IMG_2823RIMERSBURG, Pa. (EYT) – The Union School Board approved a minor change to the district’s health and safety plan during their Thursday night meeting.

That change was language to add on which agency’s COVID-19 recommendations the district would follow.

“Essentially, the only thing that changed from the last plan was we are listing the DOH or the CDC as far as guidance,” said Union Superintendent Dr. John Kimmel.

Kimmel explained this was the only change to the plan as it is written in such a way that allows the board to only make minor variations to it from time to time.
