As of Tuesday, November 3, 2020, we are moving to remote instruction at the secondary level (grades 7-12). This operating status will remain in effect until at least Friday, November 6, 2020. As a reminder, Monday, November 2 is an in-service/ Act 80 day, so students do not have school.
Four Senior High School students -- Juliana Bish, Micah Fabrizzi, Katelyn Knights, and Emma Teff – all scored in the top 2.5% on the PSAT! As a result, these students were eligible to apply for the College Board National Recognition Program last spring and were identified as College Board National Recognition Program Scholars this fall!
This program enables students to highlight their outstanding educational achievements to top colleges and universities. Congratulations to Juliana, Micah, Katelyn and Emma!
Our food service program will continue next week. Secondary families (grades 7-12) who are in need of meals may sign up to receive breakfast and lunch for free during this temporary remote learning period.
It was brought to our attention that some families were unable to access the registration link we sent earlier this morning. Please use this link to register: https://forms.gle/Rnt3dRejKK3XBUfL8
We will distribute meals on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 between 11 am and 1 pm at Broad Street School and the Senior High School. Each registered student will receive 4 breakfasts and 4 lunches.
