Physicals for ALL SPORTS will be conducted on July 8, 2020 and July 28, 2020 from 8:30 - 1:30 in the Middle School Nurse's Office.  There will NOT be any other dates scheduled throughout the year.  If you choose NOT to have your physical done on one of these days, you will need to have it done on your own.  Everyone coming in for a physical will be required to wear a face mask and have their temperature taken prior to entering the building.  Physical forms may be printed from the school website or picked up in the middle or high school offices.  Please have forms filled out completely prior to physical.

Here is an updated schedule for the remainder of the school year:
All new Google lessons and content will end on Friday May 22nd.  The week of May 25th - 29th will be enrichment activities as well as providing additional time for students to complete missing assignments.  We hope this extra time helps our students wrap up the year and reduces some concerns.   
The last packet pickup will be May 21st and all packet work must be returned on May 28th.   

Thursday, May 14, 2020:  
Beginning as early as next week, eligible families that have already qualify for free/reduced lunch program may be entitled to electronic funds from the federal government.  If you have not applied for free/reduced lunch, please email to make arrangements for the application.  Please review the attached FAQ flyer from the PA Department of Education.

Friday, May 1, 2020:
We are pleased to announce that our Board of Directors suspended all grading policies and graduation requirements for the 19/20 school year.  Because of this, the administration had drafted the grading policy for the fourth nine weeks grading period (link below).  Hopefully this helps reduce the anxiety and stress of distance learning.  Please reach out to the building principals or counselors if you need assistance or have any questions. 

Friday, May 1, 2020:
On Friday, May 8, 2020 we will be distributing student personal belongings that were left in either the classroom or student locker.  Belongings have been bagged and labeled.  The schedule will be by last name. 

A-D 8:00-9:30  E-K 9:30-11:00  L-Q 11:00-12:30  R-Z 12:30-2:00

We ask families to pull up to the front of each building.  The belongings will be brought out.  If a child left something in one of the gym locker rooms a separate time and day will be set up for those items since it will require taking students into the building one at a time.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation. 

Friday, April 17, 2020:
The Administration would like to share great news.  The High School principal & guidance counselor are working out details for a full commencement ceremony to honor our graduates of 2020.  With restrictions still in place, commencement will be held June 3, 2020 at Brownsville Drive-In.  It will be later in the evening than usual and will involve live and recorded video for display on the big screen, with audio streaming through the system's radio frequency into cars.  All details will be shared as soon as they are finalized.  We want to thank teachers, parents, and students for continuing to excel!

Sunday, April 5, 2020:
Planned instruction resumes tomorrow.  Students with internet access must log into all of their Google Classrooms each day at any time, but teachers can only be reached during their regular scheduled class time.  Attendance the first week will be used daily to identify the number of students that will need packets.  It's very important for students to log into their classrooms daily.  Those without access must call / email the teacher for a copy of packets to complete.  We will be reaching out to families midweek for students that have not logged in.  Details for packet pickup and completed packet drop off details will be sent midweek.
