Covid-19 Advice

Stay Healthy---Wash Your Hands!

Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness.

What Is The Right Way To Wash Your Hands?

  • Wet your hands with clean running water and apply soap.
  • Rub your hands together to make a lather and scrub them well; be sure to scrub the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Continue rubbing your hands for 20 seconds. About the same amount of time it takes you to sing the Happy Birthday song from beginning to end twice.
  • Rinse your hands well under running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry.

When Should You Wash Your Hands?

  • Before, during, and after preparing food
  • Before eating
  • Before and after caring for someone who is sick
  • Before and after treating a cut or a wound
  • After using the toilet
  • After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
  • After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste

Hello from Mrs. Carberry, SCTC Guidance Counselor

Hello, I want you to know that I miss you and I am still here for you. I would rather be at SCTC with you and all of our awesome SCTC students. If you want to get in touch with me, you can reach me at: or 814-443-3651 x6127.

SCTC Administration has been working hard to let you know we want to stay in touch with you. They have set up a Google Meet account that I will be available for you to chat for an hour during the school day.

I also want to inform the seniors that you do not need to stress over the NOCTI or NIMS tests. The Pennsylvania State Department of Education has cancelled all standardized testing for the remainder of this school year. If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact me or Mr. Smiach at: or through his Google Meet account.

Please know I’d enjoy hearing from you and hope you all are well. Looking forward to seeing you again. Stay Safe!
