Message from the Superintendent

August 17, 2022

Dear Abington School Community,

I hope this finds you and your family well and enjoying these summer days. Get ready for the best school year ever! The Green Wave grades 1-12 return to school on Wednesday, August 31, 2022. Our littlest Waves or Early Education and Kindergarteners begin on September 6, 2022.

At this time, we do not anticipate additional COVID mitigation requirements beyond those at the conclusion of the last school year. Abington classrooms will function the way they did pre-COVID. Individuals are still encouraged to test for COVID at the first signs of illness and stay home when not feeling well. Handwashing and good hygiene practices like coughing into your elbow will continue to be emphasized. Anyone who prefers to mask at school will be supported in this choice.

Getting ready for a successful opening of school takes time and careful preparation. Summers are busy and the administrative assistants, custodians, maintenance, technology staff, transportation personnel, and administrators have all been working hard. Their work so that our students can get started in the best way possible is sincerely appreciated. Get ready for the best school year ever!

On behalf of the incredible team of educators and support staff who serve the students in the Abington Public Schools, thank you for putting your trust in us to provide your children with an exciting environment in which to receive a world-class education. We look forward to working with you throughout the year to ensure the success of all our students.


Peter Schafer
