Parent Drop-off and Pick-up

Friendly reminder for student drop-off / pick up even as our building renovation continues! In the morning between 7:00 and 7:30am please drop off students at either the cafeteria area or the greenhouse area of the building followed by directly exiting onto route 82. Please do not use the road on the route 82 side of the building as this is a bus lane only for thru traffic. Additionally, the access road off of Doe Run road is “in only” in the morning. Please do not drop off students while on the access road as this creates pedestrian traffic in the area of all the moving vehicles. Please wait until next to the building to drop off students. The afternoon pick-up has the access road off Doe Run as an “out only” road. Please refrain from picking up students at the route 82 entrance between 2:00 and 2:30pm as buses line up for dismissal in that area. As always, thanks for your continued cooperation with this most important safety matter.

Homework for Absent Students

Parents or guardians may call the office at 610-347-2000 before 9:00 AM to request homework if a student has been absent for two or more consecutive days. We ask that you speak directly with a member of the office staff when making this type of request. Please do not leave requests for class and/or homework assignments on staff members’ voice mail systems or staff members' e-mail. School personnel will retrieve needed books and materials from lockers. Parents are asked to collect all materials in the office to ensure that all assignments reach the student. The materials will be available on the counter located in the main office from 2:30 to 3:00 the day the request is received.
