the travel guidelines that are currently in place, and what that could mean for our students and staff upon a return to Pennsylvania and school. Any STUDENT/STAFF member who travels to a state with a high COVID-19 rate (as outlined by the PA Department of Health), MAY NOT return to school buildings for 14 days. Individuals who do not develop symptoms of COVID-19 during the quarantine period may return to school after the 14 days [NOTE: A negative COVID-19 test DOES NOT allow the individual to return to school before the 14 days are up]. Individuals who do become symptomatic during the quarantine period must follow additional exclusion guidelines. The up-to-date list of states with high COVID-19 rates can be found here

For more detailed information on these topics, please visit the Montgomery County Office of Public Health or PA Department of Health websites. Questions about this information should be directed to the Andrea J. Farina Ed.D, Assistant Superintendent via email afarina@upsd.org or by phone 215-679-7961 ext. 2466.
