Friendly Parents and Multilingual Speakers Needed...
Join us on the Welcoming Committee for the 2017-2018 school year! Our goal is to reach out to families who are new to the district, answer their questions, and ease their transition to the school and community. We connect new families with committee members who have children of similar ages, and we hold New Family Coffees once per month for those who are able to come. In addition, multilingual committee members are available to assist new families in their native language. We are preparing now for the new families who will be arriving this summer and fall. For more info or to join the committee, contact Jen Marsala at jenmarsala@verizon.net.

News from the Nurse for next year-  
Important Medical Information for Next School Year- 
Student entering 7th grade in September 2017 
The Pennsylvania Department of health requires all children entering 7th grade to have the following:
1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria , acellular pertussis (Tdap) - if 5 years has elapsed since last tetanus immunization
1 dose meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)
If the school nurse does not have documentation of your child receiving one or more of these immunizations, you will receive a notification letter in the fall.
Remember, this information is required before your child begins Grade 7 in September.
Notice for Current 6th Grade Students -
Dental Health Requirements- The Public School Code of Pennsylvania requires all children in grades 7 to have a dental examination. Examinations completed by a family dentist within one year prior to the start of the school year are accepted for the required proof of such care. The required dental form can be reached at the school district web site under Student Health Services.
Thank you for your assistance in meeting this state mandate.
Notice to 5th Grade Parents-
Physical Exam Requirement- The Pennsylvania School Act requires that all students in grade six receive a medical examination. Please have your physician either give you a copy of the exam with immunization update
