UPDATE: March 24th 2020. As of yesterday, March 23rd, Gov. Wolf has issued a stay-at-home order for Allegheny county. We expect this will extend the delay before classes resume.
The Allegheny County Health Department has issued a recommendation for non-essential businesses to close for the coming 2 weeks. Beginning Monday, March 16th all classes will be postponed for 2 weeks.
Classes will resume when able. No material will be missed or excluded, as additional dates will be added to make up for the cancelled sessions.
Thank you for understanding.
