School Year Update

April 9th, 2020


Dear Duquesne Family,


Earlier today, Governor Tom Wolf has announced that all Pennsylvania K-12 schools and programs, public and private, are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  This action was taken to protect the health and safety of students, families and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.   This means that moving forward until June, schools throughout the state are to continue to provide online classes and other virtual activities.


While our school may be closed, at Duquesne Elementary, the learning continues.   The district will still follow its current education plan and provide online instruction for all students.   Coursework can be accessed through the Online Learning link on the district’s homepage. 


In addition, the Duquesne City School District will continue to support its community through its food delivery program.  School lunches will still be available at Duquesne Elementary School as well as strategic food drop off spots every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.


While our teachers and staff miss seeing your children in our classrooms every day, we nevertheless understand that the closure is for the best.  The Duquesne City School District will continue to be a resource for our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we will get through this together.  Once a Duke, always a Duke!





Sue Moyer,

Superintendent of Schools
