Students received prizes for completing trivia or being the first to answer the daily trivia question. On Monday, March 27th, each Advisory competed in Kahoot and the winning Advisory was Mrs. Stoddart.

Lost & Found! We have a large amount of lost & found items from the winter months. It includes jackets, sweatshirts, sneakers, lunch boxes, and water bottles. Lost & found is located next to the cafeteria. Students are encouraged to look for any lost items.

Bus Patrol Information

BusPatrol is a program approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation that seeks to curb dangerous motorist behavior around school buses and make the journey to and from school safer for all student riders. As part of the BusPatrol program, all Souderton Area School District school buses have safety technology cameras, including stop-arm enforcement cameras. This safety technology is designed to capture school bus violation events. A stop-arm violation will carry a fine. Violations are confirmed by local law enforcement.

The BusPatrol program is entirely funded by fees from stop-arm violations.

Additional information is available on the Souderton Area School District website under transportation.
