We are experiencing some technical issues with our Free and Reduced online application process. We will post an update on our website when the issue is resolved.

We apologize for the inconvenience. 

2019-2020 Year Book Announcement Jun 5, 2020

We hope this message finds you all safe and healthy.  

We wanted to pass along some important information regarding the 2019-2020 McQuistion Yearbook.  Due to the current situation, our yearbook has been delayed.  We are working with Lifetouch to get these done as quickly as possible but we do not currently have an arrival date.  For those that purchased a yearbook, rest assured they are being printed and we will do our very best to get them to you when they are available.  

We will post updates on the McQuistion PTO Facebook page so if you do not currently follow us, please do so.  Our current plan is to set up a time period once the books are in for you to come to the school and pick it up.  If we are unable to make arrangements to get you the book this summer, we will make sure you get it in the fall (no matter what school you are in).  

Additionally, we will have some extra copies available for $20 for those that would still like to purchase.  Come to the scheduled pickup time if you would like to purchase one but please bring the exact amount as we will not have any change available.  

We would like to thank all of you for your support over this past year.  We know this is not the ending everyone planned but we hope you will make the most of your summer and we can all come back together stronger than ever in the fall.  

Take care and thank you again!

Food Service Celebration Jun 3, 2020 food service

Since our schools physically closed on March 17, our food service team has been working to provide meals to our students. Did you know that as of this week they prepared over 200,000 meals? This calls for a celebration!

On Wednesday, June 3, the school district recognized and celebrated the hard work of 40 food service employees.

The Butler County Commissioners issued a proclamation at a ceremony. In addition, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank presented a plaque to Emily Brittain Community Partnership and Demonstration School for their exceptional results in the Southwestern Pennsylvania School Breakfast Challenge. The goal of this challenge was to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program throughout our region. Emily Brittain had a 17% increase in School Breakfast participation in October 2019 compared to October 2018.

Fun Facts

  • Total meals served each day -- more than 2,000
  • Total meals served to date -- just over 200,000
  • Total meals delivered to front doors -- about 185,000
  • Number of food service employees – about 40
  • Number of School Police -- 24 (for meal delivery)
  • Number of miles traveled on the delivery routes each day -- almost 250 square miles

We would like to thank all of our food service employees, our school police officers and the Nutrition Group for making this possible!
