QCSD mask exemption request form

Quakertown Community School District families who would like to apply for a mask exemption for their student(s) must fully complete this form and email it to their school principal. Please submit a separate form for each child. To help with the process, have your child bring a paper copy of your fully completed form with them to school.
Masks are still required to ride on district school buses, whether a mask exemption form is submitted or not.


Free COVID-19 testing

  • Bucks County school employees and contractors.
  • Bucks County children who have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19.

This free testing opportunity is not for individuals required to provide proof of a negative COVID test in lieu of vaccination. Per the Bucks County Health Department, individuals required to produce proof of a negative test in lieu of vaccination will need to secure other testing arrangements.

ESSER Funding


Approximately $5.6 million of funding through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) federal grant program has been allocated to the Quakertown Community School District.

School districts are required to meet several specifications to receive this funding. The first is that they follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance with their Health And Safety Plan. Another is to receive public input and feedback from stakeholders.

The essence of QCSD's ESSER Funding Plan is focused on the myriad of academic, social-emotional, and mental health issues that resulted from the COVID-19 Pandemic. The federal dollars are one-time money and must be targeted at those needs.

Please take the time to review the Plan here and provide your feedback to Superintendent Dr. Bill Harner and the School Board at board@qcsd.org.
