Quarter 1 Report Cards
A test of School Messenger (our emergency notification system) went out this past Friday, October 25, 2019 at noon. If you did not receive that test message, please follow the instructions below to sign up or give our main office a call at (814)337-1659 for assistance.
School Messenger is our new automated emergency notification system. This is our primary system for emergency notifications to parents, students, staff and residents.
Parents who completed the Returning Student Registration online through Unified Classroom http://classroom.powerschool.com or submitted a Student Emergency Information form to the school office will receive a call and email if it was provided at the time of registration. Any individual who is listed as an “Emergency Contact” will receive emergency notifications. Parents/Guardians can adjust notification settings and emergency contacts in Unified Classroom at any time.
Any student, staff member or resident may sign up to receive notifications at the following address http://asp.schoolmessenger.com/penncrest/subscriber and select his/her method of notification.
Flexible Instruction Days (FID)
The PENNCREST School District is pleased to announce that we are one of 87 school districts in Pennsylvania granted permission to implement Flexible Instruction Days or FIDs.
A FID will allow learning to continue on a day PENNCREST is closed/cancelled due to a winter storm or other emergency. This Flexible Instruction Day or FID will count for attendance and will not require a snow make-up day. The Snow Make-up Days on the 2019-2020 school calendar will be days off with school not in session for each FID used. During the first week of November students will be instructed on how to access lessons during a Flexible Instruction Day.
For more information about Flexible Instructional Days please check out the FID FAQ document:
