PSSA Testing

Dear parents! Due to PSSA testing in grades 6th – 8th, all high school students will be on a modified schedule. On this coming Friday, April 8th, students in grades 9-12 will be dismissed at 1pm.

Additionally, on the following dates, students in grades 9-12 will report to school promptly at 11 AM:  Those dates are: Monday April 11th, Tuesday April 12th, Wednesday April 13th, Thursday April 14th, Monday April 18th, Tuesday April 19th and Wednesday April 20th. Even though we have a modified schedule we expect students to report to school each day at their designated time.  Please encourage your students to attend school every day.

This will not affect Rabbit transportation for students.  Students receiving specialized van or bus services will be addressed accordingly.

Thank you!
