Preliminary PSSA scores are in, but we have not had time to analyze them. We will have a report in August.
The bulk of scheduling was completed prior to the last day of school.
Teachers received their teaching assignments by the end of May; however, we needed to "tweak" it, which we will be finishing up after Mrs. Solomon returns and I am back from vacation, not recouping from surgery. Students will receive their schedules the second week of August. This was an improvement from previous years when the scheduling was still being completed in August.

Email Problem Resolved
There was a problem towards the end of July whereby we could not send email to certain places – frontiernet.net was one of them. This has been resolved. On June 15th I had to reconfigure our Internet connection. As a result of this, there was a change that Frontier needed to make that wasn’t done at that time.
