As the global spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, Avon Grove Charter School (AGCS) wants to assure you that we are committed to ensuring the safety, security and wellness of our students and staff and are taking steps to prepare for the possibility of transmission to our community. In preparation, we have been and continue to be in ongoing contact with the Chester County Health Department, have reviewed our emergency preparedness plans, and developed guidelines for addressing a possible pandemic situation in our area.

We remain vigilant in our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will communicate any changes or updates related to our preparedness plan as they occur. We want to continue to stress that families are encouraged to follow good hygiene practices and to reinforce them with their children.
