We would like to thank you for supporting our students, faculty, and staff this year. We had a great fall season of sports and fun activities. All of which would not have been as successful without your help! We hope you all had a very happy holiday season, and wish you a joyous New Year!




Warmest regards,

Mr. Dayton's SEL Tip of the Week!

Experts say children should learn their full name, address (including street, town and state) and their parents' names and phone numbers. The information can help families in an emergency.


Please make sure that your child has memorized your cell phone, home phone, and two emergency contact numbers!

What is Safe2SaySomething?

Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late.

How does Safe2Say Something Work?

  • Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
  • Crisis center reviews, assesses and processes all submissions
  • Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention
  • If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app
