PA school district cancels classes after teachers call out sick due to vaccine reactions

By: | March 22, 2021

All five schools in the Upper Perkiomen School District closed last Friday after dozens of staff members called out sick. The superintendent says so many staff members called out because of reactions to recent COVID vaccinations.

Superintendent Dr. Allyn Roche called a “functional closure” for Friday, meaning both in-person and virtual learning had been canceled for the day because 40 teachers and other staff called out sick.

The sickout comes after 175 staff members in the school district received the COVID vaccine two days before.
