Summer School Information Update
Please Return Your Library Books!
Chrome Book/ Hot Spot Information Update
Students who received chrome books from Westmoreland County Public Schools should plan to keep their chrome book over the summer unless you are transferring to a different school division. If you are not planning to return to school in Westmoreland, please turn in your chrome book and hot spot. Hot spots will be deactivated on June 4th because we are transitioning to new hot spots next school year. Families should keep their current hot spots until we do a swap out distribution. This will likely occur at the end of July. More information on this will be shared with parents at a later date. In order to receive a new hot spot, families will need to return the previous hot spot in working condition. Thank you!
In-Person Students: Bring Art Shirts
Important Information for End of Year
