Updated School Registration Information

From the Upper Darby School District Website:

Student Registration

Due to the concerning outbreaks of communicable illnesses such as Ebola, Influenza, and Enterovirus D68, the Upper Darby School District is taking note of the guidelines of the CDC, PA Dept. of Health, and Delaware County Ebola and Infectious Disease Task Force and is instituting the following precautions to protect the health and welfare of our school community:
  • Students seeking admission to the school district who last resided or have traveled from outside of the country must produce a passport/visa to confirm the date of entry into the country.  Those coming from countries highly affected by the Ebola outbreak will be asked to be in the country for 21 days (the virus’s incubation period according to the CDC) before being admitted into school.
  • Current UDSD students who travel outside of the country will be evaluated on a case by case basis.  Parents should provide travel information to the school principal and should notify the school and provide a doctor’s note if the student returns from travel with a fever or any other sign of illness. 
The district’s response may change as recommendations change from the local, state, and national organizations pertaining to these or other communicable illnesses.  The district’s priority is to keep our students and staff healthy and safe.
Please call 610-352-2400 for an appointment
