Pittsburgh Public Schools To Move To Remote Learning On Election Day

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Pittsburgh Public Schools has announced that they will move to remote learning on Election Day.

Students will learn from home on both Tuesday, November 2 as well as Tuesday, May 17.

35 Pittsburgh Public School buildings will host polling places for citizens on both days.

"With the COVID-19 pandemic remaining strong within our communities, it would be irresponsible to have students in buildings, especially when we cannot mandate mask-wearing and ensure adequate social distancing and school security in our facilities," the district said in a message to families.

Before the November 2 Election Day, the district will provide all students with the devices needed for at-home learning.
