  • Message from the Superintendent

    December 2021


    Dear Stakeholders.

    Over the last several months the Oxford Area School District has mandated that all students, staff and visitors wear masks when on or in District facilities as per the Commonwealth mandate.  While this mandate was scheduled to be removed as of December 4, 2021, an appeal to the PA Supreme Court was made by the Commonwealth of PA and the Court granted what is essentially a stay.  This moves the date of required masking in all District property to at least December 8, 2021 and potentially beyond while we wait for a decision from the PA Supreme Court.  The requirement for school busses has not changed and in order to ride the bus, one must still be masked.

    I thank you for your patience and compliance during this period change.  A copy of the link for our plan passed in June is below.

    Estimados interesados.


    Durante los últimos meses, el Distrito Escolar del Área de Oxford ha ordenado que todos los estudiantes, el personal y los visitantes usen máscaras cuando estén en los edificios del Distrito según el mandato de la Commonwealth. Si bien este mandato estaba programado para ser eliminado a partir del 4 de Diciembre de 2021, el Estado Libre Asociado de Pensilvania presentó una apelación ante la Corte Suprema de la Autoridad Palestina y la Corte otorgó lo que es esencialmente una suspensión. Esto mueve la fecha del enmascaramiento requerido en todas las propiedades del Distrito al menos al 8 de Diciembre de 2021 y posiblemente más allá mientras esperamos una decisión de la Corte Suprema de Pensilvania. El requisito de los autobuses escolares no ha cambiado y para poder viajar en el autobús, uno aún debe estar enmascarado.

    Les agradezco su paciencia y cumplimiento durante este cambio de período. A continuación, encontrará una copia del enlace de nuestro plan aprobado en junio.

    Breaking it Down: Major Disaster Declarations

    Late last week, President Biden approved federal disaster declarations for parts of Pennsylvania. The incident period for both declarations is from August 31 – September 5, 2021, and authorizes FEMA to provide federal disaster assistance to impacted areas. Visit FEMA’s official Pennsylvania Hurricane Ida Disaster Page here.  

    About Disaster Assistance

    Federal disaster assistance from FEMA may be available for certain expenses which are not covered by insurance policies (Homeowner, Renter, Flood, etc.) or from active Voluntary Agencies/Mass Care (emergency food, shelter, clothing, medical, etc.). For counties with major disaster declarations, this can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the impact of Hurricane Ida.

    Types of Assistance

    Individual Assistance Fact Sheet - learn about these programs:

    • Mass Care and Emergency Assistance (MC/EA)
    • Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP) 
    • Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) 
    • Disaster Legal Services (DLS) 
    • Disaster Case Management (DCM) 
    • Individuals and Households Program (IHP)

    Disaster Assistance Sequence of Delivery Fact Sheet - learn about the process to receive assistance here.

    Public Assistance Fact Sheet - this is not yet available, check back for updates. Examples of this would include: 

    • Debris Removal
    • Emergency Protective Measures
    • Roads
    • Public Utilities

    Applying for Federal Assistance

    If/when your county receives a Major Disaster Declaration, you may apply online for individual assistance from FEMA or constituents may call the application phone number at 1-800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585).  

    Other Resources

    FEMA Emergency assistance alone is not designed to make those affected whole. It is important that residents explore all aid available through the federal, state, and local governments as well as through reputable non-profits. 

    In addition to your local and county governments, please find a list of organizations that FEMA has compiled.
