The Radnor Township School District is going virtual again due to an increase in coronavirus cases amid district families and staffers. According to the district, Monday, April 18 will be a fully virtual instruction day to allow students and staff ample time to take a covid test before returning to school. The district is offering free drop-in testing the Monday after Easter for students and staff interested in being tested. The district had 34 positive cases reported by families and staff which is an increase from 11 positive cases the previous week and three cases the week before. The decision is also partially based on the potential of increased spread during spring break, the district said.
In other news, a piece of property that was once a stop along the Underground Railroad during America’s slavery period will be preserved thanks to a forthcoming private donor gift. The long-anticipated news came years after previous controversial discussions about developing the tract of land into townhomes. The property has a long history. Its origins date back to 1734, and eventually became a station along the Underground Railroad, with the site operated by the Corson family, famous local abolitionists. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The township wanted to purchase the property, but it simply couldn’t match offers that were being made by developers.
